A 4.5L V6? Hardly the most refined option out there, but at least it’ll get the job done. And please make sure to state exact peak power and torque outputs for both engines, as well as the RPMs those are delivered.
I’ve redone the Yosemite post, it should be alright now
The car looks quite good, but this powertrain choice is weird. No, wait - WEEEEIRD. To start, a 4.5 V6, I mean, sure you can make such engine, but why? At that size a V8 or possibly an I6 would make a bit more sense - just because they won’t shake the whole car (check out the smoothness of that V6 - I’d say it’s good to stay above 40). Then the smaller one, while has a perfectly reasonable displacement, is also unusually low powered for a turbo engine of such size. It’s worth checking if the flow through the engine isn’t needlessly restricted at some point. And, on a final note, is that a non-advanced automatic in the 3.7 trims? That’s super outdated stuff, not worth the saved cost. Makes the car slower and less efficient.
Don’t worry though, I’m an engine perfectionist in this game, so that all doesn’t mean the car is bad. Also, I like the formatting and writting, clean and nice.
I think the V6s are N/A
Nice design…but wouldn’t it be more logical to just add a turbo on the existing 3.5 V6 instead of adding a V6 that is larger than some V8s for fuel economy purposes?
They pretty much can’t be with those torque figures.
Maybe turbodeisel then?
the demand for a V8 is on the rise, and we at Avador decded it would be a good idea to produce one. So as a result of that, a 4.6 StarTorq V8 engine is currently in the making. Thanks for your feedback.
With a 4.5L V6, I think it would b better to start development of a bigger (5.6-7.0L) V8 to cover more bases. It would probably also be a better use of R&D money.
Nice one, though quite… odd in many ways. That’s suuuuch a gap between the 2.0 and the V6, huge, both in power and price. Maybe a higher powered 2.0, or a milder tune of the V6 could slot in there? Another unusual thing is the longitudinal FWD (I’m actually surprised you could put a 2.0 in there with this layout) - any particular reason for that? It lends itself nicely to a conversion to AWD (which, BTW, would be useful for that SSE trim) and is an obvious choice for boxers, but I don’t see that here. And to top it all off, a rear wiper in a sedan - charming
Yup, the gap between the engines is quite big, though the SSE model is equipped with better suspension, brakes, specialized interior and of course a better engine, so the price difference is quite high. There isn’t much reasons for the longitudinal FWD it’s just a quirk of the Lanero. Also the rear wiper… don’t ask me why i put it there, that is probably also made just for Doug DeMuro’s review.
Doug would be so fascinated by that rear wiper lol. Cool car man!!
AWD with the V6 would be a great combination to be honest - it would make for a formidable competitor to the Audi S4 of the same vintage.
Yes, it definitely would! Unfortunately Spader stopped making the 2nd generation Lanero in 2009, but there definitely were some tuners who converted it to AWD tho.
Nice…I like those lights
