Although on paper power and torque smaller than the old model engine, All-New Rush engine is said to offer a sense of driving better and more fuel efficient. Both machine characters are different.
All-New Rush uses 2NR-VE 1.5L engine that has been used in the Grand New Avanza. The pacemaker replaced the old Rush engine, the 3SZ-VE 1.5L which also used the previous model Avanza. Also read: http://www.newcars2018usa.com/2017-toyota-land-cruiser-new-review/
From the explanation of Tommy Hermansyah Product Knowledge of Toyota Astra Motor (TAM), the difference between the characters of the two machines really feels different when tested on a dyno machine. The result, 2NR-VE engine is smoother than 3SZ-VE.
“So, if the old machine from the beginning is responsive, 0 – 100 kpj pull is more linear. While 2NR-VE character is more smooth. The engine holds the rpm is not high during the replacement of teeth, so more subtle, “said Tommy, Thursday (23/11/2017).
Tommy realizes many questions as to why power and torque go down on the All-New Rush. He explained, although down, from the results of acceleration testing 0-100 kpj on both machines are not much different. The numbers are between 11 – 12 seconds.
“On paper it’s down, but if it’s being driven like baseball feels it’s down,” Tommy said. visit: http://www.newcars2018usa.com/
