More than 20 years in development, INFINITI's new four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline VC-T engine represents a major breakthrough in internal-combustion powertrain technology. Roland Krueger, president of Infiniti Motor Company said, "VC-T technology is a step change for INFINITI. It is a revolutionary next-step in optimizing the efficiency of the internal combustion engine. This technological breakthrough delivers the power of a high-performance 2.0-liter turbo gasoline engine with a high level of efficiency at the same time."
VC-T technology signifies a new chapter in the story of the internal combustion engine - engines are no longer limited by a fixed compression ratio. The ingenuity of VC-T engine technology lies in its ability to transform itself and seamlessly raise or lower the height the pistons reach. As a consequence, the displacement of the engine changes and the compression ratio can vary anywhere between 8:1 (for high performance) and 14:1 (for high efficiency). The sophisticated engine control logic automatically applies the optimum ratio, depending on what the driving situation demands.
VC-T technology delivers multiple customer benefits including reduced fuel consumption and emissions, reduced noise and vibration levels; it is also lighter and more compact than comparable conventional engines.INFINITI reveals All-New QX50
