INFINITI VC-Turbo Engine
World’s First Technology
We unveiled it. Soon, you can experience it. Presenting the new INFINITI VC-Turbo, promising to be one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. Twenty years in the making, it’s ready to bring you more power and endurance, on demand.
"The pioneering new VC-Turbo powertrain represents a leap forward for engine development."
Roland Krueger, President, INFINITI
The VC-Turbo is the first production-ready variable compression ratio engine. Perfectly in tune with your drive, the VC-Turbo transforms on demand to optimize power and efficiency. When you accelerate, it lowers the compression ratio to 8:1, delivering the turbo boost you crave. At cruising speeds, the ratio rises to a high of 14.1, maximizing fuel economy for a longer journey.
A Daring Combination
Unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the VC-Turbo is an inspired fusion of two worlds. It combines the power of a high-performance 2.0 litre gas engine with the torque and efficiency of an advanced diesel powertrain. A feat of engineering that takes you further, faster.
The Standard Is Set
INFINITI’s VC-Turbo technology marks a significant leap forward for the internal combustion engine. Designed for exhilaration and endurance, it joins the ranks of other renowned powertrain innovations like liquid cooling, fuel injection and turbocharging. By mastering variable compression ratios, the VC-Turbo sets a new standard for power and efficiency. Experience the evolution when it arrives in 2018.
