Independently developed, Geely’s new 1.4L JLB-4G14T turbocharged engine has won the 2017 “China Heart” top ten engine award. It is positioned in the freshly launched Vision S1 crossover SUV and the upcoming 2018 Emgrand GL.
The “China Heart” is the “Oscars” of engines awards in China. 20 engines were selected for the finals and Geely’s 1.4T competed with the likes of Volkswagen, Toyota, and Ford to become chosen as one of China’s top ten engines in 2017. The competition juror and vice president of Tongji University School of Mechanical Engineering, Li Jiguang said:
“This engine, transmission, and turbocharger works together perfectly offering smooth shifting, fast response, continuous and stable power output, good power performance, and good fuel economy. It includes a lot of advanced technologiesand the engine compartment layout is well thought out, it’s a reflection of rising level of engine research and development from Chinese automakers.”
The JLB-4G14T turbocharged engine is operational with:
- A highly-efficient turbocharger, maintenance-free timing belt, roller rocker arm, hydraulic tappet,
- Cylinder headwith incorporated exhaust manifold,
- All plastic cylinder head cover, plastic intake manifold, dual mass Flywheeland other advanced technology.
- It presenst strong power performance, fast response, long life, minimal vibration and noise, energy efficiency, and good environmental protection.
The engine has a maximum power output of 98kW at 5200rpm, a maximum torque of 215Nm at 2000 – 4000 rpm and a fuel consumption of merely 6L per 100km. Presently the engine is prepared on the new Geely Vision S1 Crossover SUV and will be equipped on the new 2018 Emgrand GL.
Geely Auto, Earlier in May, released its new technology brand iNTEC which comprised of Geely’s G-Power line of high efficiency powertrain technology. Geely aspires to become a global leader in the powertrain field in the next three years. The totally self-developed 1.4T engine is an important member of the G-Power family and is advancing Geely’s position as a powertrain leader.
Geely’s next-generation T/TD series engines for example the 1.0TD and 1.5TD put in the most advanced powertrain technologies in the world including second-generation turbocharger technology, direction injection technology, engine lightening technology, and engine silencing technology. They will present the best in class power performance, fuel economy, and NVH performance giving consumers with more efficient, more consistent, and quieter power. The 1.0TD and 1.5TD will be accessible on all new Geely models within three years.
