Italo-American automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) not stop their activity while economically it seems that they are not going very well. Now you touch the shift to their new range of engines of gasoline of small displacement and low consumption. Makes three months the firm announced that presented two new mechanical gasoline of small cylinder capacity called FireFly.
When we talk about Fiat’s small engines (with the exception of the new TwinAir) the current mechanical Firecomes to mind. These motors carry with us a few years already, but the result that them are giving is so good that them have stretched until already not have could more. However, it must be said that although the FireFly mechanics are completely new, many of the solutions employed by the Fire are present in them.
As already you have in your time, them two first mechanical of this new family of motor gasoline are of aspiration atmospheric and are represented by a three cylinders with 1 litre of displacement, 8 valves and a power of 72 cv. The other engine is a four-cylinder 1.3 liter, 8 valves and 101 HP. The main feature of both blocks is that its design and construction is modular, by what will share a high number of components.
If have in has this feature, we have that the block of 1 litre and the of 1.3 litres are the same but with the difference of that the second has a cylinder more. This measure of design will mark save at the time of its manufacture. In addition, from this base brand may create a new family of mechanical adapted to the needs of its smaller models.
On this occasion, the news is that FCA has decided that to meet the demand in Europe occur in the plant that are in Bielsko-Biala (Poland). Currently the engines that are manufactured there are the TwinAir 0.9 and 1.3 Multijet diesel in its different variants of power. These engines will join the new FireFly family and for this they have made an investment of 250 million euros to adapt the plant and productive lines.
The first market that have reached these engines it was Brazil in the new Fiat Uno, but with the next generation of the Fiat 500 and Panda should reach out to the rest of Europe. In addition, in a not-too-distant future will incorporate versions with turbo to reach larger FCA models.
