The Mazda RX2, Mazda RX3, Mazda RX4, Mazda RX7 and now Mazda RX8 are all illustrations of thriving rotary motor sports vehicles. The New Mazda 16x Rotary Motor should even further popularize this offbeat combustion engine which characteristics (as rotaries generally have) a compact style with an exceptional energy-to-body weight ratio all in just 1.6 Liters.
Mazda is contacting this new rotary motor the “very long-stroke rotary engine.” As you may possibly previously know, the 13B rotary engine has a displacement of just 1300cc, which is 1.3 Liters. While the Mazda 16x has an motor displacement of 1600cc (800cc x 2), which is 1.6 Liters and however they have built the 16x appreciably more substantial than the 13B – it weighs fewer than a 13B. This is because of to aluminum facet housings, which Mazda suggests should not scare us.
Mazda’s goal listed here is “increased thermal effectiveness” – which fundamentally indicates, any car or truck powered by the Mazda 16x is heading to transfer like stink. Mazda claims this [thermal efficiency] will enhance torque at all engine speeds. (Rotary engines are notorious for having low torque, specially on the lower-close.)
They’ve also extra Immediate Fuel Injection so you can expect the 16x to be considerably much more economical compared to rotaries of the past. Harmful emissions will be greatly diminished as very well and energy should be marginally elevated in contrast to typical multi-position gasoline injected rotaries these types of as the 13B. This really should lean the gasoline-air combination out as very well and may make improvements to the rotaries awful routine of flooding each and every time you go her down the street a block.
Mazda has finished unbelievable matters with their mild and sporty 1.3 Liter 13B – just imagine what they can do with this new Mazda 16x! Far better but, just envision what you could do with this new Mazda 16x rotary engine! Regretably, nevertheless, Mazda has yet to announce a creation car to carry the 16x. The closest we have gotten is the Mazda Taiki, a considerably-out prototype produced by Mazda beneath the “Nagare”(which is, Japanese for “movement”) strategy of design and style.
So when will we see this new rotary motor in action?
Numerous predicted this new rotary engine to show up in the 2009 Mazda RX8, but when the go over was pulled off at the North American International Auto Clearly show in Detroit, we noticed absolutely nothing but the Mazda 13B MSP Renesis engine beneath it is glimmering hood.
To respond to the question your guess is as superior as mine.
