Suzuki Car Engines; Liana engine, X-90, Grand Vitara and much more
Suzuki Motors is a Japanese
multinational corporation company producing a range of automobiles with a variety
of small combustion-powered car engines. These first Suzuki motor vehicles were
powered by a then-innovative, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-cylinder engine.
A description of their more recent car engines can be seen below and bought
at enginesandgearboxes.co.uk as used, reconditioned or secondhand, they are delivered
worldwide and are 100% guaranteed.
The G family engine
This engine is a type of internal combustion engine. The internal combustion engine is an engine
in which the combustion, or rapid oxidation, of gas and air occurs in a confined
space called a combustion chamber. This exothermic reaction of a fuel with an oxidizer
creates gases of high temperature and pressure, which are permitted to expand. The
defining feature of an internal combustion engine is that useful work is performed
by the expanding hot gases acting directly to cause pressure, further causing movement
of the piston inside the cylinder. For example by acting on pistons, rotors, or
even by pressing on and moving the entire engine itself.
This contrasts with external combustion engines, such as steam engines and Stirling
engines, which use an external combustion chamber to heat a separate working fluid,
which then in turn does work, for example by moving a piston.
The term Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is almost always used
to refer specifically to reciprocating engines, Wankel engines and similar designs
in which combustion is intermittent. However, continuous combustion engines, such
as jet engines, most rockets and many gas turbines are also internal combustion
The G10 is an inline 3 cylinder engine utilizing aluminum alloy for the block, cylinder
head and pistons. The G10 has 1.0 liter of displacement and is equipped with either
a carburetor or electronic fuel injection and has an optional turbocharger. It has
a single overhead camshaft driving six valves.
The G13 is an in line 4 cylinder engine utilizing aluminum alloy for the block,
cylinder head and pistons. Displacing 1.3 L (1298 cc/79 in³), fuel delivery is either
through a carburetor, a single point fuel injection or a multi-point fuel injection.
The engine was produced as either an 8 valve with a single overhead camshaft (G13A)
or as a 16 valve with double overhead camshafts (G13B).
The H family engine
is a line of 60° V6 automobile engines from Suzuki. Ranging in displacement from
2.0 L to 2.7 L, the H family was a modern all-aluminum engine with dual overhead
cams, 24 valves, and multi-port fuel injection. It was co-developed with Mazda,
which used a similar design in their 2.0 L KF V6. The H family was introduced in
1995 with the H20, but Suzuki and Mazda's designs diverged greatly with the former
increasing displacement and the latter experimenting with alternative induction
technologies and smaller engine sizes.
Automobiles available are:
The Ignis was originally manufactured as a five-door hatchback,
powered by a new generation of Suzuki 4-cylinder engines, the M family. This family
featured DOHC, four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing. Displacement
ranged from 1.3 to 1.5 L, and power going from 89 to 110 PS JIS (65 to 81 kW). Only
the 1.3 L, detuned to 83 PS (61 kW) was available in export markets.
The Suzuki Swift / Cultus /
Forsa is a subcompact automobile. At its introduction in 1985, it was named
the SA-310, but in 1986 it was renamed the Swift. Powered by a modest 993 cc straight-3
engine giving 50 hp (37 kW), 0 to 100 km/h was 14.9 seconds with a top speed of
145 km/h. The engine is very light, weighing only 63 kg.
The Suzuki Aerio (called the
Liana in Europe, South Asia and Australia) is a compact car. It fits
in between the compact and lower mid-size segments. The car was introduced in 2001
as a replacement for the Esteem / Baleno, with a tall 5-door hatchback (for maximum
inner room efficiency) or 4-door sedan bodies. It featured two different 16-valve
gasoline engines, with 1.5 L and 1.8 L, this one capable of 125 PS JIS (92 kW).
In North America, the Aerio is considered a more sporty alternative, so it featured
a bigger and more powerful 2.0 L engine, with 145 hp SAE (108 kW).
The Suzuki X-90 (SUV Cabrio
in Japan) was a small SUV sold from 1996 through 1998. It was related to
the Suzuki Sidekick, the X-90 was available with four wheel drive or rear wheel
drive and used a 1.6 L I4 16-valve engine which produced 95 hp.
The Suzuki Grand Vitara
is a compact SUV, this model was equipped with two mid-mounted twin-turbo V6's combined
to deliver 985 hp.
Others models are:
Aerio / Liana, APV / Carry, Cultus Crescent, / Escudo / Sidekick, Jimny, SJ-Series
/ Samurai / Sierra / Santana, SX4, XL-7, Wagon.
