What are the reasons why Nigerians always runs away from V6 Engines? Does it have maintanance problem? Automobile Engineers has been able to deduce the following:
In a 4-cylinder engine, there are four pistons rising and falling in four chambers.
A 6-cylinder engine features six pistons and produces a theoretical 50% more power than the same 4-cylinder engine. While a 4-cylinder engine might hesitate when you press on the gas, a 6-cylinder will tend to be more responsive, with greater get-up-and-go.
The 4-cylinder engine is standard in smaller cars, as the relatively light weight of the vehicle makes it an economical choice with plenty of power for average motoring needs.
Many models include a 6-cylinder engine upgrade option.
More cylinders equal more power when comparing the same engine models.
If deciding between a 4 and 6-cylinder engine on a new vehicle, there are a few considerations. SEE MORE AFTER CUT>>>>
The smaller engine will be less expensive and should get slightly better gas mileage, just on gas. And the disadvantage of a 4 cylinder is a lack of power that might factor in more for commuters and travelers. For hilly or mountainous areas, the 6-cylinder engine would likely be a better choice
