Proton X50 2020 ada 2 enjin turbo – ‘direct injection’ dan ‘port’, apa bezanya?

Seperti yang sedia maklum, Proton X50 2020 yang dipasang di Tanjung Malim menawarkan dua pilihan enjin. Kedua-duanya ialah unit DOHC berpengecas turbo 1.5 liter dengan 3 silinder, tapi sistem bahan apinya berbeza – enjin 1.5T MPI menggunakan ‘port injection’ (suntikan port) manakala yang 1.5 TGDI menggunakan ‘direct injection’ (suntikan langsung).Unit ‘direct injection’ tiga silinder (1.5 TGDI, kod nama JLH-3G15TD) menjana 177 PS pada 5,500 rpm dan

2020 Proton X50 has 2 turbo engines – one direct injection, one port, what’s the difference?

As you would’ve know by now, the 2020 Proton X50, which is manufactured in Tanjung Malim, is offered in two engine options. Both are DOHC 1.5-litre turbocharged units but the fuel system is different, the 1.5T MPI engine uses port injection while the 1.5 TGDI uses direct injection.The three cylinder direct injection unit (1.5 TGDI, codename JLH-3G15TD) makes 177 PS at 5,500 rpm and 255 Nm 1,500 – 4,000 rpm while the port injection (Proton calls it Multi Point Injection, MPI) 1.5T MPI

No Toyota Direct Shift CVT for the Perodua D55L, why?

The 2021 Perodua D55L is Perodua’s first-ever model to be fitted with a CVT-type automatic. Now, before you throw a tantrum at the mere mention of CVT, the one fitted to the D55L is very different from CVTs of yore.You see, the Perodua D55Ls Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT) features a combination of steel chains and gear set, vastly different from regular CVTs that utilizes only belts or chains. Mechanically, the D-CVT is similar but not identical to Toyotas vaunted Direct Shift CVT, despite both uni

Perodua为何不使用Toyota Direct Shift CVT?

2021 Perodua D55L是Perodua旗下首款搭载CVT自排变速箱的车型。不过,虽然D55L采用了CVT变速箱,但这具变速箱跟你想象中的CVT可不一样。Perodua D55L搭载的是双模式CVT(D-CVT),这具变速箱结合了钢带和齿轮组两种传动结构,这与仅使用钢带或链条的普通CVT变速箱有着很大的差别。从机械结构上看,D-CVT和Toyota旗下的Direct Shift CVT都采用了钢带和齿轮组的混合结构,这也是两者唯一的共同点。从实际工作原理上看,这两者也有着很大的差别。推荐阅读:Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift是Toyota在CVT技术上最新的成果,它能够达到接近于双离合(DCT)变速箱的性能,同时又能保持CVT的平顺性和经济性。它在多个TNGA-B平台的Toyota车型上都有搭载,如Toyota Yaris和Toyota Yaris Cross等;同时,它也被TNGA-K平台的车型所采用,如Toyota

Kenapa Perodua Ativa (D55L) tak guna Direct Shift CVT dari Toyota? – Ini sebabnya

Seperti yang pernah dimaklumkan, Ativa (D55L) bakal menjadi model Perodua pertama yang datang dengan transmisi CVT. Sebelum itu, perlu dimaklumkan bahawa CVT ini agak lain daripada CVT yang biasa anda dengar.Berbeza dengan CVT konvensional yang guna belt atau chain, jenis Dual-mode (D-CVT) yang terdapat pada Perodua Ativa (D55L) ini menggunakan steel chain dan set gear.Secara mekanikal, konsep D-CVT adalah sama seperti Toyota Direct Shift CVT. Apa yang berbeza ialah operasinya.Apa maksud Toyota

Lexus UX’s Direct-Shift CVT is a CVT enthusiasts can accept

During the recent Lexus UX drive, we were impressed with how the CVT operates and feel. Combined with the new 2.0-litre Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine, the Lexus UX felt peppy and engaging to drive around town.However, not many are aware of Toyota’s CVT being one of the most technologically advanced CVT out there, so we decided to share this with you readers for further understanding.  First, we need to understand the concept of CVT.

700 km in one full 45-litre tank for the 2020 Proton X50 1.5 TGDI

Proton has announced today that the Proton X50 will have a claimed fuel consumption of 6.4-litre/100 km for the 1.5 TGDI (177 PS/255 Nm) engine variant and 6.5-litre/100 km for the 1.5T MPI (150 PS/226 Nm) variant. The tests are done using the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) method.Yes you read that right. The more powerful engine is more fuel efficient. Why? Because the 1.5 TGDI engine uses direct injection while the 1.5T MPI engine uses port injection.We also know that the Proton X50 has a 4

Sorry, we made a mistake. All 2020 Proton X50 1.5 will be 3-cylinders, no 4-cylinders

We’ve just received confirmation from Proton’s officials that the 2020 Proton X50 1.5T & 1.5 TGDi will both be 3-cylinders. Our earlier reports that indicates the 1.5-litre multi-port injection turbo engine is a 4-cylinder unit is incorrect. All articles have since been amended.Proton will be offering two 1.5-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine options for the X50 the difference between them is the type of fuel system used.

After nearly a decade of speculations, the Hyundai Santa Cruz is now a reality, exclusive only for the North American market.The production Santa Cruz wears the concept car’s name, and also the unibody construction, meaning it is closer to a Honda Ridgeline, or in our local Malaysian context, the Ssangyong Actyon Sports, and of course the Proton Arena.Regular pick-up trucks like a Toyota Hilux normally use a ladder frame-type chassis for superior towing capability, but at the expense of ri
