The Arlington County Fire Department is reviving a door logo last seen on county vehicles over 50 years ago.

At the same time, the department is gradually modernizing its vehicles with new features, including better ride quality on its engines. That’s according to Arlington Fire Department spokesman Captain Nate Hiner, who told ARLnow that the department’s apparatus committee opted for a 1968-70 throwback design over the “logo.” old English style door.

Beyond the visual changes, department members will have more space thanks to new cabs and chassis (the part of the vehicle that includes the chassis, engine, transmission, and other important parts) from the appliance maker. Pierce Manufacturing fire.

On top of that, air suspensions on the rear of the units will replace spring suspensions and provide “a better ride quality on our city streets,” Hiner wrote in an email.

Not only will the air suspension allow for better rides, but it will also help the department streamline suspension-related repairs. The county will no longer have to send units to remote repair facilities for these repairs, which will reduce the amount of time units will be out of service, Hiner said.

So far, four units have received the new features.

“As we continue our replacement cycle over the next few years, this number will increase,” Hiner wrote.

A single eagle-eyed tweeter called for new door graphics after the ACFD asked users if they could spot anything different about an engine pictured in a September 14. Tweeter.

  • Unveiled tonight, the 2023 Ford Super Duty pickups have been redesigned and get updated exterior and interior styling.
  • The Super Duty now offers technologies such as an on-board generator, new towing aids, a head-up display and access to a 5G wireless network.
  • Ford’s heavy-duty lineup also adds new and improved powertrains, including a new standard gasoline 6.8-liter V8 and an upgraded Power Stroke diesel engine.

The 2023 Ford Super Duty is redesigned with new styling cues, updated powertrains and new technologies. While the F-250, F-350 and F-450 are still primarily heavy workhorses, Ford is enhancing them with features aimed at taking the trucks to another level of capability and functionality. They will face, as always, the Chevrolet Silverado HD and Ram HD models which also get a makeover at this time of year.

New mugs, nicer interiors

The 2023 Super Duty lineup rolls out with seven different grille designs, which vary by available trim levels and appearance packages. The most notable visual update is the truck’s C-shaped lighting elements. All models can now also be fitted with LED headlights. The addition of long side vents is said to improve the aerodynamics of trucks. Super Duty trucks can also be dressed with new design packages that offer unique trim, wheel and paint combinations. The new XL Off-Road package specifically includes 33-inch off-road tires, skid plates, electronic locking rear differential, and more. -350.

Inside, Super Duty trucks get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s standard starting with the XL model. Higher trim levels come with a 12.0-inch unit. Audiophiles can choose between a 640-watt eight-speaker B&O audio system or a more powerful 1080-watt 18-speaker B&O setup. Other desirable interior features available include a configurable 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster, wireless charger and a center console slot designed to keep a table upright. Those looking to relax will appreciate the Super Duty’s optional Max Recline seats that fold almost flat and incorporate a lower cushion that lifts up to create an even more comfortable position.

Updated powertrain options

For 2023, the standard Super Duty engine is a new gasoline-powered 6.8-liter V8. It is associated with a 10-speed automatic transmission, like all the other engines available. Also, like all other engines, Ford doesn’t say the horsepower or torque of each one, but we expect them to meet or beat their previous outputs. This includes the gasoline-powered 7.3-liter V8, which receives revised tuning and an improved air intake. The 6.7-litre Power Stroke diesel V8 remains a staple of the Super Duty lineup, and there’s a new high-output version with updated tuning, a unique turbocharger and revised exhaust manifolds. Ford believes the upgrades will make it the most powerful diesel truck in its class. Also new for 2023, all models starting with the XLT come standard with four-wheel drive.

Tech Giants

Perhaps the most notable updates to the 2023 Super Duty trucks are their myriad of new technology-focused features. This is the first time they’ve been available with a 5G wireless connection which helps the infotainment system run faster, and it accepts over-the-air updates and allows up to 10 devices to connect to one. Wi-Fi hotspot. Additionally, Ford offers its most powerful trucks with its 2.0 kW Onboard Generator (aka ProPower Onboard). The Super Duty can also be fitted with a head-up display for the first time, and there are new driver assistance features as well. The list includes adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality as well as lane-centering assist. The addition of front and rear emergency braking helps prevent giant pickup trucks from colliding with objects at low speeds.

When it comes to towing, the Ford Super Duty is not only primed to pull massive loads, it now has high-tech assists that make the job easier. The introduction of on-board scales gives users an estimate of cargo weight to ensure they don’t exceed the payload of the truck. The feature also helps guide people on how to evenly distribute the weight of the trailer tongue. In addition to a blind-spot monitor for fifth-wheel and gooseneck towing, the Super Duty is now available with a 360-degree camera system designed specifically for trailers.

Another exciting new feature is navigation which shows the routes that best suit a trailer’s specific dimensions and weight to help avoid driver headaches. Anyone who has backed up with the tailgate down has no doubt lamented that the traditional backup camera has become unnecessary. Ford solves this problem by adding a camera in the upper part of the tailgate. This, along with the integrated parking sensors, is intended to make backing up with the tailgate down easier than ever.

Ford has yet to release pricing for the 2023 Super Duty lineup. However, the company says it will release those numbers closer to when the trucks go into production, which is expected to be early next year.

Development of the D1105-K electronically controlled small industrial diesel engineBuild on the D902-K to expand Kubota’s lineup of electronically controlled small engines using the unique TVCR combustion system

September 26, 2022
Kubota Company

Kubota Corporation (Headquarters: Naniwa-ku, Osaka, Japan; President and Managing Director: Yuichi Kitao; hereinafter, “Kubota”) developed the D1105-K electronically controlled small industrial diesel engine (displacement 1.123 L; ci -after “D1105-K”) as a power source that complies with the latest European, American and Chinese emission regulations. The engine adopts Kubota’s unique TVCR combustion system to achieve both greater fuel efficiency and a compact size that makes it easy to operate as a replacement for conventional Kubota engines. Kubota will contribute to a carbon-neutral society by developing a range of engines capable of reducing CO emissions2 emissions.


1. Context and development objectives

  • Kubota has met the diverse needs of construction and industrial machinery manufacturers around the world, including compliance with the latest emission regulations in each country. These efforts have earned the company the world’s leading market share*1 in diesel engines under 100 horsepower for industrial use.

  • Stricter emissions regulations, not only in Europe but also in the rest of the world, are currently driving decarbonization needs. Electronic engine control fine-tunes fuel injection for better fuel efficiency than conventional mechanical engines, which should reduce CO2 emissions and make the exhaust gases cleaner. For these reasons, Kubota has endeavored to expand its line of electronically controlled small engines.

  • However, replacing a mechanical motor with an electronically controlled motor usually requires many other components for the electronic control. These additional parts require more space to mount the motor, which can lead to a large number of main machine design changes.

  • The D1105-K benefits from an electronic control system optimized specifically for small engines alongside the TVCR combustion system that combines Kubota’s unique combustion and fuel technologies.

  • The D1105-K is equipped with the TVCR combustion system, which combines our original combustion system with unique electronic control technology developed specifically for small engines.

  • The development kept the same size as a mechanical engine with equivalent power while achieving an electronically controlled engine with great fuel efficiency and exhaust gases so clean that there is no visible black smoke.

  • In addition to complying with worldwide emission regulations, the D1105-K complies with China’s most stringent national smoke regulations, Category Ⅲ. Additionally, manufacturers can directly mount the ECU*3 to the motor to reduce the load on the machine design when replacing the motor, which should reduce development time.

  • Kubota will contribute to the realization of a carbon-neutral society by strengthening its lineup of not only large electronically controlled engines already underway, but also small electronically controlled diesel engines.

  1. *1.Based on internal research (2020 Power Systems research 〔PSR〕 Survey)
  2. *2.Regulations in China on black smoke emissions from off-road vehicles
  3. *3.The Electronic Control Unit (ECU): an electronic device to optimally control fuel consumption, fuel injection pressure, timing and cycle according to operating conditions


2. Features


[1] Remove black smoke

The D1105-K eliminates visible black smoke emissions often produced when starting, accelerating or suddenly applying a load to an engine. This new engine complies with the strictest Chinese national smoke regulations, category Ⅲ.


[2] Low fuel consumption

The D1105-K is equipped with the TVCR combustion system, which combines our original combustion system with unique electronic control technology developed specifically for small engines.
These innovative technologies improve fuel consumption by around 5% compared to conventional models.


[3] Acquire engine running data, improve drivability and work efficiency

Electronic control allows CAN to be used*4 communication protocol, which can control engine rotation and torque through signals sent from vehicles. The CAN also collects engine drive data needed for telematics technology. This data improves drivability and operational efficiency by aggregating torque characteristics that mechanical control cannot achieve to reduce rotational speed under sudden load.


[4] Improved compatibility

Manufacturers can easily replace conventional mechanical engines with the D1105-K as specifications, such as exterior dimensions as well as intake and exhaust and PTO position, remain the same. It can also reduce the extra work placed on the design of the main machine usually required to install an engine with an electronic control unit, such as the design of the installation position and harnesses, as the ECU is mounted directly on the engine.


[5] Improved serviceability

Using a large oil pan extends the period between essential regular oil changes up to 500 hours.*5. Improved serviceability reduces the time needed to service the engine.

Citroën’s flagship crossover gets design updates, a new touchscreen and a higher price.

Citroën’s flagship for India, the C5 Aircross, is a unique and tasty take on the premium 5-seat crossover segment, competing with the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and Volkswagen Tiguan. For 2022, the C5 gets a facelift with refreshed styling and an all-new touchscreen among other new features. Priced at Rs 36.67 lakh, not only is it Rs 4.77 lakh more expensive than its launch price in April 2021, but it is also the most expensive car in its class.

Still one of the most unique and stylish crossovers out there.

This updated version comes in a fully equipped Shine variant, powered by a diesel engine mated to an automatic gearbox, which sends power to the front wheels.

Citroën C5 Aircross facelift: exterior changes

Like the pre-facelift version, the refreshed model carries an unmistakable style unlike anything out there due to its cleverly executed, distinct and characterful design elements. This facelifted C5 proudly displays its oversized brand identity on its nose; the double chevron logo is larger than before and now sports a new look, with each of the chevrons finished in black with a chrome outline. Its grille features two parallel lines of chrome studs that blend tastefully into the two LED daytime running lights, which are now positioned in the headlight cluster. Gone is the split headlight configuration, which gives way to a single unit. But this new design is far from conventional, as on closer inspection you’ll notice a unique layered case that’s both quirky and cool. The air dam below is also redesigned and is highlighted by a shiny silver finished chin. Replacing the red highlights around the repositioned faux air vents and around the trapezoidal element on the side body cladding are gray highlights with all but the white body paint option; with the latter, these reflections are blue.

Silver highlights replace reds on the outgoing version. These are painted blue on the white C5s.

The concave, flat hood has been retained, which, along with the distinct body cladding, roof rails and upright stance, gives it some much-needed SUV credibility. New 18-inch alloys finished in a two-tone hue complement its styling, while the distinctive silver C-shaped window surround adds just the right amount of bling to its side profile. Changes at the rear are limited to the taillights, which retain their basic silhouette but, like the front, feature a layered housing and receive attractive new LED elements inside.

Redesign of the Citroën C5 Aircross: interior and features

Citroën’s unconventional design theme continues inside and while it largely retains most of the elements, it’s the central area of ​​the dashboard that gets the biggest change. A new horizontally oriented 10-inch standalone touchscreen is one of the talking points of this facelift. It looks rather premium with a crisp, clear display, and is noticeably better than the outgoing dated screen. Responses are a bit slow, however, and Citroën hasn’t used the opportunity to include wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (it gets a wired setup), or a nicer branded sound system. Luckily, Citroën has retained hotkeys to access various infotainment menus, a physical volume knob, as well as physical toggle switches below to control some key functions.

The biggest talking point is the new touchscreen which has richer graphics and a very premium look

Citroën has also corrected the orientation of switches and buttons on the center console to make it more suitable for right-handed drivers and it looks clutter-free, thanks to the gear lever which is now replaced by a rocker-mounted drive selector. Oddly enough, you can’t directly switch the drive selector from ‘P’ to ‘R’, and it defaults to ‘N’. The large rotary traction mode selector and drive mode buttons have now been combined into a single switch below the gear selector, so you can switch between Sport, Eco and Normal drive modes, as well as the Snow, Mud and Sand traction modes, using the same controller.

Gear selector placement is now better suited to right-hand drive orientation.

The C5 retains its large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and as before it’s easy on the eyes, but it’s not half as exciting in its operation or functionality. The front seats have been reupholstered and are quite comfortable, with the driver’s seat being electrically adjustable. However, some might find the lumbar support a bit excessive. Comfort features such as front seat ventilation, seat memory and a 360-degree camera are expected in a car of this price, but are still missing from the equipment list.

The seats are very comfortable, although some might find the lower back a little excessive.

There’s plenty of space in the back, and the panoramic sunroof also helps flood the cabin with light. The C5 continues with the three-seat configuration, which can be slid forward or backward separately, or reclined individually. And while this configuration is adequate to accommodate three adults in reasonable comfort, when there are only two adults seated they will lack a center armrest, the contoured seats will not allow them to stretch out and sit down. comfortably, and the seat belt buckles might feel a bit intrusive. As a result, that back-seat experience isn’t as good as a conventional bench seat, which might make it a deal breaker for some. What’s nice is the huge 580-litre boot – it houses a full-size spare tire with an alloy wheel, which is rare these days, and the tailgate is also electronically controlled.

Three individual seats not the most comfortable when carrying two adults.

Redesign of the Citroën C5 Aircross: performance and fuel consumption

With no petrol engine or all-wheel-drive option, Citroën reduced the appeal of the C5. On the other hand, that 2.0-liter 177hp diesel engine and 8-speed automatic transmission are among the nicest and smoothest on the market.

One of the smoothest motors on the market; it’s fast too.

The engine is responsive and revs up quickly, with the torque converter automatically sending power to the front wheels. The 8-speed is so intuitive you’ll rarely need to pull the Ferrari-like column-mounted paddle shifters to take manual control. Bottom-out performance is also impressive, and it accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 9.61 seconds, and it also records equally impressive acceleration times.

Performance of the Citroën C5
Acceleration (km/h)
0-20 1.00s
0-40 2.33s
0-60 4.11s
0-80 6.65s
0-100 9.61s
Kickdown acceleration (km/h)
20-80 5.89s
40-100 7.71s

The automatic engine stop-start feature, however, may surprise you, shutting off the engine (and therefore tightening the power steering) before the car has even come to a complete stop. That quirk aside, it ignites the engine instantly when you release the brake pedal, and the process is smooth, so you wouldn’t mind leaving it on to save fuel when idling.

Speaking of which, in our tests it managed a fuel mileage of 10.3 kpl in the city and 12.6 kpl on the highway. However, you can expect better efficiency while maintaining consistent highway speeds, thanks to the long-legged capability of its 8-speed.

Driving and traction modes, now linked.

Citroën offers three driving modes – Sport, Normal and Eco – but the difference between them is barely noticeable. It also gets traction modes like before – Snow, Mud and Sand, which tweak its ESP and traction control settings – but we didn’t get a chance to put them to the test.

Redesign of the Citroën C5 Aircross: ride and handling

What we experienced was the refinement of the C5 Aircross, which is remarkable. Citroën has improved cabin insulation with its double-glazed windscreen and front windows, which protect occupants from ambient and engine noise. In fact, you should try very hard to hear any diesel clatter from the engine inside, even if it makes quite a racket outside.

The ride quality is simply exceptional thanks to its hydraulic stops.

But the highlight of the C5 Aircross remains its “progressive hydraulic cushions”, which are essentially hydraulic chambers that replace traditional bump stops. At the front, there are two hydraulic chambers on either side of the shock absorber, one for compression and the other for rebound, while there is only one for compression at the back. The result of this incredibly clever setup is a bump-free ride from the road, even over the sharpest potholes. Its ride comfort and shock absorption capacity are unequivocally the best on the market. The steering is effortless and the suspension is soft, but you can still drive it quickly through corners with a degree of confidence. However, it’s best enjoyed when driven at six or seven tenths, and it doesn’t offer a sporty ride like the Jeep Compass or Volkswagen Tiguan.

Redesign of the Citroën C5 Aircross: verdict

The Citroën C5 Aircross is a refined crossover with exceptional shock absorption capabilities that unequivocally make it the most capable car. A smooth high-performance engine, smooth automatic transmission and effortless steering are some of its other highlights. And if you want to stand out amid a sea of ​​SUVs and crossovers on sale, this is the one for you.

But in its quest to be different, certain quirks, particularly the layout of the individual rear seats, could potentially be a deal breaker, as it isn’t as comfortable as a conventional bench seat to accommodate two adults. Further limiting its appeal is the fact that its rivals not only offer multiple engine transmission options and all-wheel-drive capabilities, but they’re also better equipped and, more importantly, significantly less expensive. For these reasons, the Citroën C5 Aircross is likely to remain a rarity on our roads, which is a shame, because it is a real good crossover, which requires experience to be appreciated.

Volvo’s entry-level offering in India is getting a boost, albeit an incremental one. We tell you how it is.

Volvo has just launched the XC40 facelift in India at Rs 43.20 lakh (limited time). This mid-life update brought a new mild-hybrid powertrain and updated styling, among other changes. We take it out for a spin and tell you what the Volvo XC40 facelift looks like.

Volvo XC40 facelift: exterior changes

Volvo has given the XC40 a sharper look this time around, with more angular headlights that retain the ‘Thor’s Hammer’ LED daytime running lights and a new bumper with gloss black finished triangular fog light housings. The rest of the elements remain unchanged at the front, so it continues to have a large glossy black grille with the Volvo logo in chrome and the clamshell bonnet design.

The XC40 facelift gets a new front bumper and the headlights are now more angular.

On the side, the XC40 facelift gained a new design for the alloy wheels. However, the five-spoke silver alloys look fairly plain compared to the pre-facelift car’s diamond-cut two-tone design. Volvo also opted to ditch the two-tone paint scheme, with the roof now in body color. Interestingly though, the XC40 facelift gets black mirrors and roof rails.

The new design of the 18-inch alloys looks quite simple.

Changes to the rear are very minimal and will take a keen eye to notice. Gone is the tailgate’s T4 badge and comes the new B4 badge, signifying its powertrain. The other minor change is that the rear skid plate is now finished in black, instead of silver on the older model.

Overall, this can be categorized as a subtle update instead of a full facelift. While the sharper design keeps it up-to-date with new rivals, we can’t help but think the sporty, outgoing R-Design variant looked much better as an overall package.

Volvo XC40 facelift: interior and features

Just like the exterior, the interior of the XC40 receives only minor changes. The cabin has a minimalist design and is made of high-quality materials, as you would expect from a Volvo. The XC40 facelift features a new open-pore wood inlay on the dash and door cards, which helps to enhance the ambience and gloss black detailing around the air vents, touchscreen and center console look neat. The car we tested comes with an all-black interior theme, but buyers can opt for a beige theme as well.

The 9-inch touchscreen is now powered by an Android-based system.

The chunky leather-wrapped steering wheel is unchanged from the previous model, which isn’t a bad thing, but surprisingly it lacks the paddle shifters. Meanwhile, the 9-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen now uses an Android-based system and integrates Google services. The infotainment system is smooth in operation, but it can get confusing and take a while to figure out.

The unique crystal shifter looks elegant.

Also, the HVAC controls are still located on the touchscreen, and while they’re easy to find, they’re just not as convenient as the physical buttons. Volvo also took the opportunity to update the graphics on the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and the only other noticeable change inside is the new crystal shifter.

The front seats are excellent in terms of support and cushioning and offer plenty of power adjustment. The driver’s seat also benefits from a memory function, but it lacks heated and ventilated seats, which would have been nice.

The front seats are comfortable and supportive; there are also plenty of tweaks on offer.

In the back, there’s plenty of space and the seats are comfortable too, but the backrest is a little too upright. The all-black theme can also make you feel hemmed in, but the large panoramic sunroof does a lot to mitigate that. Plus, the XC40’s trunk has a flat floor and can easily gobble up luggage for a weekend getaway.

The backrest of the rear seat remains a little too straight on the XC40.

As for features, the XC40 facelift gets a PM 2.5 air cleaner, leather upholstery, power tailgate, LED lighting, connected car technology, Apple CarPlay, Harman Kardon audio system at 14 600W speakers, wireless charging and a tire pressure monitoring system.

As Volvo, the XC40 facelift gets a wide range of safety equipment, including some ADAS features. The equipment list includes 7 airbags, front and rear parking sensors, rear camera, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation assist, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitor, hill start assist and hill descent control. Although the XC40’s ADAS features work well, there are only limited places you can use them.

Volvo XC40 facelift: engine and performance

Perhaps the biggest change to the Volvo XC40 took place under the hood. The engine is the same 2.0-liter T4 turbo-petrol four-cylinder that served on the outgoing model, but on this facelift it gained a 48V mild-hybrid system, which impacts the experience of conduct. At idle, the four-pot engine remains a refined unit, with barely any sound or vibration filtering into the cabin.

The 2.0-liter gasoline engine gained 7 hp with the mild hybrid system.

In terms of power, the engine has gained only 7hp (197hp), while the torque remains the same as before at 300Nm. However, this B4 mild hybrid feels more responsive than the outgoing T4 version. You can feel the hybrid system’s assist when accelerating and it has helped improve off-the-line response as well. The engine pulls cleanly all the way to redline and is pretty linear in its delivery as well.

Along with the performance boost, the mild-hybrid system should also improve the XC40’s fuel efficiency. However, Volvo has yet to reveal an official figure and we have yet to test it on our fuel efficiency cycle.

The mild hybrid system improved engine response.

Power is sent to the front wheels only via an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. While the gearbox is sufficiently seamless in its operation, it’s not the fastest to respond. However, the responsive engine helps mask some of the box’s shortcomings. There’s also a manual mode for the gearbox, operated via the crystal shifter, but that doesn’t feel very engaging.

Volvo XC40 facelift: ride and handling

In terms of ride, the XC40 facelift impresses with its stability at high speeds, but the ride is a bit firm at low speeds on rough roads. But it’s never uncomfortable because the jolts rarely filter inside and the cabin is well insulated from the outside world.

The XC40’s high-speed manners remain impressive.

The XC40 facelift isn’t a BMW X1 when it comes to handling, but it feels confident in the corners. Body roll is well contained, steering is consistent and there’s good grip too. There are also two modes for the steering, and while they help increase weight, they don’t add much in the way of feedback.

Volvo XC40 facelift: price and verdict

The Volvo XC40 facelift is available in a single fully loaded variant priced at Rs 43.20 lakh (introduction, ex-showroom, India). And although it will be increased to Rs 45.90 lakh (Rs 1.40 lakh more than the outgoing XC40 T4) after the launch period, its price will be on par with rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 (Rs 44.90 lakh) and the recently introduced Audi Q3 Premium Plus (Rs 44.89 lakh).

Where it lags is rear seat comfort and its service network isn’t as extensive as its German rivals. Beyond that, the Volvo XC40 remains a handsome SUV with safe and predictable handling and the step-by-step facelift changes only add to an already impressive package. Plus, the mild-hybrid system makes it even more drivable and will also help with efficiency.

So, in conclusion, if you’re looking for a comfortable and well-equipped luxury crossover, this one is definitely worth a look.

German engine Manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions (MAN ES) continues to develop methanol-compatible engines for the marine industry to meet the growing demand for methanol as one of the marine fuels of the future.

The company obtained a type approval certificate for its four-stroke engine 32/44CR DNV medium speed marine engine.

“The maritime industry needs everyone on deck as we work to decarbonise and DNV is proud to be associated with great partners like MAN who are driving the transition,” DNV said on the occasion.

The engine uses electronic fuel injection, high-output turbochargers, electronic hardware and variable valve timing, resulting in low emissions, high efficiency and high specific power, according to its developer. MAN said earlier that it plans to make solutions available for using methanol in four-stroke engines from 2024.

Four-stroke engines mainly equip container ships, ferries, fishing or cruise ships, as well as offshore solutions.

MAN has been chosen to supply eight dual-fuel methanol engines for Maersk’s new container ships and these will be the largest methanol combustion engines ever built.

The B&W 8G95ME engines with Liquid Gas Methanol Injection (LGIM) will be based on their 50-bore counterpart, which has accumulated more than 100,000 hours of methanol running time.

It is a two-stroke, dual-fuel engine that can run on methanol as well as conventional fuels. In the future, MAN plans to allow them to burn bio-methanol as well as e-methanol.

Methanol generates less NOx emissions and no SOx or soot emissions during combustion. It is much easier to handle than gaseous fuels and less hazardous to aquatic organisms than marine gas oil or heavy fuel oil. According to MAN, the main challenges lie in the fuel system and injection technology as well as in the optimization of combustion.

MAN Energy Solutions also presented the launch of its engine type MAN 49/60DF at the SMM fair in Hamburg. The dual-fuel four-stroke engine is capable of running on LNG, diesel and HFO as well as biofuel blends and synthetic natural gas.

Start the revenge engine

The only thing more iconic than a Ghost Rider is their signature vehicle. For Robbie Reyes, it’s a black muscle car possessed by the spirit of Elias Morrow that transforms from a sleek antique to a Hellfire-powered Engine of Vengeance. The Marvel Legends 6-inch scale Revenge Engine comes with a total of 18 parts to convert the car between two modes – street mode and Hellfire mode. Inspired by Robbie Reyes’ car that can explode into Hellfire flames, the vehicle features 20 LEDs and 7 accessories designed to make the car look like it’s crackling with the flames of revenge.

Street fashion

The Street Mode version of the vehicle is a classic black muscle car inspired by the All-new Ghost Rider comics. It comes with a classic silver supercharged engine that snaps into the car’s hood, plus four standard vinyl tires for realistic texture. These parts are used without LED effects and can be removed and replaced with illuminated Hellfire parts.

Hellfire Mode

Comes with 11 translucent Hellfire accessories designed to transform the vehicle into a true revenge engine. Includes four translucent orange Hellfire tires and four Fire Rim accessories designed to make the wheels look like they have flames coming out of them. Two pieces of exhaust flame can be plugged into the exhaust outlets for more flame effects. When you attach the flaming Hellfire engine to the hood of the car and press down on it, the LEDs are activated for fire-inspired lights. The 11 translucent Hellfire accessories glow when the LEDs light up to make the car look like it’s fueled by the flames of Eli’s Spirit. The LEDs flash and pulse to look like a crackling fire. Tap the Hellfire Engine to cycle through different light sequences and boost your showcase.

beyond hell

In addition to the Hellfire accessory parts, there are other glowing sections to give the Engine of Vengeance a supernatural look. There’s an LED light behind the driver’s seat headrest that lights up behind Ghost Rider’s head, making the flames coming out of his skull look like they’re on fire when he’s inside. the car. The car’s grille and taillights also glow with LEDs for a total of 20 LEDs throughout the vehicle. Engage the Hellfire Engine to turn on all the lights. (Requires 3 AA batteries. Not included.)

Driver and passenger side doors open and close to accommodate a 6-inch figure in each seat. The passenger seat is also removable to place a 6-inch figure in the backseat. The car can hold three standard 6-inch Marvel Legends figures at a time. We meticulously added as many design details as possible, including an opening trunk door to hold Ghost Rider accessories inside, rolling wheels, and front wheels that can be manually turned to position the car in different ways, and a hinged skull shifter. The Engine of Vengeance vehicle has molded details on the bottom of the car and a shiny finish.

Hell on wheels

For additional display capabilities, the Engine of Vengeance comes with two Brimstone Risers – unique smoke-themed ramps that fit under either front or both rear tires. Risers can be placed under the tires to make it look like smoke is coming from the burning wheels. They also function as ramps under the front tires to land the car as if it’s about to take off, inspired by the car’s supernatural abilities in the comics.

Robbie Reyes: A New Ghost Rider

As a teenager living in East Los Angeles caring for his disabled brother, the course of Robbie Reyes’ future was changed forever after he took part in a street race using a muscle car, which , unbeknownst to Robbie, was linked to an evil spirit. This fateful decision led to him being killed as collateral in a gang war and waking up imbued with the spirit of Eli Morrow. Robbie is then set on a path to fight for more than revenge, but justice – and to fight Eli for his soul along the way.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center Propulsion Branch, based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, has more than 600 employees who manage more than 22,000 engines, including this program. Management launched the program in 2016 by awarding contracts to General Electric Aviation and Pratt & Whitney.

“This is the culmination of more than a decade of methodical risk reduction and testing that GE has performed with the Air Force on three different adaptive cycle engine programs,” said David Tweedie. , vice president and general manager of GE Edison Works for advanced products. statement this week.

The company is ready to move into engineering and manufacturing “and get this engine in the field with the F-35 before the end of this decade,” Tweedie added.

“This engine is not a concept, a proposal or a research program,” he said.

Preliminary and second-round testing of what GE says is the world’s first three-flow adaptive-cycle engine of flight weight took place at GE’s Evendale plant last year and this year.

The engine would give the F-35 30% more range, over 20% faster acceleration, with increased thrust and fuel efficiency, GE said.

The soon to be renamed GE Aerospace is a big employer in southwestern Ohio. Before the pandemic, the company had about 1,500 employees working at four Dayton-area facilities, sites that saw a total annual investment of $1 billion. About 9,000 Ohioans work for the company in total.

Ram Unplugs EcoDiesel Engine For Half-Ton Pickup https://newac.eu/ram-unplugs-ecodiesel-engine-for-half-ton-pickup/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 20:37:30 +0000 https://newac.eu/ram-unplugs-ecodiesel-engine-for-half-ton-pickup/ Content of the article We apologize, but this video failed to load. The Oil Will Be Leaving Soon: Ram Unplugs EcoDiesel Engine For Half-Ton Pickup Back to video “Our Ram EcoDiesel V6 engine thrilled consumers with the highest half-ton diesel torque and towing capability while being the first to exceed 1,000 miles of range,” said […]]]>

Content of the article

“Our Ram EcoDiesel V6 engine thrilled consumers with the highest half-ton diesel torque and towing capability while being the first to exceed 1,000 miles of range,” said Mike Koval Jr., CEO of the Ram brand at Stellantis in a prepared statement. “As we rapidly pivot into an electrified future, we wanted to celebrate this final EcoDiesel milestone by giving our loyal light-duty diesel enthusiasts one last chance to order the truck they love.”

Content of the article

Ram introduced the EcoDiesel in its light-duty pickup in 2014. Back then, it was good for 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. After a redesign about six years later, output increased to 260 ponies and 480 lb-ft of twist. Those latest numbers topped Ford’s Power Stroke by half a ton, though they fell short of the recently revamped 3.0L Duramax for GM light trucks and their SUV brethren. This mill is now good for 305 horsepower and nearly 500 torque.

Whether Ram’s engineers have decided to ditch that particular hunt or just want to focus their efforts on electrification is up for debate. After all, there’s a finite amount of money for research and development, even at a huge company like Stellantis, so perhaps officials have decided to channel their strengths into electron-driven powertrains. Ram previously announced plans to offer a 1,500 battery electric vehicle (BEV) pickup truck in 2024, a full portfolio of electrified solutions in the majority of its segments by 2025 and in all segments by 2030.

The second-generation (post-2020) EcoDiesel was a significantly better effort than Ram’s initial kick on the lightweight oil can. Not only did it produce more power, but it also boasted competitive towing capability, a trait often cited by diesel buyers for considering this powertrain in the first place. While the claimed maximum range of 1,000 miles (1,600 km) seems hardly believable, it was theoretically possible in a 4×2 variant when fitted with the 125-litre fuel tank. Bladder breaking, indeed.

Production of the 2023 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will end in January 2023. For now, Ram is making the EcoDiesel available in 4×4 crew-cab models on several trim levels, with order books open now.
