Wuling Almaz: Drive Unlimited Way with a Powerful 1.5 Turbocharged Engine
8 May, 2019
“Drive Unlimited Way” or Drive Without Limits. The tagline carried by Wuling Almaz when it was first launched was not without reason. This tagline illustrates that Almaz is produced by paying attention to every detail, both the car engine and the multimedia features in the cabin to be ready to take you without limit in each of your adventures.
Powerful 1.5 Turbocharged Engine Machine
Talking about driving in the automotive context is definitely identical to the engine attached to the car. In Wuling Almaz, one of the engine parts that supports Almaz to give you the best driving sensation is a 4 cylinder engine with a 1,500 cc turbocharged capacity produced by Honeywell.
This engine produces 140 hp output at 5,200 rpm, and 250 Nm of torque at 1,600-3,600 rpm. The working system of the turbo engine on Wuling Almaz is utilizing energy from the engine combustion which is then used to rotate the turbine. After turning, the turbine will then rotate the compressor side of the turbo. This way of working makes Wuling Almaz the biggest torque car in its class.
In addition, you need to know, that the engine applied to Wuling Almaz is able to produce more energy with the same amount of fuel as that used on non-turbo engines, and in Indonesia, a machine like this has just been used in Wuling Almaz. Plus, to ensure it works well, this machine has been tested for 10,000 hours bench test and 300,000 kilometers lifetime test.
Transmisi CVT 8
Power from this engine is channeled to the front drive wheels via a CVT transmission. CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission used on Almaz uses technology from Bosch. CVT is an automatic transmission that is able to change the ratio continuously throughout the range of its ratio. This makes cars with CVT technology different from AT and MT technology cars which only have a number of predetermined ratio choices.
Not only that, the advantages of Wuling Almaz CVT are the 8-speed manual mode. This means there are 8 sets of ratio numbers stored electronically. When the driver chooses the manual mode, they can choose the ratio used from the 8 sets of ratios stored. In addition, there are also two driving modes, namely Eco (E) and Sport (S). This series makes Almaz the best driving sensation for you.
