The Tata Hexa with Kryotec engine is reported to launch by the end of 2019.
Tata Hexa, the flagship SUV from the home-grown carmaker, entered our market in January 2017. Based on the Aria platform, the SUV initially received overwhelming response from buyers. However, its market started to crease within few months after its launch. Currently, the Tata Hexa comes with a 2.2L Varicor diesel engine that’s tuned for generating two different power outputs – 148bhp with 320Nm and 154bhp with 400Nm. It’s the same powertrain that does duty to the Tata Safari Strome. Read – Tata Nexon, Tiago & Tigor To Get Expensive
According to a latest media report, Tata might introduce its new 2.0L, four-cylinder Kryotec diesel engine that will debut on the upcoming Tata Harrier. The Tata Hexa with Kryotec engine is reported to launch by the end of 2019. Inspired by the Cryogenic rocket engine, this BS6-ready oil burner makes power worth 138bhp (140PS) and 350Nm of torque.
The company will use the same diesel engine for the Harrier’s 7-seater version. Though, it will be tuned for developing higher power output – 170bhp. The new Kryotec diesel motor uses liquid hydrogen as an oxidizer that results less carbon footprints.
Built on low friction valve train architecture, the diesel motor comes fitted with advanced EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) that not only makes it compliant to emission norms, but improves its fuel efficiency as well. Read – Tata Aquilla Could Be The Name For 45X Concept Based Hatchback
