BIG DIESEL FOR TERRANO
TEXT / MIKHAIL GZOVSKY
Statistics of recent years claims that Europeans are ready to almost abandon gasoline engines in favor of diesel engines soon. First of all, of course, this applies to long-time off-road vehicles with excellent appetite: more than 90% of all-wheel drive cars in Europe operate on diesel fuel. Having caught this trend, Nissan prepared a new diesel engine for one of the most popular Terrano II off-road vehicles, and at the same time modified the 1996 model car.
From now on, under the hood you can see not only a 2.7-liter turbodiesel and 92 kW / 125 hp, but also a 3-liter engine from the Nissan-Patrol GR. In this 154-horsepower engine, Nissan collected all the best that the company has developed over the past few years: the M-Fire combustion optimization system, direct injection of common rail fuel, two camshafts and four valves per cylinder.
