    Is inline six engine the new V8?

    Noticed even M4 in BMW comes in six cylinder now and most sporty sedans are getting harder to find in V8....infact the supercars which used to come in V10 or V12 are nowadays in V8 with twin-turbochargers.



    There was a time when BMW m5 was a v10 but nowadays all performance sedans come in mostly inline 6


    So is inline six the new V8?

    Or are there still a lot of sports cars 2020 onwards that still come in v8?

    Straight 6 is perfectly balanced and runs smoother.

    Turbocharged I6 or V6 will generally make more torque than a naturally aspirated V8... same peak HP with a fatter powerband. Just doesn't sound as good usually and less throttle response

    In all Asian countries, there is a road and license tax that is based on the size of the engine. This tax needs to paid yearly and its expensive. A 3.0 Liter would cost you about 1k a year on average and a 5.0 liter would cost you over 2k.

    This factors heavily when automakers are deciding what type of engines to develop.

    A w204 C63 would cost 3k a year in taxes.

    I think another reason most makers use the Inline6 is cause its shape is easier to fit turbos and a hybrid system. If it was a V6 maybe the engine would be too wide?

    Audi's inline 5 is also pretty awesome, I hope to see that in more small sports cars. I'd just about kill for a manual mid-engine inline 5 track car.

    I feel like Americans will never stop making V8s. Dodge will keep churning them out till 2022 at least. Ford doesn't have much outside their mustang. Chevy has gone full cuck though.

    If you would of asked me last year if I though the V8 would ever go away... Not a chance... its an American icon!! A staple in the U.S. Auto industry

    But since Herbert the Pervert Biden & KamelToe Harras seemingly want to dismantle what is the U.S. and sell it into slavery to China... who fkn knows

    Turbocharged I6 or V6 will generally make more torque than a naturally aspirated V8... same peak HP with a fatter powerband. Just doesn't sound as good usually and less throttle response
    And a turbo v8 will blow away a turbo 6. That’s a dumb statement

    The old Chevy TrailBlazers had an inline. 6. I had one and really enjoyed it.

    That motor was built like a tank. You still see tons of Trailblazers driving around

    I think the point was it's not likely you'll see many factory turbo V8s (and less N/A V8s) in the near future.

    There are cylinder and displacement restrictions outside of the US, we need to be able to sell cars to anyone.

    Being stubborn is not economically viable.

    Hybrid inline engines could easily provide all the power and torque you could ever want while going dead silent.

    People that are sad about the number of cylinders not being 8 are going bring about a world where that number goes to 0.

    Auto manufacturers are replacing N/A V8s with Turbo 6s generally, not Turbo V8s. AMG is the only exception off the top of my head.

    So in the comparison of N/A V8 vs. its equivalent replacement (most people have a finite amount of resources, after all) being the boosted 6... the boosted 6 indeed has more torque. A boosted V8 will cost you more and there really aren't that many modern cars that have boosted V8s (AMG E63, BMW M5, etc)

    BMW x5 50I and M also has a boosted v8.
    Cadillac CTS-V has a 6.2l supercharged v8


    I'm sure there's more but that's just off the top of my head. These engines aren't going anywhere but you're going to only see them on 100k+ cars soon.

    That's kinda weird generalization to make. What makes you think that's a new trend? BMW has had I6 for years. Most others use V configuration.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit softly.
