Enhancement in Engine Power:
IMC has not only worked on the aesthetics but also the mechanicals of upcoming Revo 2021. As per reports, the company has enhanced the power of 2.8L 1GD engine with improvements in the Turbocharger, structural improvement of Cylinder Block, Electronically Controlled Common Rail Inject and Exhaust. These improvements have increased the engine power by 20KW (Approx over 201hp) and 50Nm torque, as the car’s peak torque is 500Nm.
These improvements will also increase the fuel efficiency by 4% in the new Revo.
Other Salient Improvements in Specs:
The company has also introduced other salient improvements in new Revo specs, which are:
- Variable Flow Control (VFC) Power Steering
- Speed Auto-Lock
- 12v Acc Connector
VFC will provide better steering response at lower speed. At high speeds, VFC will allow steering to be heavier for safety.
VFC advantages can be explained in 3 conditions.
1- Low Speed (0～40kph): Lighter steering effort is achieved for easy operation in parking & city driving.
2- Mid Speed (40～80kph): Steering effort will smoothly change to match vehicle speed.
3- High Speed (more than 80kph): Steering effort will become firmer feel when cornering or highway traveling.
The changes mentioned above are some of the many, and our sources have said that there would be more upgrades.
