Toyota Trucks Turbochargers
Toyota cars were first manufactured in 1936. Today, Toyota is the largest of the top three automobile manufactures by production, followed by the VW group and General Motors. In July 2014, its 200-millionth car was produced. Many people believe in Toyota Motor Corporation’s products. When test-driving a Toyota car or truck, people want to know what the car of truck’s power output is. Toyota trucks are used for heavy-duty work where a truck has to have power, but fuel efficiency has to be taken in to consideration.
Most trucks are fitted with diesel engines equipped with turbochargers to produce higher power outputs, with lower emission level and improved efficiency for an engine with the similar capacity of engine. The last car by Toyota that was fitted with a Toyota Turbocharger was the Toyota Supra sports/GT coupe. This car was introduced to North America in 1993 but withdrawn in 1998. Toyota did sell turbocharged 4-cyl.Toyota trucks from 1985-1986 and the turbocharged MRs-sport car from 1991-1995. The newest turbo offer to US markets is the 2015 Lexus NX 200 compact CUV.
There are many reasons why people want to purchase a vehicle with a turbocharged engine, but it is always good to check out the positives and the negatives when deciding. The pros of having a Toyota turbo engine (truck or car) are: a significant increase in horsepower since turbochargers allows small engines displacements to produce more power relative to size, better fuel economy since a smaller engine uses less fuel when idling and have less reciprocating mass that results in better fuel economy, and higher efficiency of the engine.
The cons of having a turbocharged engine include turbo lag that often occurs due to the large turbochargers that takes time to spool up to provide a useful boost. Another downside of a turbo engine is the boost threshold because traditional turbochargers are often sized for a certain RPM range where the exhaust gas flow adequately to provide additional boost for the engine and cannot operate across a wide range of RPM like supercharges do.
The oil requirements are more with an engine that is turbocharged due to the fact that the turbochargers heats up and often uses more oil and power surges that is caused by the boost threshold that is reached and that causes a power surge and could have a compromising effect on the tire traction and instability of the car.
