Engine Mitsubishi 6G75 under the hood

Engine Mitsubishi 6G75

The 6g75 engine is another good power unit from Mitsubishi. This is the largest unit of the Cyclone family, which began production in 2003 and is still installed on the cars of the Japanese concern. For a 3.8 liter engine, the 6g75 is quite economical, consuming just over 13 liters of fuel on the combined cycle. It is the newest in the series, therefore it has been significantly improved in comparison with its predecessors (for example, it received forged connecting rods).

The design of the motor does not differ from its predecessors: a V-shaped “six” with a camber of 60 degrees, a cast-iron block and an aluminum cylinder head, with a working volume of 3828 “cubes”. There are 3 modifications: with a conventional injector, with a proprietary MIVEC system (variable valve timing with adjustable valve height) and direct injection GDI. Depending on this, the motor power, compression (9.5-10.5) and other parameters changed.
