Both United States versions will be powered by a 2.9-litre V6 engine that uses a conventional, exhaust-driven turbocharger and an electric compressor to deliver 450bhp and 442 pound-feet of torque, coupled with four wheels, and an eight-speed automatic transmission linked to steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
The two main types are the exhaust-driven turbocharger and the mechanically driven supercharger.
The mechanically driven supercharger supplies the combustion chambers up to engine speeds of 2400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger reaches full effectiveness and provides extra boost in the higher revs.
The mechanically-driven supercharger supplies the combustion chambers up to engine speeds of 2,400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger reaches full-effectiveness and provides extra boost in the higher rev range.
The supercharger is a mechanically driven pump that forces air into the engine, which on this engine runs on its own until you get to 2,400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger joins in, to deliver more power until 3,500rpm when the supercharger disconnects and the turbo carries on alone.
The belt-driven supercharger operates at low engine speeds, with the exhaust-driven turbocharger coming in as the engine speed increases.
