When you are shopping for a new vehicle you might run across a bunch of automotive jargon that doesn’t mean much to you. It can be difficult to sift through these terms to figure out exactly what they are talking about. Today we’re aiming to help with that by taking a look at one feature in particular, the biturbo engine. This is available on select Mercedes-Benz vehicles, but what does it mean?
How do you pronounce “biturbo”?
A biturbo engine refers to a turbocharged engine where two turbochargers compress the intake charge. This is also known as parallel twin-turbos. Mercedes-Benz biturbo engines specifically use two identical turbochargers, one on each side of the manifold. They are positioned in this way to get as much as 20 PSI through the engine. Each turbocharger is connected to the three cylinders on its respective side of the engine. Everything works together to create boost faster and more efficiently. Biturbo engine systems are more efficient and are less stressful for the engines themselves to perform.
Fun Facts About Biturbo Engines
When you are driving a vehicle with a biturbo engine, it won’t really notice a difference when you are driving, but these engines are often more reliable, stronger and more efficient than other options.
Many drivers read it as bit-turbo, but it is actually pronounced like ‘by-turbo’. We won’t tell if you miss pronounce it though.
