Mitsubishi Car Engines – Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) always develops the latest technologies in its production vehicles. One of them is a technology called MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control System). This technology is the name given to all Mitsubishi car engines which are equipped with a valve-timing adjustment mechanism. Or the opening time of the air valve in the machine which can be adjusted to the machine’s needs automatically.

This MIVEC technology is also made with the aim of producing more power. Then the efficient fuel consumption, and also the gas emissions that are discharged are low. As well as being able to maintain environmental sustainability.
The MIVEC engine itself was present and was first used in 1992 on the Mitsubishi Mirage. And since then Mitsubishi has always developed and added a number of enhancements to be able to produce better performance. The result of this development was that Mitsubishi Motors was able to develop the MIVEC into the All New MIVEC engine. This machine is able to control the intake valve and the size of the valve lift at the same time all the time.
For Mitsubishi cars in Indonesia, some are already using MIVEC technology. Among them are the Small MPV Mitsubishi Motors model, the Mitsubishi Xpander which is equipped with a 4A91 MIVEC 1.5L DOHC 16 Valve engine. The machine is capable of producing a maximum power of up to 105 PS at 6,000 rpm engine speed and also a maximum torque of 141 Nm at 4,000 rpm engine speed.
Another car is the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The engine of this car is different from the Xpander, the engine on the Outlander Sport is a 4B11 16 Valve MIVEC DOHC with a capacity of 2,000 cc. This machine is capable of producing a maximum power of up to 150 Ps at an engine speed of 6,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 197 Nm at an engine speed of 4,200 rpm.
Then another car that uses this MIVEC technology is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross which uses a 4B40 DOHC MIVEC 1.5L engine that is equipped with a Turbocharged. That way this car has a more powerful torque at low-medium RPM. With a four-cylinder engine, the Eclipse Cross is capable of producing a maximum power of up to 150 Ps at an engine speed of 5,500 Rpm and a maximum torque of up to 250 Nm at an engine speed of 2,000 – 3,500 rpm.
