A V engine is a
developed construction of a
engine with all cylinders aligned in one row
which in our opinion} is
wiser to choose one. Engine of V layout
in a vehicle the Ford
gives more torque at lower RPM ranges due to
the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of
motor may contain more
cylinders without a need of much extending its dimensions. A
Smooth engine work and thrilling sound is
to a V engine’s advantage.
