VR6 engine origins date back to the eighties. At the time, the first
attempt to create a six-cylinder engine. However, it was impossible to put
under the hood of cars with front wheel drive transverse mounted engine or
inline or forking. Problem was solved by using a combination of advantages
of both structures. In this way, a motor with a cylinder placed at an angle
of 15 degrees in one block.
The use of this structure enabled the reduction in size of the engine, so
that it can be positioned laterally. The first Volkswagenami engine Passat
VR6 and Corrado were available on the U.S. market since 1991. Displacing
2.8 liters displacement had the power of 174 hp and torque of 240 Nm.
Version 2.9 l had the power to 190 hp and torque of 245 Nm. In 1992, VW has
equipped the engine has entrant Golf III. It was the first car in its class
with such a large capacity engine.
The next generation of VR6 engines were 24-valve engines manufactured since
1999. Changed their name to the V6 although structural solutions have not
changed. Models were applied in Bora 4-motion and the Golf IV 4-motion.
They had the power of 204 hp. In 2003 he established a more comprehensive
version of the VR6 - 3.2 liter, called R32 up to 250 hp.
Currently, the latest design of VR Volkswagen R36 is the engine capacity of
3.6 liters and output of more than 300 hp. Significantly changed the
structure, the angle between the cylinders is 10.6 degrees. It was
introduced for sale in 2005.
