The E.torQ is a family of automobile engines produced since 2011 by Fiat in Campo Largo, Brazil[1] in the former Tritec factory.[2]

The E.torQ engines are based on the discontinued Tritec engines but re-engineered by Fiat Powertrain Technologies with an investment of 83 million of euros. The engine block has cylinder head fittings separate from the cylinder jackets. The threads are positioned in the upper part of the das water jackets and the connections between the jackets and the outside are kept apart from the cylinder head fittings. The engine makes 80% of the torque available at 1,500 rpm and the 93% of torque is available at 2,500 rpm.

The new family of E.torQ engines is composed by two variants: the 1.6 16v and the 1.8 16v; both engines are available in flexifuel (petrol or ethanol) version for the Brazilian market.[3]

The E.torQ series replaced the old General Motors 1.8 X18XE engine adopted by Brazilian Fiat vehicles and the old 1.9 Torque engine adopted by Fiat Linea.


The 1.6 L 16v variant (1,598 cc) uses 77.0 mm bore and 85.8 mm stroke.


  • gasoline (European market): 110 PS (81 kW; 108 hp) at 5500 rpm with a torque of 152 N·m (15.5 kg·m; 112.1 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm
  • gasoline (Latin American markets): 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) at 5500 rpm with a torque of 159 N·m (16.2 kg·m; 117.3 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm
  • ethanol (Brazilian market): 117 PS (86 kW; 115 hp) at 5500 rpm with a torque of 165 N·m (16.8 kg·m; 121.7 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm



The 1.8 L 16v (1,747 cc) variant uses 80.5 mm bore and 85.8 mm stroke.


  • gasoline (Latin American markets): 130 PS (96 kW; 128 hp) at 5250 rpm with a torque of 181 N·m (18.5 kg·m; 133.5 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm
  • ethanol (Brazilian market): 132 PS (97 kW; 130 hp) at 5250 rpm with a torque of 185 N·m (18.9 kg·m; 136.4 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm
