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 euros. The engine block has cylinder head fittings separate from the cylinder jackets. The threads are positioned in the upper part of the 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 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 Ecotec X18XE engine adopted by Brazilian Fiat vehicles and the old Torque engine adopted by various Fiat vehicle.

In march 2018 Fiat built over 1,2 million E.torQ engine; 35% of the total production was exported to Fiat Chrysler factory in Argentina, Turkey and Italy[4].
