Volvo designed the SI6 ("short inline 6") straight-6 automobile engine for use in 2007 models. An evolution of the company's long-used straight-5 Volvo Modular engine, which itself is an evolution of the Volvo B6304 straight six engine, the SI6 can be mounted transversely for front wheel drive or all wheel drive applications. Despite the added cylinder and displacement, the engine remains compact, and is in fact 1 mm (0.04 in) shorter than the previous straight-5. The engine was initially offered in two displacements — a 3.0 L turbocharged version and a 3.2 L naturally aspirated version. Both offered variable cam timing, though only the turbo version varies both the intake and exhaust valves. On top of the variable cam timing used on the intake cam of the naturally aspirated engine it also had variable valve lift by using Cam Profile Switching (CPS).
The 3.0 L turbocharged engine is available in a light-pressure turbo (LPT) version. Cylinder bore is 82.0 mm (3.23 in) and stroke is 93.2 mm (3.67 in) with a compression ratio of 9.3:1.
In 2010 for MY2011 a new upgraded version was unveiled with the new Volvo S60 giving higher output and lower fuel consumption to replace the old T6 in all cars.
