Chronology
Predecessor Volvo Modular Engine
Successor VEA

Volvo designed the SI6[3] ("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).

Production of the Volvo SI6 began at the Ford Bridgend Engine Plant in Wales in May 2006. It was assumed that the engines would be used in European Ford and Jaguar products as well as Volvos.[4][5]

History[edit]

Nomenclature[edit]

The engine codes consist of a series of letters and digits:

  • 1st: Fuel type (B) B = Bensin (Petrol)
  • 2nd: Number of cylinders (6)
  • 3rd & 4th: Approximate displacement in deciliters, may be rounded up or down. (30 ~= 3.0 L)
  • 5th: Valves per cylinder (4)
  • 6th: Induction method (S/T) S = standard (naturally aspirated), T = turbocharged
  • 7th: Engine variant (2/4/5)

Engine codes are not necessarily unique to a specific engine as power levels can vary depending on market, manufacturer and model.

3.0[edit]

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.

B6304T2[edit]

The B6304T2 is a 3.0 L (2,953 cc) straight-six. Bore is 82 mm (3.2 in) and stroke is 93.2 mm (3.7 in) with a compression ratio of 9.3:1. It is intercooled and turbocharged with a power output of 285 PS (210 kW; 281 hp) at 5600 rpm, and produces 400 N⋅m (300 lb⋅ft) of torque at 1500–4800 rpm.

Applications:

B6304T4[edit]

The B6304T4[8] is a 3.0 L (2,953 cc) straight-six. Bore is 82 mm (3.2 in) and stroke is 93.2 mm (3.7 in) with a compression ratio of 9.3:1. It is intercooled and turbocharged with a power output of 304 PS (224 kW; 300 hp) at 5600 rpm, and produces 440 N⋅m (320 lb⋅ft) of torque at 2100–4200 rpm.[9]

Applications:

B6304T5[edit]

The B6304T5 is a 3.0 L (2,953 cc) straight-six. Bore is 82 mm (3.2 in) and stroke is 93.2 mm (3.7 in) with a compression ratio of 9.3:1. It is intercooled and turbocharged with a power output of 350 PS (257 kW; 345 hp) at 5250 rpm, and produces 500 N⋅m (370 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3000–4750 rpm.[10]

Applications:

3.2[edit]

The naturally aspirated 3.2 L engine has a bore of 84.0 mm (3.31 in) and stroke is 96.0 mm (3.78 in) with a compression ratio of 10.8:1.
In 2010 for MY2011 a new upgraded version was unveiled with higher output and lower fuel consumption.

B6324S[edit]

The B6324S is a 3.2 L (3,192 cc) straight-six. Bore is 84 mm (3.3 in) and stroke is 96 mm (3.8 in) with a compression ratio of 10.8:1. It is naturally aspirated with a power output of 238 PS (175 kW; 235 hp) at 6200 rpm, and produces 320 N⋅m (240 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3200 rpm.[12]

B6324S5[edit]

The B6324S5 is a 3.2 L (3,192 cc) straight-six. Bore is 84 mm (3.3 in) and stroke is 96 mm (3.8 in) with a compression ratio of 10.8:1. It is naturally aspirated with a power output of 243 PS (179 kW; 240 hp) at 5600 rpm, and produces 320 N⋅m (240 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3200 rpm.[9]
In its PZEV version power output is reduced to 234 PS (172 kW; 231 hp) at ????rpm abd produces 0 N⋅m (0 lb⋅ft) of torque at ???? rpm.

Model Power Torque
3.2 245 PS (180 kW; 242 hp) 236 lb⋅ft (320 N⋅m)
