Fiat reportedly interested in twin-turbo V8 diesel for Maserati Ghibli, V6 oil burner to test demand

Fiat has been planning some big things for the Maserati brand as the corporation’s CEO, Sergio Marchionne, continues his global offensive on trying to make Fiat one of the most prominent automakers of the world. To exemplify this, CARandDRIVER reports that Fiat is developing a serious turbodiesel V6, which could potentially lead to an even more serious V8 turbodiesel engine, for the all-new Ghibli.

The Italian brand’s interest in V6 and V8 turbodiesel engines stems from the absence of them in Ghibli’s particular market as its direct competitors, BMW and Benz, have axed their big V8 diesels, apparently to cut costs. Uh oh…those aren’t the words us car enthusiasts like to hear. But due to the absence of the German eight-cylinder oil burners, Fiat supposedly sees an “overwhelming customer demand” for them, hence their decision to pursue.

Right now, Maserati is taking it slow and testing that supposed demand by starting off with a twin-turbo diesel V6 good for 275hp. Should it be well received, a 4.0L direct-injected diesel will follow not too shortly after. The predicted power output for the V8 should be around 360hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Fiat’s newly patented Multijet clean-diesel systems, they say that 30 mpg is the target for the EPA cycles.

Time frame? CARandDRIVER predicts that 2016 should be the timeframe for the V8 turbodiesel.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
