2013 Subaru brz


 

 

 

All-New 200-Horsepower Boxer Engine

 

The 2.0-liter Subaru engine is all new and developed exclusively for the BRZ. Its bore and stroke measure the same (referred to as a “square” design). That contributes to quick revving and the engine’s 7,400-rpm redline. Its 200 horsepower translates to 100 horsepower per liter, which has long been held a standard of performance for a naturally aspirated engine.

 

The 2.0-liter also has a broad torque curve, which peaks at approximately 151 lb-ft and provides a strong midrange. The engine carries its spontaneous power from start-up through the middle engine speeds in each gear.

 

The engine features a contemporary combination of direct-injection and port-injection technology. Along with a high compression ratio (12:5:1), precise fuel injection maximizes performance and efficiency.

 

 

Choice of Transmissions

 

Two transmissions are available – both 6-speeds, and both designed for sporty driving.

 

The standard manual version has a short-throw shifter, and the pedals have been optimized for heel-and-toe operation.

 

The optional automatic has a Sport mode for quicker, firmer shifting and a manual mode for additional control using paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Downshifting includes electronically controlled blipping.

 

 

Engineering and Production

 

The result of a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation, the BRZ was developed, tested, and built by Subaru engineers at the Subaru Gunma assembly plant.
