As one of the leading providers of new Genesis cars in Fort Myers, FL we understand just how much engine type plays into overall performance. At O’Brien Genesis of Fort Myers, our auto experts are here to show you how engine type matters and why cylinder-count can dramatically affect the performance of your engine.

No two engines are alike in every way. While they may operate by the same principles, what separates them is often the various components that make them up, and no engine component is quite as defining as the cylinders. Your engine cylinders are responsible for burning and converting fuel into mechanical energy, which can then be pumped through the rest of the powertrain.

In performance cars, like those found in our showroom, high cylinder-count engines are a dime a dozen. When more cylinders pump and convert fuel to energy, your horsepower and torque increases. While the relationship isn’t exactly 1:1, it is almost always likely that a V8 engine is going to outpace a four-cylinder engine. When you’re shopping for a vehicle in our showroom, you’ll likely have the choice of either a V6 or a V8 engine, both of which are of rare occurrence in luxury sedans. As a result, you’ll get the opportunity to try out vehicles that go above and beyond in terms of performance and provide you with a driving experience that is truly remarkable.

Here at O’Brien Genesis of Fort Myers, we believe in the value of a test-drive and ensure that all of our customers get a comprehensive look our vehicles before they sign on the dotted line. Our Genesis service team can also fill you in on any questions you may have about engines so that you can drive away knowing that you made the best purchase possible.
