THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN V6 AND STRAIGHT-SIX ENGINES!!

The Differences Between V6 And Straight-Six Engines!

When the four-stroke internal combustion engine was first created, they could not dare to think that this thing will be powering most of the mobile machines in the world, they had originally constructed it as a fixed motor which would replace a steam engine.
Little did they know that in less than a century there would be so many different variations of a four-stroke engine with such diverse construction methods.
Today we bring you a video that hopefully will explain what are the main differences between the inline six and the V6 engines, and what are they main advantages and disadvantages.
Amongst the first differences that come to mind is balancing, as you know a well-balanced or harmonious engine will run better and last longer, and the inline six comes on top here since the inline six is the most perfectly balanced engine of them all. All of the vibrations balance each other perfectly and cancel themselves out creating the smoothest running engines.
Play the video and see the rest of the good and bad in this comparison.

  1. Pretty sure that Jaguar paved the way for the Straight Six… After all, the XK twin cam was in production from 1949 to 1994… And it powered the C-Type, the D-Type which won LeMans 3 years running, and of course the E-Type…
