Dayco divided the victory of the Dodge Ram 1500 in the international competition of the best engines


Dayco — the leading global supplier of engine components and drive systems for automotive and industrial equipment and the after-sales service market, confirmed its highest technological level, designed and manufacturing the vibrational oscillations of the crankshaft for the engine marked by the annual international ranking of Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems for 2020 Year («10 best engines and power plants»). The award ceremony took place on January 16.

This award was claimed by the 26 most technological motors from Europe, America and Asia. The winner was the 3,6-liter V6 Pentastar from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) with a 48-volt Hybrid ETORQUE system installed on the Dodge Ram 1500 and Jeep Wrangler Sahara.

The damper damper of the DAYCO crankshaft oscillations for V6 Pentastare Torque is designed to reduce noise, vibrations and smoothing jerks. Its design includes technology that allows you to achieve maximum stability of the energy transmission system, while simultaneously reducing the bending of the belt tension. Thus, the service life of the devices leading to them is extended and the overall efficiency of the car is improved. Using its own patented software in conjunction with the best samples of commercial software, Dayco still at the virtual design stage exhausts the properties of its products — until the first prototypes are manufactured. Such an approach improves product performance in full-fledged production.

In addition to the diverse assortment of DAYCO power gear releases a wide range of dampers specifically designed to absorb linear, twisting or mixed vibration. Creativity and innovation in combination with analytical and empirical research tools — key factors providing the technical leadership of Dayco in this area. Recessed belt oscillation damper (RBD), radial internal tubular drive damper (RADIAL ITD) and elastic low-frequency oscillation dampers (LFGD) — all this examples of how the company can develop effective solutions for many customers.

Dieco Crankshaft Vibration Damper for Starter-Generator Belt System (BSG) on the winning ETORQUE Pentastar engine helps the RAM 1500 easy pickup to achieve an American Fuel Consumption Standard for 100 km in the city cycle and 9 , 4 LNA 100 km when driving on the highway. The damper softens the vibration caused by the work of the Stop Start system, and provides smooth and quiet engine operation. According to FCA, the BSG system helps the RAM 1500 2019 model year to reach 18% of the best efficiency in the city and 10% of the smaller consumption in the mixed cycle compared to the Pickup of the previous generation.

Dayco also supplies dampers for some versions of the world-famous GM Small Block V8 engine, including a 6,2-liter unit used on Chevrolet Silverado, which has received a reward in 2019. The last embodiment of the Small Block V8 — LT2 — put under the hood of the new Chevrolet Corvette of the eighth generation. This motor was also among the applicants for the Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems award of this year.

This is the 26th annual Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems Award. Its idea is to need to note the outstanding achievements and technology of world-class in the engine-building industry, as well as in the field of internal combustion engines and electrical power plants that really help promote cars on the market. New or significantly modified engines and power plants, which are equipped with serial machines sold on the market in the first quarter of 2020 with a starting price of no more than $ 64,000 with a starting price of no more than 64,000 US dollars, can participate in the competition.
