How engine downsizing saved the inline six-cylinder, and why companies like Mercedes are switching from V6 to Inline 6 cylinder engines. Inline six cylinders …May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37328vincent lonbird
IMO: straight 6 is the best engine design.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37329SteveG 6513
Sounds like a typical Mercedes over engineered car that will cost way too much to maintain. Typical German car disease. Car will be worth 10K in 5 years. JunkMay 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37330mark labuschagne
EE, this ISG torque will be subtracted from the engine's output, is it not so?May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37331Gojohnny gp1
My first inline 6 was a Datsun 260z, an amazing powerful and balanced car that I still remember the raw power of after 35 years.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37332Matt Weeks
Bit of over exaggerating on the steering assist it’s not like that at all. You can’t notice it unless your really think about and even then it’s minimal.
Good video though as always.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37333infg3570
Walks into dealership
Jason: "I'm looking for an inline 6"
Dealer: "We've got just the GLE 450 for you! "
Jason: "Meh, gimme just the engine"May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37334None Of your business

Thought U were gonna talk about V-6 engines and not advertise for Mercedes-Benz.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37336chief tp
and when the warranty runs out and you start getting 4 figure repair bills, you'll be trading it for a '94 toyota celica with 240K on it.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37337Timothy Bolden

4:00 – ISG stands for "integrierter Startergenerator". So in german it is called integrated starter generator if you like …

Hi, i have been thinking since a while now, but, couldn't find out the exact ans…so could you help me out in it?
My ques is:
We are travelling from a point A to B from two routes by car "a" and "b" respectively…one route is 50 Kms and other is 100 Kms long, but time taken from both the routes is 2 hours. Assuming that both are same cars with same load on them. Which car will consume more fuel?May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37343Darryl Adams

I need an in-line 8 cylinderMay 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37348ken cohagen
Inline engines are less prone to fail due to vibration problems because of balance problems. An inline can rev higher than a V engine without having to be balanced as well, which was a big issue back in the day. Today that means even more horsepower with better reliability because inlines can rev higher. For decades Indy cars used Offenhauser in line 4 cylinder engines in part due to their ability to rev higher than V8's. The other reason was that they used blind cylinders, which means the cylinder head was screwed onto the cylinder which is then bolted to the block like an aircraft engine, which sealed better under boost.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37349Jonathan Blunt

Makes total sense…that changed has bugged me for a while. This is the German engineering I expect, not the choice of soft metal in the first 3.5 V6 harmonic balancer sprocket, used in the W220 S class, then in the W221 the gasket for the oil cooler in the diesel V6 was not heat resistant which was fixed by using Vitron for the gasket. Those mistakes are totally unexceptionable and I would have sacked those responsible immediately.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37351Shakespeare_Hall

I am fairly sure that there is no specific word in German for "alternator" and that one would just be referred to as a generator. The German word for generator is "Generator". The usage of the term "alternator" for the small poly-phase AC generators in automobiles is kind of a throwback anyway, a term used to differentiate them from the brushed DC generators that preceded them.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37354Grunst57
Rich people will buy these then offload them at 50k. The 2nd owner takes over all the electronic headaches out of warranty. 1st owner goes back to Mercedes to rise and repeat!May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37355TJ Roelsma
People who buy the Mercedes GLE 450 can't really be looking for sporty performance, so why you'd expect the gearbox to shift really fast is beyond me.
Secondly, the German word for alternator is Generator, so that's why it's called an ISG.
Thirdly, the addition of the ISG looks like the first civilian implementation of the hybrid systems the Mercedes F1 car uses. Mercedes seem to have really done their homework there and are now confident enough to introduce their systems in civilian cars.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37356Des M
I would buy a inline 6 or a v6 they both good and the way they done it it's like adding a supercharger and a turboMay 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37357Rob Sorgdrager
Haven't watched yet….
Inline engines have more main support, makes them strong.
They are more balanced, they make more torque due to all the above.
Imagine a flat plane in line six…..😈May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37358w0bblyd0inkb0ink
boost+boost+boost=boom, for long-term reliability, I'll take Toyota any day, thank you very much.May 31, 2019 at 11:32 am #37359John Smith

V6 are better to use the Bi Turbo System
