Volvo announced in September 2011 that it would be fitting its entire lineup with engines consisting of no more than four cylinders.

Volvo’s new four-cylinder engines, grouped under the Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA) heading entered production in May this year and now the automaker has released some specs for it.

The engines are now being called the Drive-E range and will offer the first unit in a 2.0 liter turbodiesel form, for some of its models overseas. The Drive-E engine range consists of two four cylinder engines.

Power will range from 120 to 230 horsepower, while gasoline buyers can expect outputs ranging from 140 to 300 horsepower.

Other improvements to the Drive-E engines include friction-reduction measures such as ball bearings on the camshaft, high-speed continuous variable valve timing and intelligent heat management with a fully variable electric water pump.
