As you’ll probably know by know, the engine replaces a normally aspirated 3.0-liter inline-6 that was available in the 2011 model year.

Like the company's latest TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter turbo inline-6, the new 2.0-liter engine combines high-pressure direct-injection and BMW's VALVETRONIC intake control (hence the name: TwinPower) with a forced induction system consisting of a single twin-scroll turbocharger.
