G4KE 2.4L Engine

The G4KE engine belongs to the Theta II family. The engine is the same as the G4KD engine but has more displacement.

The 2.4-liter displacement was achieved by installing the new crankshaft with 97 mm stroke instead of two-liter version's 86 mm stroke crankshaft, and bigger cylinder bore. The G4KE got new pistons with the diameter of 88 mm. The 2.0-liter engine has 86 mm piston diameter. This engine is equipped the same variable valve timing system CVVT on both camshafts already. There are not hydraulic lifters/tappets in the valvetrain of the G4KE.

The G4KE is a copy of Mitsubishi's the 4B12 engine. It took the start of as the result of the World Engine program. The 4B12 is available for the Mitsubishi Outlander, Peugeot 4007, Citroen C-crosser and other cars.
