How do you choose an engine for your BMW M5?

Careful consideration should be given to what type of motor both satisfies the requirements of the car and is also right for you. The choice can vary from one driver to another depending on budget, vehicle, performance needs, and other circumstances. A car with a small motor and less power will get better fuel economy while a large motor with great power may be favored by those who value performance.

What does the number of cylinders mean?

The number of cylinders in a cars motor is an indicator of its overall performance. Within each cylinder is a piston that pumps inside it. Since the pistons connect and move the crankshaft, the more pistons there are moving, the more combustive events are occurring at any time. The more cylinders there are, the more power can be created.

Four-cylinder motors often have straight or inline configurations with those while six-cylinder motors have configurations in more of a V shape, which is why theyre called V-6 motors. Turbocharging technology like that used in BMW motors has, however, made four-cylinder motors more appealing to buyers and more powerful in overall performance.
