Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In automotive engineering, a longitudinal engine is an internal combustion engine in which the crankshaft is oriented along the long axis of the vehicle, front to back. Most "premium" vehicles use this engine orientation, both front and rear wheel driven, because powerful engines such as the Inline-6 and 90 big-bore V8 are usually too long to fit in a FF transverse engine while most mainstream modern vehicles use front wheel drive along with transverse engine arrangement.show more
