Changes are coming under the hood of the 2019 INFINITI QX50. Automotive News is reporting it will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder variable compression engine. INFINITI says The VC-Turbo engine can automatically change how far the pistons travel up the cylinder by about a quarter of an inch. They’ve spent 20 years developing the engine. INFINITI says the technology will allow the engine to adjust between higher performance or better efficiency depending on the driving situations.
