Purpose of Engine Cylinders 

Many drivers don’t understand what engine cylinders are and how they impact performance. Cylinders indicate how big an engine is and are responsible for creating thrust, horsepower, and torque.  

An engine cylinder is made up of a chamber which houses the pistons. Within this chamber, the piston pushes forward, creating energy made by the combustion of fuel and air. This energy is essential in accelerating your vehicle.

Without these cylinders, your engine could stop functioning altogether.

While diversity amongst engine types is plentiful here at Jake Sweeney Kia, you’ll mostly get to choose between four-cylinder, V6, and V8 enginesOn average, a four-cylinder engine is going to be less powerful than a V8 engine, but it will also burn less fuel. 

As a result, cylinder count can often be used to determine the difference in performance between two vehicles.
