Toyota 8AR-FTS 2.0T Engine

The 8AR-FTS engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged direct-injected gasoline engine of the four-cylinder AR engine family. It debuted in 2015 in the Lexus NX 200t and became the first Toyota’s turbocharged power unit in a series of new engines with significantly improved thermal and fuel efficiency by using direct injection, cylinder head with the integrated exhaust manifold, and advanced turbocharger control. The engine itself is very similar to the naturally aspirated direct-injection 6AR-FSE engine but nonetheless has unique features and differences.
