The Volkswagen Passat is a family car that has been built since 1973. It is built by Volkswagen Passenger Cars and is one of the headline mid-size sedans that Volkswagen manufactures. Rebuilt VW Passat Engines are on sale now, for less than expected.
The VW Passat was introduced in 1973 and featured a 4-cylinder OHC 1.3 liter engine that was able to produce 54 horsepower. It was also available with a 1.5 liter engine that was able to put out 74 horsepower. The Passat was mated to a 4-speed manual transmission or a 3-speed automatic. In 1975, the 1.5 liter engine was bumped up to a 1.6 liter engine that was able to produce 84 horsepower with an increase in torque. By 1975, the first diesel Passat was introduced with a 1.5 liter engine that was able to produce 49 horsepower. Following the release of the diesel Passat, Volkswagen improved on the engine by offering a fuel-injected model that had a displacement of 1.6 liters.
For North America, the Passat was available with a carburated 1.5 liter inline-4 engine that could produce 75 horsepower. For the US market, the Passat was also available with a 1.6 liter inline-4 engine that was capable of producing 78 horsepower.
In 1981, the second generation VW Passat was released and named the model B2. The B2 Passat was sold with either a 4-cylinder gas engine or a diesel engine. Those looking for a faster Passat were able to purchase the optional 5-cylinder engine that came in either 1.9 liter or 2.2 liter capacities.
The VW Passat was redesigned for a third generation in 1988 and released to all markets by 1995. These Passats came with fuel-injected gasoline engines and used better carburetors than before. The 1988 VW Passat was available with a 2.0 liter 16-valve engine for the GL or a 1.8 liter engine in the CL model. The Passat was also available with the 2.8 liter VR6 engine that produced 172 horsepower or the G60 engine that created 158 horsepower. The VR6 engine allowed the VW Passat to race up to 139 miles per hour.
In 2005, the VW Passat came with engines that range from the 1.6 liter to the 3.6 liter engine. The bigger 3.6 liter engine is able to produce an amazing 276 horsepower.
