Power Solutions International Launches Purpose-Built, 8.8-Liter 500-Hp Engine at RVIA Trade Show

Latest Big-Block Engines Raise the Bar for Class A Gasoline-Fueled RV Performance

WOOD DALE, Ill., Dec. 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Solutions International, Inc. (PSI) (NASDAQ:PSIX), a leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of emissions-certified alternative-fuel and conventional power systems, presents its latest gasoline-fueled RV engines at RVIA’s 53rd National RV Trade Show in Louisville, KY, December 1-3, 2015.  PSI’s top highlights include its purpose-built, 500 horsepower 8.8-liter RV engine and a low-speed 8.8-liter engine designed to deliver diesel-like torque.  The company is also showcasing its 6.0-liter RV engine.

“We are very excited about launching some breakthrough products at RVIA this year.  With the RV market set to reach a 25-year high, this is the perfect time and place to offer OEMs high-powered gasoline engines,” said Gary Winemaster, PSI’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “There has been a market gap in terms of affordable, high-performance Class A options.  Our new engines provide choices that will enable consumers to avoid taking a hit on power or price.”

Topping out at 500 horsepower at 4750 rpm and 585 ft-lb of torque at 4000 rpm for RV applications, the new high-horsepower, high-speed 8.8-liter engine provides solid Class A power that far exceeds the 362 hp currently delivered by gasoline engines.  Mr. Winemaster said that PSI designed the fully integrated, drop-in RV solution from the ground up to deliver uncompromised performance optimized for gasoline.

“Our new engines restore the power range that gas engines have been missing, both on the high-horsepower end and the low-speed, high-torque end,” added Winemaster. “Larger gas RVs have been attractively priced, but many consumers find that they don’t provide enough torque for pickup.  That can be a real problem at the higher elevations in which RV enthusiasts often travel.  Low power can also limit towing and packing capacity, as users reach maximum weight limits.”

Winemaster said that for manufacturers and RV customers that prefer diesel-like, low-speed torque, PSI’s low-speed 8.8-liter engine delivers an impressive 524 ft-lb of torque at 2400 rpm and 265 hp at 2800 rpm. PSI is also featuring its 6.0-liter gasoline RV engine, which delivers 345 hp at 5600 rpm and 373 ft-lb of torque at 4400 rpm.

PSI’s latest RV engines will be showcased at booth #5 at RVIA’s 53rd National RV Trade Show, to be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY, December 1-3, 2015.
