|This page refers to the 24 valve SOHC 6G74 V6 used in the KJ through KW Verada and TJ through TW Magna. For the earlier 147kW versions see 1g_6G74. For the 180 kW Ralliart version see 6G74_ralliart. For other versions of this engine not used in Magnas see 6G7x family.|
With the release of the TJ/KJ series, the 6G74 underwent a transformation in order to increase performance, reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions. The result was a revised 6G74.
The revised 6G74 was virtually the same as the early 6G74 except that it used different camshafts and engine management systems.
While all of the revised 6G74s were the same basic design, it came out in three power levels. These were:
- 150kW: This was the initial revised 6G74 used in the TJ/KJ series.
- 155kW: The first update to the revised 6G74, used a differently calibrated engine management system to produce extra power while reducing city run fuel consumption. This change was made in the TJ MY02/KJ MY02.
- 163kW: The "sports" power level, used in non AWD sports variants. Extra power achieved by using a free-flowing exhaust system.
