The first engine of Chery was born as early as 1999, which marked the opening of its technological exploration and independent development. Just four years later, in 2003, Chery independently developed the first generation of ACTECO engines, marking the birth of the first series of engines with the forward design and independent intellectual property rights among Chinese automobile brands. The first generation of ACTECO engines cover a variety of models, such as 0.8L-2.0L naturally aspirated engines, and Chery has truly independently mastered the core technology of engines.
In 2009, Chery launched its second generation of ACTECO engines. Since then, Chery has achieved a "zero" breakthrough in high-performance engines of Chinese brand automobiles. Compared with the first generation, the second generation of engines have been comprehensively improved in power performance, economy and emission, and are more optimized in structure, which have the advanced lightweight level in the industry at that time. The second generation of engines cover a variety of models such as 1.6DVVT and 1.5TCI, and are mounted on such products as Arrizo and Tiggo series.

With the forward development system and leading technical advantages, Chery has continuously developed engines with higher technical level and stronger performance. In 2018, the third generation of Chery ACTECO engines came into being. Among them, ACTECO 1.6TGDI engine is the first product of the third generation of engines, which has excellent power performance with a maximum power of 145 kW and a peak torque of 290 N•m, and continues to lead Chinese brand engines with a thermal efficiency of 37.1%. In 2019, Chery's third generation of ACTECO 1.6TGDI engines won the title of "Top Ten Engines of the Year” in China.
At Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition in 2021, Chery released "Chery 4.0 Era Full-domain Global Power Architecture", which was named "KUNPENG POWER". The 2.0TGDI engine was also released at the same time, with a maximum power of 192 kW, a peak torque of 400 N•m and a maximum effective thermal efficiency of 41%, which is one of the strongest power among Chinese automobile brands.
After more than 20 years' technical accumulation, Chery ACTECO engines have undergone three generations of "evolution", creating series products with a displacement ranging from 0.8 L to 4.0 L. As the strength representative of "China Core", Chery has accumulated six engine models selected as "Top Ten Engines" in China. The evolution of Chery's "China Core" is the epitome of Chery's persistence in "technological innovation" and strengthening its core competitiveness for more than 20 years.
After 25 years of global market development, Chery ACTECO products have been exported to more than 80 countries and regions, with accumulated users exceeding 9.7 million. Chery has brought China's strongest power to the whole world, making global consumers enjoy the surprise driving experience brought by the technological innovation.
