Abstract: Indeed, the engine industries have seen a tremendous growth in the research and development of new-age technologies over the past ten years or so. Even though a huge database is now available on present-day engine technologies, a skillful presentation of those data is a demanding task. At this count, an endeavor has been made here to brief the pros and cons of present-day engine technologies in an elusive manner. In a nut–shell, this article provides an extensive review of the primary principles that preside over the internal combustion engines design and operation, as well as a simplifying framework of new-age engine technologies has been organized and summarized in an elegant way to contribute to this pragmatic field.
