German term or phrase: Kennfeldkühlung
Als weltweit erster Hersteller setzte BMW bei den neuen V8-Motoren ein bedarfsorientiertes, variables Motorkühlsystem, die Kennfeldkühlung, ein. In Verbindung mit dem 5-Gang-Automatikgetriebe erhielten seither alle 7er auch die Steptronic, die neben der vollautomatischen Steuerung individuelles „Hand“-Schalten ermöglicht.

Map Cooling

Well, this is not easy to be translated.
“Kennfeld” comes from Fuzzy-Logic.
There can be several “Kennwerte” mapped into a “Kennfeld,” set as criteria to trigger an action or actions.
“Kennfeldkühlung” must be a cooling system which takes actions according to such characteristic values.
“Map Cooling” could be the best translation.
