Ford's New Diesel Engine Is Ready For The Future

Industry News

Unfortunately it still wont make it to the US.

Ford has unveiled its new 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine. This new unit will replace the current 2.2-liter TDCi. Ford will also release a 1.5-liter version for low-powered models like the Mondeo, Focus, C-Max, and Fiesta. This engine will come in six different tunes with 98, 104, 128 and 168 hp on normal models. There will also be two performance-oriented tunes with 197 and 237 horsepower, respectively. The performance tunes will likely find a home in diesel-powered versions of cars like the Focus ST. Too bad we don't get the diesel ST in America anyway.

Ford says these new engines weigh less than the old ones and even take up less space in the engine bay. Emissions have been improved by 10% and fuel economy has risen by 13%. In addition to being more efficient, these engines produce 20% more torque from as low as 1,250 rpm. The Transit Van will be the first model to get this new engine, but models like the Mondeo, S-Max and Edge will soon follow. These engines pre-empt the Euro 6 regulations which come into effect in September. Good for Ford for being ahead of the game. With the controversies surrounding diesel in the US, we will most likely never get these engines, which is a shame. A diesel Focus ST sound like a good proposition.
