Default New PSA/Ford Diesel Engines


PSA Peugeot CitroŽn and the Ford Motor Company unveiled new 1.6-liter and 2-liter common rail direct injection diesel engines developed under their cooperative venture. The new engines feature advanced technologies developed to reduce fuel consumption, enhance drivability, noise and vibration performance, and reduce emissions. The engines are scheduled to gradually equip both partnersí model lines in the second half of 2003.

The 1.6-Liter Engine
The 1.6 liter enginesóknown as the HDi 1.6l in PSA Groupís cars and the Duratorq TDCi 1.6l in Ford modelsówill be available in 110 hp (80 kW) and 90 hp (66 kW) versions. They will equip more than 37 different vehicle versions of both partners.

The 1.6-liter HDi/TDCi engine features ďall-aluminumĒ construction, which has kept its weight at a low 120 kilograms, thus facilitating its use in small cars. Its combustion system includes a Bosch second-generation common rail injection system with maximum pressures of 1,600 bar. The system uses a multiple injection technique enabling up to six injections per engine cycle.

In early 2004, certain versions of the 1.6-liter HDi/TDCi will be equipped with the Peugeot particulate filter system, offering low emission levels in compliance with the Euro 4 (2005) regulation.

The 2-Liter Engine
PSA Peugeot CitroŽn and Ford are also introducing a second-generation 2.0-liter engine known respectively as the HDi 2l and the Duratorq TDCi 2.0l. The new powerplant represents the latest development in the 2.0-liter HDi family, which has been used in more than three million PSA Peugeot CitroŽnís mid- and upper-range cars since 1998.

The engineís new-generation common rail direct injection system is supplied by Siemens. It manages up to six different injections and delivers an injection pressure of 1,600 bar. The new 2.0-liter HDi/Duratorq TDCi engine at 136 hp (100 kW) offers 25% more power and 36% more torque (340 Nm at 2,000 rpm) than its predecessor.

The new engine will be also available in a Euro 4 compliant version with the particulate filter.

Launching the new engines required an aggregate investment of nearly Ä1 billion. Production capacity will ultimately exceed 1,600,000 engines a year, providing most of the diesel powerplants in the core model lines of each partner. The engines will be manufactured at PSA Peugeot CitroŽnís Trťmery plant in the Lorraine region of Eastern France. Ä159 million was spent to adapt the plantís existing production line to handle the new engines.
