Smaller sized diesel for PAG
The 2nd phase of Ford’s diesel engine partnership with PSA will bear fruit across Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo once the revised form of the Peugeot-Citro?n 2.2 HDi hits the marketplace.
The Land Rover Freelander is going to be first to profit in the year 2006, once the supply deal for that BMW Td4 diesel involves an finish. Exactly the same engine also needs to enter in the next-generation S-key in 2007 and X-key in ’08, and Volvo can also be searching at a variety of applications. The present 2.2 HDi can be used within the Peugeot 607 and 807, and also the Citro?n C5 and C8. Power will jump from 136bhp to 156bhp – concentrating on the same gains in torque expected in the current 235lb foot. The engine differs to Ford’s own 2.2 diesel, entering the Mondeo later this season.
