Ford has introduced a new EcoBlue advance diesel engine that has been optimized for better fuel efficiency, and also assuring less emissions of harmful CO2 and NOX. At first, the four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue engine will make its way to the Transit and Transit Custom vans. The company aims to power its future passenger cars and commercial vehicles that would develop power in between 98hp to 237hp.
In India, Ford has assembled the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine in the EcoSport, available in top variants- Trend+ and Titanium+. The EcoBlue engine can also be the replacement for the 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine that could have the commercial vehicles deliver better efficiency.
Making an statement on the new engine, Jim Farley, chairman and CEO of Ford of Europe said, “Ford’s EcoBoost created a new standard for petrol engines – smaller, more efficient with surprising performance. That same obsession to innovate for the customer is behind our new Ford EcoBlue diesel engine range. This new engine lifts fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 by over 10 percent in Transit, part of Europe’s best selling commercial vehicle line-up, lowering costs for our customers.”
The all-new EcoBlue engine architecture offers a clean combustion system along with reduced friction mechanism. The emissions are perfectly fit according to the Euro VI standards, which is likely to be introduced by September 2016. The Euro VI standards demands for a 55 percent reduction in NOX emissions.
