Ford @ The Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham
Ford’s new Transit and Transit Custom commercial vehicles powered by the all-new, state-of-the-art 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engine will offer improved cost of ownership and performance for customers from mid-2016.
New from the ground up, the next-generation Ford EcoBlue engine enhances fuel efficiency by up to 13 per cent compared with the outgoing 2.2-litre TDCi engine, with CO2 emissions from 157 g/km, and delivers significant improvements in low-rpm torque for enhanced driveability. The new engine – available to order now – also will deliver up to 2-year/60,000 km (37,000 mile) variable service intervals for Transit and Transit Custom operators.
The all-new downsized 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engine has been engineered to meet Ford’s rigorous commercial vehicle durability standards, powering Transit vehicles through the equivalent of 5.5 million km (3.4 million miles) of punishing durability testing, including 400,000 km (250,000 miles) of testing at the hands of real-world Transit customers.
