PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford Motor Company have introduced new 1.6-liter and 2-liter common rail direct injection diesel engines developed jointly. The new engines are equipped with modern technology that help to reduce fuel consumption, improve drivability, minimize noise and vibration, and lower emissions. In the second half of 2003, the engines will gradually be integrated into both partners’ model lines.
The 1.6 liter engines will be available in 110 horsepower (80 kW) and 90 hp (66 kW) versions, with the HDi 1.6l in PSA Group automobiles and the Duratorq TDCi 1.6l in Ford models. They will be installed in over 37 distinct car models from both partners.
The 1.6-liter HDi/TDCi engine is made entirely of aluminum, resulting in a weight of only 120 kilos, making it ideal for usage in tiny cars. A Bosch second-generation common rail injection system with maximum pressures of 1,600 bar is included in the combustion system. Up to six injections per engine cycle are possible thanks to the system’s multiple injection technology.
Certain variants of the 1.6-liter HDi/TDCi will be equipped with the Peugeot particulate filter system in early 2004, resulting in low emissions that comply with the Euro 4 (2005) criteria.
PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford are both releasing a second-generation 2.0-liter engine, the HDi 2l and Duratorq TDCi 2.0l, respectively. The new engine is the most recent addition to PSA Peugeot Citroen’s 2.0-liter HDi family, which has been used in more than three million mid- and upper-range vehicles since 1998.
Siemens provides the engine’s new-generation common rail direct injection system. It can handle up to six separate injections and has a 1,600 bar injection pressure. With 136 horsepower (100 kW), the new 2.0-liter HDi/Duratorq TDCi engine produces 36% greater torque (340 Nm at 2,000 rpm) than its predecessor.
The new engine will also come with a particulate filter, making it Euro 4 compliant.
A total investment of roughly 1 billion was required to launch the new engines. Production capacity will eventually approach 1,600,000 engines per year, with each partner contributing the majority of the diesel powerplants in their key model lines. PSA Peugeot Citroen’s Trémery facility in the Lorraine region of Eastern France will produce the engines. The plant’s existing production line was adapted to handle the new engines for a cost of 159 million.
Who makes engines for Citroen?
The PSA Group (Peugeot/Citroen) sells a wide range of car engines. Later HDi engines are produced in collaboration with Ford Motor Company.
What engines do Citroen use?
Over the next few years, Citroen will follow parent company Peugeot in incorporating turbocharged BMW engines into its petrol-powered cars. The British-built BMW 1.6-litre engine was designed specifically for the Mini and comes in three power outputs: 120, 150, and 175 horsepower.
Who uses PSA diesel engines?
The PSA EW/DW engine family includes the 8-valve 2.0 L DW10, which produces 90 or 110 brake horsepower (67 or 82 kW). It has a turbocharger with a fixed geometry. Initially offered in midsize cars such as the Citroen Xsara and Xantia, as well as the Peugeot 306 and 406, it was quickly expanded across the PSA range, including LCVs, and a 16-valve version with 109 PS (80 kW) was used in the large MPVs created in collaboration with Fiat. Suzuki was a customer for these engines, which were used in the Vitara and Grand Vitara in Europe. The PSA/Ford joint venture DW10B and DW10C engines share a 16-valve head and cylinder housing. The Ford Focus, 2007 Ford Mondeo, Ford Galaxy, Ford C-Max, Ford S-Max, Volvo C30, Volvo S40, Volvo V50, Citroen C5, Citroen C6, Peugeot 407, Peugeot 408 and Peugeot 5008 are all equipped with them.
Do Ford use Peugeot diesel engines?
Ford Motor Company now uses collaboration-produced engines in its Ford, Mazda, Volvo, Jaguar, and Land Rover brands, while PSA Peugeot Citron uses them in its Peugeot and Citron models. The program was first introduced in 1998. Since then, Ford Motor Company and PSA Peugeot Citron have together produced over four million diesel engines, making them the world’s leading diesel engine manufacturers.
Does Peugeot make their own engines?
With the large van market, PEUGEOT is completing the roll-out of its Euro 6 engine range. The PSA Group has developed and manufactured a new series of 2.0-litre BlueHDi Diesel engines for the PEUGEOT Boxer.
Are Vauxhall using Peugeot engines?
Vauxhall has released the first images and information of the facelifted Astra, which will feature further Peugeot and Citroen innovations.
The new engines are by far the most essential feature of the facelifted Astra. Because Vauxhall is now controlled by the PSA Group, several of the new powertrains have been adapted from Peugeot, Citroen, and DS models.
Does Land Rover use Peugeot engines?
TDV8 was released in 2006 by PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford Motor Company. The 3.6-litre twin-turbo 8-cylinder V-shaped diesel engine produced 272 horsepower. Land Rover Range Rover and Land Rover Range Rover Sport versions utilised the power unit.
What is BlueHDi diesel?
A COMPLETELY NEW TECHNOLOGY. BlueHDi technology, developed by the PSA Group, combines the additive particulate filter (DPF) with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by injecting AdBlue. NOx emissions are reduced by up to 90% using this method.
