Representatives from Ford reported that the model Transit and Transit Custom will now be equipped with a modified transmission and diesel engine Ford EcoBlue 2.0.

The engine will be environmentally friendly and throw in the atmosphere just 157 g / km of CO2. Also, due to lower engine speed will increase its handling.

the versatile all-new 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue engine initially will be offered with 105 PS, 130 PS and 170 PS in commercial vehicle applications. Capable of delivering more than 200 PS, the engine will later feature in Ford passenger cars alongside further new EcoBlue engines – including a 1.5‑litre variant. Ford also introduced on cars Transit advanced intelligent all wheel drive (AWD) system and a new multimedia system SYNC 3.

Ford’s range of EcoBlue diesel engines will power the company’s future passenger cars and commercial vehicles with power outputs ranging from 100 PS to 240 PS.

Drivability is enhanced with 20 per cent more torque at 1,250 rpm compared with the outgoing equivalent power 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine, helping commercial vehicle drivers effortlessly tackle challenging everyday driving scenarios such as creeping in traffic, or overtaking slower-moving vehicles.

The new engine also delivers passenger car refinement to the commercial segment, reducing radiated noise by 4 decibels at idle.An all-new engine architecture delivers reduced friction and a clean-burning combustion system. Sophisticated after-treatment processes for exhaust gasses enable ultra-low emissions in line with stringent Euro Stage VI standards.

New fuel injectors are capable of delivering up to six injections per combustion event, with each injection taking as little as 250 microseconds (0.00025 seconds) and delivering 0.8 mg of diesel – equivalent to a grain of sugar. This tiny volume of fuel is injected through eight conical holes each 120 microns in diameter – about the width of a human hair.

Piezoelectric technology that uses electrically-responsive crystals to closely control fuel delivery – typically found in premium passenger-car engines – is incorporated into the body of the injector unit. The new injectors deliver reduced noise levels; minimal energy wastage from the fuel pump; more responsive and less intrusive Auto-Start-Stop performance; and real-time calibration correction for maximum fuel efficiency.

The all-new compact turbocharger has been specifically designed to deliver more air at lower engine rpm compared with the outgoing 2.2-litre TDCi engine, for a light and urgent feel across the rev-range and up to 340 Nm of torque at 1,250 rpm.

An aerodynamically advanced turbine wheel – made from Inconel, an alloy used in extreme temperature environments such as rocket engines – is reduced in diameter by almost 10 per cent. The aerospace aluminium grade compressor wheel is reduced in diameter by 15 per cent. The reductions decrease inertia and enable faster boost performance with wheel speeds up to 240,000 rpm, contributing to improved low-end torque.
