Ford Transit Connect customers can now benefit from improved fuel economy and lower emissions by choosing the new 1.8-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi engine 89bhp or 108bhp option that exceeds the new Euro Stage V emission requirements.
The new 1.8-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi Stage V engines include a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with vaporiser technology that collects over 95 per cent of all engine soot emissions. When the DPF is full, the new vaporiser technology heats the DPF to 600oC to turn all the soot into CO2 and water in a process known as a regeneration cycle. The new vaporiser increases the system’s efficiency and reduces emissions compared to normal cDPFs.
Additionally, all Stage V engines will now have a Variable Nozzle Turbo (VNT) that boosts low end torque, improves driveability and also reduces emissions. As with the 108bhp version, the Stage V 89bhp Ford Duratorq TDCi engine will now also come with a revised final drive ratio for enhanced fuel efficiency.
