2.7 litre V6 diesel for Ford Territory
by Stephen Walker
4th February, 2011
The Ford engine plant in Dagenham, England,
manufactures approximately one million engines a year. These include a variety of engine size, in a
mix of petrol and diesel variants. The engines power European Ford models and, additionally, engines
are supplied to Jaguar, Land Rover and PSA Peugeot Citroen.
Thousands of Ford's 2.7 litre V6 diesel will be supplied to Ford Australia for the upcoming Ford
Territory which is due this year (see sketch).
Also due this year is a new Ford Falcon, featuring new powertrain options. For example, there will
be a 2-litre 4 cylinder variant. Interestingly, this "EcoBoost" engine is also available in the new
2011 American-built Ford Explorer.
Additionally, the next generation Ford Focus arrives mid-year.
Another new model due later this year is the all-new Thai-built Ford Ranger which will complete a
very busy year for Ford following recent introductions of new Fiesta and Mondeo models.
