29th November, 2011

From January next year, the Ford Transit 280S will offer one-tonne van customers unsurpassed fuel economy thanks to a new 2.2 four-cylinder TDCi engine to be introduced across the model range.

This new engine will give customers not only improved fuel consumption rates and lower CO2 emissions but also increases in maximum power and torque.

This new 2.2 TDCi turbo-diesel engine will be fitted to the 2012 Transit range in two states of tune: 92 kW/330 Nm (front-wheel drive) and 114 kW/385 Nm (rear-wheel drive, where it will replace the current 2.4-litre power unit). These engine performance gains are summarised below:

NEW 2.2 TDCi Engine



Maximum Power

92 kW (+ 7 kW)

114 kW (+ 11 kW)

Maximum Torque

330 Nm (+ 50 Nm)

385 Nm (+ 10 Nm)

Customers will benefit greatly from these improvements to both fuel economy and CO2 tailpipe emissions. In the case of the Transit 280S, combined-cycle fuel consumption improves by 11 per cent to 7.2 litres/100 km with CO2 a class-leading 189 g/km.

The Transit 280S will also match the fuel economy and emissions of the MY2011 Transit 280S ECOnetic, which as a result will no longer be offered.

These performance and efficiency gains will be provided with no increase to the manufacturer's list price.

"I'm certain our Transit customers will welcome the arrival of this new 2.2 TDCi engine and its many benefits," said Bob Graziano, President and CEO of Ford Australia.

"The additional power and torque will make driving more enjoyable and the increased efficiency is sure to make a difference at the bowser."
