Update on the common diesel engine cooperation between Ford and PSA Peugeot Citroën
Ford and PSA Peugeot Citroën today provided an update on their diesel engine cooperation, which has enabled the production of more than 20 million engines in two displacement families (1.4-litre to 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre and above) over the past 12 years.
Concerning the second engine family, the two companies have decided to independently develop and manufacture their larger diesel engines (2.0-litre and above) to meet their future needs as well as new regulations. This decision has no impact on the current production of the existing jointly-developed diesel engines or the derivatives planned for Euro 6 emissions legislation which comes into effect from 2014. The decision will only affect as a first step commercial vehicles from mid-decade.
