Ford Transit: he inherited the V6 EcoBoost
The production of new large van Jig Transit rear propulsion begin in North America in 2013, and this car will endows the V6 EcoBoost ® 3.5-liter Ford, which will provide unbeatable combination of power and economy of fuel.
The EcoBoost engine is an essential element of the strategy aimed at providing Ford powerplant was the cutting edge of technology, high performance groups and reduced cylinder that offer exceptional fuel economy and uncompromised performance.
The next generation Transit will be faithful to the reputation of hard drive vehicles of the Ford E Series, in addition to achieve economies of additional fuel at least 25%, made possible in part by the clever weight reductions totaling least 136 kg (300 lb), compared to similar vans Serie E.
When the all-new Ford Transit commercial van will debut in North America in 2013, it will be the team V6 EcoBoost ® premium efficient 3.5-liter Ford to better meet the needs of customers of commercial trucks.
The EcoBoost V6 3.5L engine the new Transit propulsion will be a perfect complement to the technology and driving dynamics peak provided for the van, making it an ideal vehicle for replacement for venerable commercial vans and tourism Serie E Ford in North America.
"The new Ford Transit commercial van will provide all the performance and capacity that customers get with current vehicles in Serie E, but will benefit in addition to better fuel economy and cost of using potentially lower thanks EcoBoost engine available with the vehicle, "stated Tim Stoehr, Director of Marketing - Commercial Vehicles Ford Motor Company. "This engine has revolutionized the truck segment of a half-ton for F-150, and we hope it will produce the same results in the niche of commercial vans. "
The new Transit will go beyond the reputation of executioners exceptional work vehicles of the Ford E Series. This vehicle will realize additional fuel savings of at least 25% compared to similar vans Serie E. These will be made possible in part by reductions of smart weight that will subtract at least 136 kg (300 pounds ). This means that customers can save thousands of dollars in cost savings thanks to the use of fuel.
The EcoBoost engine is an essential element of the strategy is to offer Ford powertrains at the cutting edge of technology, high performance and reduced cylinder that deliver exceptional fuel economy and uncompromised performance for millions of drivers worldwide. By 2013, Ford plans to produce up to 1.5 million EcoBoost engines globally. These will equip a wide variety of vehicles ranging from small cars to trucks.
Characteristics of EcoBoost engines:
A direct injection fuel system high pressure with a single power rail that delivers a precise amount of gasoline has an exact place for a quick and full combustion.
Turbocharging creates a denser air and fuel mixture in each cylinder.
Special pistons with optimized center heads to improve the efficiency of combustion. These pistons are also cooled in oil, which reduces the internal temperature of the cylinders.
Low CO2 emissions and excellent fuel economy compared to other V8 engines of the same power.
The EcoBoost V6 3.5L engine available for F-150 Ford has had a successful year in 2011, exceeding 100,000 sales in less than one year on the market. F-150 trucks equipped EcoBoost engine now account for over 40% of retail sales of F-150. In 2011, Ford Canada sold 24,240 F-150 EcoBoost engine teams, which represents more than 40% of total sales.
Direct injection gasoline
One of the key elements of the reduced consumption of the EcoBoost engine is gasoline direct injection. This system accurately injects a fine mist of fuel directly into each cylinder to optimize performance, thus reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emission. Unlike fuel-injection engines in the inlet, which spray fuel into the intake system before his arrival in the combustion chamber, the direct injection system delivers fuel to the precise location of the cylinder or it must be used, thus ensuring optimum combustion.
An injector high pressure up on the side of each cylinder heads fuel directly into the cylinder adjacent to a spark plug has high intensity, next intake valves and exhaust. Fuel is sprayed into the cylinders at pressures of up to 976 kg (2,150 pounds) per square inch, which is about 35 times more intense than injection into the intake ports.
Space for loading and transportation of persons
The current generation Transit van is the vehicle which best sell in Europe. Ford has sold more than six million Transit on five continents since its initial launch in 1965. Transit is currently available to customers worldwide in a variety of frame and configurations for passengers and cargo with a choice of efficient diesel engines . In 2010, 6000 000th Transit rolled off the assembly line in Turkey. Designed as the first pan-European Ford product in the mid-1960s, the Transit of the next generation will become a global asset thanks to large rear-wheel drive versions template offered in the United States.
To prepare a production in the United States by 2013, Ford has invested $ 1.1 billion in its assembly plant in Kansas City, or the Transit and F-150 trucks will be manufactured.
