Koln, 2. December 2008 – ford optimizes its self-condition: many car diesel should now be more economical and cleaner. This was achieved according to own information, inter alia, by the introduction of a sleep mode for the electrohydraulic power steering epas and a recalibration of the engine control.
The optimized model versions is the c-max with 1.6-liter tdci in the power levels 90 and 109 hp as well as the 136 hp kuga 2×4 with 2.0-liter tdci. In addition, the 2.0-liter tdci engines with 115 and 140 hp in s-max and in the galaxy are now more economical.
The 1.6-liter diesel in the c-max in the should in both power levels still employ 119 g / km co2. The optimized c-max is according to ford now the only model in the segment in which the diesel variants remain below 120 g / km co2 emission. Before that, the self-zunder 124 or 126 g / km. The average diesel consumption for both c-max variants could now be reduced to 4.5 liters per 100 kilometers. Before optimization, it was 0.2 and 0.3 liters more.
Ford kuga 2×4
At the ford kuga 2×4 with 136 hp two-liter self-cord, the fuel consumption was lowered from 6.3 to 6.1 liters to 100 kilometers. Accordingly, the co2 emission value is now 159 instead of 165 g / km co2.
Ford s-max and ford galaxy
The 2.0-liter diesel with 115 or 140 hp of the model series s-max and galaxy have also been improved. The carbon dioxide value is now 159 instead of 164 grams per kilometer at the s-max and 165 grams per kilometer at the galaxy. The fuel consumption of both models decreased from originally 6.2 liters to each 6.0 liter diesel per 100 kilometers, so ford.
