Transit van to get a 5cycl, 3.2 "Powerstroke"

December 09, 2012 / By Edward A. Sanchez







As soon as Ford announced its 2014 Transit would be offered with a diesel option, speculation ran rampant as to which diesel engine in its global portfolio would find its way under the hood. But consensus quickly settled on the 3.2-liter Duratorq five-cylinder diesel used in the European-spec Transit, as well as in the top-level T6 Ranger.

Today, we have official confirmation that a version of that engine will be under the hoods of 2014 Transit models equipped with the diesel engine. The relatively unknown Duratorq brand in the U.S., which coincidentally sounds suspiciously close to a domestic rival's diesel brand name, has been dropped in favor of the more widely-recognized Power Stroke brand, although the twin-cam, DOHC engine shares no parts in common with the similarly-named 6.7-liter V-8 diesel found in Super Duty models.







The engine has an iron block and aluminum head, and features piezoelectric injectors with a maximum fuel pressure of 26,100 psi, a variable-nozzle turbocharger with a maximum impeller speed of 197,800 rpm, piston underside oil jets, and a water-cooled exhaust gas recirculation system. The engine is assembled in Ford's Struandale Engine Plant in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and will be shipped to Ford's Kansas City Assembly plant, where the North American-spec Transit will be manufactured.

To help meet strict EPA emissions standards for diesels, the 3.2-liter Power Stroke will have a fluid-based selective catalyst reduction system when it comes stateside. Official output for the engine in North American trim has not yet been released, but power output for the European version of the engine is 197 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque. For comparison, the 3.0-liter Bluetec V-6 diesel in the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter currently produces 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, the Transit's closest marketplace rival.

The engine will be mated exclusively to Ford's 6R80 six-speed automatic transmission, which will also be behind the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. The EcoBoost and Power Stroke are the only two officially-announced engines for the Transit, but most believe the base engine will be Ford's 3.7-liter V-6 that serves as the base engine in the F-150 pickup.
