Daimler and Ford working on 3-cylinder engine project
Daimler has strengthened its ties with the Ford Motor Co. after consulting with Ford during the development of a 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Daimler is building the new engine with Renault for use in the French automaker’s next Twingo minicar and in the German company’s new Smart ForTwo. Ford fits its turbocharged 3-cylinder 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol direct-injection engine in models such as the Focus and C-Max compacts as well as the Fiesta and B-Max subcompacts. The engine has won numerous awards for its performance and low emissions. This relationship also sees Ford getting in return more information about Mercedes’ Euro6 stratified lean-burn petrol engines. A 4-cylinder unit is currently available in the updated E-class sedan.
