For the past twelve years, Ford Motor Company and PSA Peugeot Citroën have been working together on diesel engines for various public and commercial vehicles. Since the joint venture was put into play, more than 20 million blocks in two displacement families have been made but that partnership will soon change. An announcement was recently made stating that the two companies will begin independent development on the larger, 2.0 liter and above engine family.
According to Ford, the decision was made so that both the Blue Oval and PSA could better meet their future needs as well as new regulations. The change up will affect first step commercial vehicles mid-decade but will have no impact on the smaller family of diesel engines or the currently built powerplants. PSA and Ford should continue on with their joint work on the 1.4 to 1.6 liter diesels as well as the upgrades to fall in-line with the 2014 Euro 6 emissions legislation.
