FORD’s all-new Transit full-size van, which goes on sale in late 2013, will be offered with a new, clean-running 3.2-liter Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel engine. The new diesel, Ford’s second in North America, already has established a proven record for reliability, durability and refinement in the global Ford Ranger truck sold in world markets. “The 3.2-liter Power Stroke engine has been developed and proven globally to deliver a world-class combination of power, fuel economy and refinement,” said Joe Bakaj, Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering. Like the larger 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 offered in Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks, the fuel system has been tailored and calibrated for combustion efficiency. It enables the newest Power Stroke to achieve exceptional fuel economy ratings without affecting power levels.
