Ford of Europe to use direct- injection engines.

2002 Geneva: Ford of Europe to use direct-injection engines

Automotive News Europe

Ford of Europe will install gasoline direct-injection, spark-ignition engines into some of its smaller vehicles beginning in 2003.

Called Duratec SCi - for Smart Charge injection - the engines feature variable cam timing and will include some turbo-charged variants. Ford is expected to use a 1.1-liter turbo version in the Fusion sport-utility. Details of other models that will use the engines will be released closer to the introduction of those models.

In creating this gasoline-engine family, Ford borrowed extensively from lessons learned in developing its second-generation common-rail diesel engine.

"Our Duratec SCi range will transfer direct-injection principles first seen on diesel engines to a range of small, light gasoline engines," said Martin Leach, Ford of Europe vice president of product development.

On Tuesday, Ford unveiled the production version of the Fusion, which is based on the Fiesta platform. Production begins in April in Cologne, Germany.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
