The second phase of Ford’s diesel engine partnership with PSA will bear fruit across Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo when the revised version of the Peugeot-Citroën 2.2 HDi hits the market.

The Land Rover Freelander will be first to benefit in 2006, when the supply deal for the BMW Td4 diesel comes to an end. The same engine should also go into the next-generation S-type in 2007 and X-type in ’08, and Volvo is also looking at a range of applications. The current 2.2 HDi is used in the Peugeot 607 and 807, and the Citroën C5 and C8. Power will jump from 136bhp to 156bhp – with similar gains in torque expected from the current 235lb ft. The engine is different to Ford’s own 2.2 diesel, going into the Mondeo later this year.
