Ford launches all-new 1.5-litre Ti-VCT Petrol Engine

5 Oct 2017

Ford India unveiled its all-new 1.5-litre Ti-VCT, three-cylinder petrol engine for customers in India and around the world.  Ford India’s engine factory at Sanand, Gujarat will take the lead in manufacturing this new family of petrol engines, both for domestic production as well as exports across the world. Ford’s engineering team in India has steered the development of the new engine with key insights at every stage – from design, development to production. The engine will also have more than 80% parts sourced from Indian suppliers, informed Anurag Mehrotra, President and Managing Director of Ford India.
Ford’s latest 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine is powered by 3-Cylinders along with state-of-the-art technical solutions for improved performance and efficiency while reducing size, weight and friction.
The all-new 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol engine will stay true to Ford’s DNA of being fun-to-drive while delivering improved fuel efficiency and a lower carbon footprint. The engine will be introduced on New EcoSport later this year. (EOIC)
