Daimler Consults Ford Over New Engine

Giancarlo Perlas May 28, 2013


The arrival of the new Ford Fiesta is at hand. One of the features of the new car is its 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine which is a product of one of the company’s small overseas powerplant.

The success of the American company in its new engine has caused popular automakers to take notice, including Daimler, according to a report from Autoblog. Then, currently, Daimler is consulting Ford about the specs and other information of its new engine so the company could use the data on the development of its future products like the Smart ForTwo and the Renault Twingo, a product under the Daimler and Renault-Nissan alliance.

In exchange for the information acquired from Ford, Daimler will supply the company with data about its Euro6 stratified lean-burn gasoline engine, which is available in its Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans, said the report.
