Ford’s new three-cylinder petrol engine to find its way into Aspire and Figo

Ford, on Thursday, unveiled a new three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine. This is a Ti-VCT unit and has been tuned to produce 120bhp and 150Nm of torque. It’s a new engine developed in India and is being produced at the American automaker’s plant in Sanand, Gujrat.

This engine produces an additional 10bhp of power and 10Nm of torque as compared to the current four-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine. It will replace the four-cylinder unit in all models, starting with the new EcoSport that will be launched in India later this year. This engine has been designed to work with manual and automatic transmissions that the automaker offers in India. 

This means it will also find its way into the Figo hatchback and Aspire compact sedan as both the vehicles use this engine for their petrol automatic versions which make use of six-speed dual clutch AT units.

Ford's future plan to plonk this engine into the Aspire and Figo will make them most powerful petrol automatic vehicles in both their individual classes.
