Euro 5 and EEV engines
New Daily benefits from the innovative technology made available by sister company, FPT Industrial, in the guise of its 2.3 and 3 litre engines, its class leading 5 and 6 speed transmissions, including the Agile automated 6 speed transmission, and its rear drive axle with a selection of axle ratios to ensure the very best in terms of performance, economy and respect for the environment.
The flag-ship of the New Daily drive train is the FPT Industrial Euro 5, 3 litre Twin Turbo Diesel engine developing a class leading power of 205 cv (150 kW) and a maximum torque of 470 Nm., the most powerful engine in its sector. With conventional post turbocharger charge cooling, this new two stage turbocharger system includes an intermediate stage charge cooler between the first stage and the second resulting in considerable efficiency and performance benefits. The engine uses a common rail fuel injection system with piezoelectric actuators, allowing the optimisation of the combustion process and reducing pollutant emissions and fuel consumption.
This 3 litre Diesel engine is also available at two further ratings: 170 cv (125 kW), 400 Nm version employing a new high efficiency VGT (variable geometry turbocharger) and at 146 cv (107 kW), 350 Nm, employing a fixed geometry turbocharger with waste-gate valve, both ratings meeting the Euro 5 emissions standard. Homologated according to the heavy duty regime to the EEV (Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle) standard, there are three FPT Industrial engines available: 170 cv (125 kW) with maximum torque of 400 Nm with two stage turbocharger, a new 146 cv (107 kW) variant with 370 Nm of torque, thanks to its new variable geometry turbocharger and the Natural Power variant for use with natural gas, rated at 136 cv (100 kW), already very well respected for its incredibly low exhaust tail-pipe emissions that are already within the Euro VI heavy duty exhaust emission limits that will enter into force in 2014.
The new FPT Industrial 2.3 litre Euro 5 Diesel engine rated at 146 cv (107 kW) and peak torque of 350 Nm features the new Multijet II common rail multi event fuel injection system that, with up to 8 injection events per cycle, allows class leading injection rate shape profiling to allow very low engine noise, reduced engine-out emissions and outstanding fuel economy.
The engine is also available at ratings of 106 cv (78 kW) with a maximum torque of 270 Nm and 126 cv (93 kW) with an increased maximum torque of 320 Nm. Both of these engines use a fixed geometry turbocharger with waste-gate valve.
All FPT Industrial Diesel engines employ the new advanced exhaust gas recirculation with enhanced electrical EGR mixing, ensuring homogeneous gas distribution among the engine cylinders and exhaust after-treatment by means of an oxidising catalyst and Diesel particulate filter.
The new Euro 5 2.3 litre engines are available with Start & Stop, the GSI (Gear Shift Indicator) and new 6 speed transmissions, features that allow a fuel consumption and CO2 emission saving of up to 10%.
The New Daily transmissions feature two new aspects: an entirely new 6-speed transmission for the 2.3 litre version and a specific 6 speed version for the new 3 litre engine rated at 205 cv (150 kW) and 470 Nm of torque, both characterised by the double ratios overdrive for maximum fuel economy. For urban missions, the Agile automated 6 speed transmission is available. The Agile transmission selects the correct gear based on the engine speed and load, reducing driver fatigue and component wear. It can be used in both fully automatic and sequential modes.
The choice of technological solutions with the New Daily serves to obtain both high-performance, fuel economy and respect for the environment.
