New V8 diesel bound for Ford group cars
- Ford V8 diesel built at Dagenham
- Likely to power Jaguar and Land Rover models
- May also appear in Peugeot/Citroen cars
A powerful new Ford V8 diesel with more than 270bhp is on the way for a range of marques, including Jaguar and Land Rover.
The 3.6-litre engine began production this week at Ford's Dagenham plant and will be fitted to an extended family of cars.
As well as powering some top-end Fords, the engine will slot models built by other Ford-owned brands. Expect it to be available in the Jaguar S-type and XJ, Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport by the end of the year.
However, you won't find it in any Volvo, which is also owned by Ford, but a development tie-in with PSA Peugeot Citroen means it may be available in the Peugeot 407 Coupe and Citroen C6.
