Peugeot 807 gets new engine
A new 2.2 litre HDi DPFS 125 kW (≈ 170 bhp) diesel engine has just been introduced to become the top of the range HDi diesel model for the 807. It reinforces further the dynamic capabilities of the range which is constantly being developed and improved.
This engine, which is fitted with twin turbo-chargers, can be already found powering the 407 and the 607, but sets itself apart from the crowd through its use of high technology. This engine provides a level of performance and driveability which is more frequently found in higher capacity engines, while still providing good fuel consumption (7.2 litres per 100 km) and reduced CO2 emissions (191 g/km).
With the introduction of this new HDi diesel engine, the range of power trains available in the 807 - which was updated last year with the introduction of the 2.0 litre HDi DPFS 88 and 100 kW (120 and 136 bhp) - now looks like this:
- 2,0 litre 16v HDi DPFS 88 kW (≈ 120 bhp), 300 Nm, 6-speed manual gearbox,
- 2.0 litre 16v HDi DPFS 100 kW (≈ 136 bhp), 320-340 Nm, 6-speed manual gearbox,
- 2.2 litre 16v HDi DPFS 125 kW (≈ 170 bhp), 370 Nm, 6-speed manual gearbox.
This new engine will also be available next spring, in some countries, with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The petrol range is made up of two models:
- 2.0 litre 16v 103 kW (≈ 141 bhp), 200 Nm, manual gearbox
- 2.0 litre 16v 103 kW (≈ 141 bhp), 200 Nm, automatic gearbox
This new 2.2 litre HDi DPFS engine is the result of the fourth phase of the co-operation between PSA Peugeot Citroën and the Ford Motor Company. It completes the HDi range of engines successfully developed in partnership since signing the co-operation agreement in 1998.
The four cylinder 2,179 cm3 engine has a sixteen valve cylinder head with twin overhead camshafts. It has a maximum power of 125 kW at 4,000 rpm and a generous maximum torque of 370 Nm at 1,500 rpm.
The torque and driveability at low engine speeds are particularly impressive, with the engine producing a torque of 200 Nm at 1,000 rpm and 280 Nm at 1,250 rpm.
The operating range is also very wide, with a good spread of available torque at all engine speeds (with over 355 Nm at 3,000 rpm).
A new type of combustion chamber, a third generation common rail injection system with an increased injection pressure of 1,800 bar and the fitment of parallel sequential twin turbochargers are the main technological innovations of this engine.
Combining this technology brings excellent driveability to the 807 along with a convenience well suited to meeting the needs of a demanding customer base from all walks of life.
In France, this new engine is available in the Navteq version for 38,400 Euros.
It is worth noting that, within the past few weeks, the 807 has also benefited from the fitment of the new RT4 telematic system. Linked to a colour 3D screen and grouping together audio, GSM, GPS and Peugeot Emergency services, it includes a 30 GB hard disk enabling it to host maps covering the whole of Europe and to save up to 180 hours of music in MP3 format.
