Ford and PSA Peugeot Citroen Large Diesel Engines Tie-Up Ends
text size: A- A+
The carmakers explained that the decision wasn’t related with the recent tie up between PSA Peugeot Citroen and GM, but we beg to differ. The two parties - PSA and GM, had made a joint statement saying their alliance’s goal is to shape platforms and components, together with the creation of a joint venture that will be able to buy components and materials at better prices. Clearly they didn’t manage to reach an agreement regarding the large diesel engines, so the Ford Group and the PSA Peugeot-Citroen decided to end the cooperation.
Until now, Ford and PSA Peugeot-Citroen developed the 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0-litre diesel engines. Ford and PSA will now create their own 2.0-liters and above powerplants, but will continue to work together on smaller units.
