Dacia is introducing a new generation of its diesel engines on the Duster, which feature the latest systems for reducing polluting emissions. Renamed for the occasion “Blue dCi”, these new engines guarantee increased performance and optimized consumption at attractive prices.
The new “Blue dCi” engines feature the latest systems for reducing polluting emissions. Located in the exhaust line, the oxidation catalytic converter now includes Selective Catalytic Reduction technology (SCR). Operating with a urea-based solution (Adblue) this technology also eliminates more nitrogen dioxide emissions (NOx) and provides improved engine efficiency and performance.
In addition to the SCR system, the dCi 95 and 115 operate with a new air-water exchanger, a higher injection pressure (2,000 bars) and new gearbox ratios. These evolutions provide:
A 5 hp increase in power;
30 N·m (240 N·m at 1750 rpm) of additional torque for the Blue dCi 95; and
Faster 0 to 100 km/h gaining more than 1 second on both versions.
Consumption and emissions of these two engines remain controlled at 115g of CO2 (NEDC BT) and 4.4L/100 km (53.4 mpg US) in the mixed cycle (data in the course of certification).
The Blue dCi will be rolled-out over the entire Dacia range in the next few weeks (including the Duster 4-wheel drive).
