1KD-FTV ENGINE FOR 3000 CC TOYOTA HILUX VIGO, 3000 CC TOYOTA FORTUNER AND 3000 CC TOYOTA PRADO
This versatile engine was introduced in 2003 in the then new Toyota Prado and is now a part of 3.0 Toyota Hilux Vigo, Toyota Hiace and Toyota's best selling SUV Toyota Fortuner. Its specifications are:
Bore x Stroke: 97.0 x 103.0 mm
Displacement: 2982 cc
Power: 120 kW , 163 HP DIN @ 3,400 rpm;
Torque 343 Nm @ 1,600 rpm
All 3000 cc (actually 2982) Vigos come with this excellent engine. F in FT stands for "economical" (don't ask me how) twin cam (narrow angle, around 22 degrees) and T for turbocharged.
COMMONRAIL in D-4D Engine
All internal combustion engines need two key ingredients to operate: air and fuel. The precise delivery of these ingredients is what makes clean and powerful combustion possible. If you can get a large amount of air pumped in you increase the power of the engine and if you get large amount of fuel pumped in as well the power is enhanced even further. Turbochargers accomplish the first goal by helping deliver copious amounts of air to help diesels operate cleanly, efficiently and powerfully, commonrail accomplishes the second. High fuel pressure produces a fine mist of fuel that burns better and cleaner in the combustion chamber. Not only that, but for each combustion cycle, the common rail allows up to five injections per cycle. The driver benefits as lower fuel consumption (improved mileage), better engine performance and less noise compared with older diesels.
Toyota D-4D diesel Engine is an efficient turbo intercooler engine in both 1-KD and 2-KD forms.
2KD-FTV ENGINE FOR 2500 CC 2.5 L TOYOTA HILUX VIGO, Toyota FortuneR
Most Vigo 2500 cc models come with a 2KD-FTV engine. It is a 16 valve Common Rail, Direct Injection Turbo DOHC Diesel Engine. Its specifications are:-
Type: 2.5 liter 4 cylinder D4-D diesel
Bore x Stroke: 92 x 93.8mm
Compression ratio: 18.5 to 1
Horse Power: 75Kw @ 3600 rpm
Torque Output: 260 Nm @ 1600
D4-D Diesel Engine 1KD-FTV and 2KD-FTV in Toyota Hilux, Toyota Prado, TOyota Fortuner
Toyota's legendary Diesel engine D4D engine is a feat of engineering marvel. What makes Toyota Hilux Vigo, Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Fortuner outstanding is this D4D engine.
The secret of the Toyota D-4D’s outstanding performance is an electronic control unit ECU that accurately balances fuel injection pressure, timing and volume according to how the car is driven and the demands being made on the engine.
Using Piezo-electric injectors, common rail technology injects finely atomised fuel at high pressure directly into the combustion chamber, including a small amount of fuel just before the main fuel load ignites. This ‘pilot burn’ lowers the explosive force of the main combustion process and goes a long way to reduce the noise and vibration formerly associated with diesel engines.
- The engine always works at maximum efficiency
- Power and torque optimised
- Excellent fuel economy
