2-KD Diesel D-4D 2500 cc Engine Toyota Hilux 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 
Displacement: 2494 
Bore x Stroke: 92 x 93.8mm 
Compression ratio: 18.5 to 1

Horse Power: 75Kw @ 3600 rpm
Torque Output: 260 Nm @ 1600

The direct injection engine under the code name ” 2KD-FTV ” with 2494 cc capacity, generates a peak power of 75 kw at 3,600 rpm, a maximum torque of 260 Newton-meter at 1,600-2,400 rpm. for the 4-wheel drive version. For the 2-wheel drive version, the peak power is 75 kw at 3,800 rpm, a maximum torque of 1,400-3,200 Newton-meter at 1,400-3,200 rpm.

2KD-FTV The Most Economical One: The common rail fuel injection produces ultra high pressure which is 8 times more than the pressure of the normal fuel injection system. It can inject much finer fuel mist. This, when combined with 32 bit ECU which controls fuel quantity, valve-timing, and accurate pressure at different engine revolutions, result in the most fuel economy. It is 21% more economical than the old version. It has greater fuel economy than most of its competitors.

2KD-FTV The Most Powerful One: With the 16-valve, double overhead camshaft (DOHC) engine technology, which was formerly available in saloon or sports cars only, and with power from the turbo-charger coupled with the ingenious design, the D4D engine produces maximum torque at a much wider range of speed. This results in maximum utilization of power, whether it is during take off or while taking over, without having to drag the engine revolution to the maximum.

The Pilot Injection System smoothes the running of engine and the ride feels more like a ride in a saloon car. The noise level is only 49 decibels at the idle speed. The Pilot Injection System produces fuel injection in advance before the main injection starts working, reducing Ignition Lag Time and resulting in continuous and complete combustion. Noise from ignition is also reduced.

First released in August 2004, the 2KD-FTV is the 2nd generation of the KD engine with a smaller 2.5 L (2494 cc) straight-4 common rail variable nozzle turbo coupled with a 32-bit ECU and Multi Pilot Injection System, diesel engine. The displacement of this engine is based on the 2 L engine. Bore remains the same 92 mm but stroke is increased to 93.8 mm.

Like 1KD-FTV, it has 16 valves and is a DOHC engine, comes with an intercooler as well (applies on some region). It powers 102 hp (75 kW) at 3400 rpm and 191.7 ft·lbf (260 N·m) of torque at 1600-3600 rpm without an intercooler, 120 hp (88 kW) at 3400 rpm and 239.85 ft·lbf (325 N·m) of torque at 1600-3600 rpm with an intercooler. Compression ratio is 18.5:1. Redline of this engine is 4400 RPM. This engine also uses D-4D Common Rail (Common rail direct fuel injection ) technology. The only technical data changes from the 1KD-FTV to the 2KD-FTV was the bore and the stroke.
