Ford celebrates 40m engine milestone at Dagenham plant

By / 9 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Ford Dagenham, which has been engineering and manufacturing engines since 1931, now specialises in fuel-efficient diesel engines for Ford’s small, medium, and large car ranges, as well as featuring prominently in Ford’s commercial vehicles.  Over 50% of global Ford diesel engine demand is supplied by Dagenham.

Dagenham-built engines have powered many famous Ford vehicles including the Ford Escort, Cortina, Capri, Granada, and Transit models. Today engines from Ford’s largest UK plant power the best-selling vehicles in Britain: the Ford Fiesta, Ford Focus and Ford Transit.

Joe Greenwell, Ford Britain chairman, said: ‘Dagenham producing 40m engines is a significant milestone for Ford’s biggest UK site.  Ford Dagenham now produces Ford’s most fuel-efficient engine in the 1.6-litre TDCi unit and exports to 12 countries around the world as part of our global “One Ford” strategy. This site is helping to power the UK's sustainable economic recovery.’
