In the U.S., apparently, has decided to follow the current trend, which provides a reduction in fuel consumption and harmful emissions, it is very strange, for example, the Ford pickup received the diesel VW engine volume of 1.9 liters.
The release of this “Quartet” was carried out from 1991 to 2010 and was established on such cars by the German brand as the Polo, Golf and Passat. This powerplant gave from 68 to 110 HP and was considered indestructible, and for this reason American named Gary chose him to replace the old diesel-row “six” own models of the F-100.
German powerplant operates together with a Japanese 5-speed manual transmission from Toyota. According to the owner of the truck, the car was very reliable for the 6 years of ownership only broke the tensioner, belts and relays. Currently the mileage is approximately equal to 233 000 km Pickup truck capable of accelerating to 130 km/h and consumes approximately 7.1 liters of diesel per 100 km.
To compensate for the loss of weight of the old petrol V6, the front springs are lowered by 10 cm, the driveshaft is made to order. Power steering he never had, all brakes are drum. The only problem with this F-100 is its body, or rather, his condition. It was painted 6 years ago, but the owner honestly say that from the moment the body is covered with corrosion. A pickup truck with a German powerplant and Japanese transmission, can be bought for $ 9,000 on eBay (about 699 thousand rubles).
