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
