Ford’s 999cc three-cylinder turbo engine, engineered using the Dayco timing Belt-in-Oil system for both the primary and oil pump drives, has won the sub 1-litre category while three additional engines built with Dayco engine components won their respective categories.
Paul DiLisio, Senior Vice President of Global Automotive and Industrial OE Sales for Dayco, said: “The timing Belt-in-Oil, invented by Dayco and in series production since 2007, weighs less, has lower stretch, reduces friction and is quieter than traditional chain-drive components.
“For our customers, such as Ford, this translates into higher engine performance, lower emissions and improved fuel economy.”
Panellists judged each engine using criteria on fuel economy, smoothness, performance, noise and drivability.
Additional Dayco engine products are also utilised on the winning engines of the 1-litre to 1.4-litre, above 4-litre and Performance Engine categories.
In total, Dayco engine products and systems are in use on more than 25 finalist engines, including those of Ford, Volkswagen, Ferrari, Fiat, Audi, BMW and PSA.
