TDCI 2007 TO 2016

FOUR-CYLIN­DER Ford TDCI turbo-diesel (bor­rowed from the Tran­sit van) matched to a six-speed gear­box and an all-new dash­board were all part of 2007’s ma­jor re­vamp. The loss of front air vents and the dis­tinc­tive humped bon­net aren’t to ev­ery­one’s taste – and not ev­ery­body loves the trans­mis­sion ei­ther – but the bril­liant off-road abil­ity re­mains. The orig­i­nal 2.4-litre en­gine was re­placed for 2012 with a new 2.2-litre unit with bet­ter emis­sions. Sadly pro­duc­tion has now ended. BUYER’S TIP: Prices (and thefts) keep go­ing up and up. SPECIFICATIONS

2007-2012: 2.4-litre four-cylin­der turbo diesel, 122 bhp, 221 lb-ft torque. 2012-on: 2.2-litre four-cylin­der turbo diesel, 122 bhp, 265 lb-ft torque. Six-speed MT85 gear­box, per­ma­nent four-wheel drive.
