LDV Doubles MAXUS Engine Variants PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 27 April 2007

The Commercial Vehicle Show sees LDV double the engine variants available for its MAXUS range with the launch of a further two new engine ratings.

To extend the power range, a 135 Ps unit is added. This offers improved driveability and acceleration at lower speeds and offers increased torque at higher speeds for more confident overtaking. The 135 PS unit is available as an option on all van and mpt vehicles and will be available on chassis cab vehicles from launch. ABS braking and EBD are fitted as standard with the 135 PS engine.

To refine the driving experience within LDV’s expanding MAXUS minibus range, a 105 Ps power unit is added. This replaces the 95 Ps engine in the minibus range only and offers improved driveability and refinement for minibus customers.

James Billingham, the head of LDV’s product development group, says the two new engine ratings complement the existing 120 Ps engine, available in all vehicle types, and the 95 PS engine, which is available on all vehicles except the minibus range.

“These new engine types are the result of a multi-million pound development programme between LDV and our engine supply partner VM Motori to produce a range of engines to meet Euro 4 Engine Emissions legislation,” said James.

LDV has achieved Euro 4 through:

  • Introduction of the latest generation Bosch 1600 bar common rail fuel injection system
  • Utilising Bosch IMA Injector Matching Technology
  • Redesign of the air intake and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems
  • Exhaust and catalyst development
  • Engine calibration
