Our renowned TDI engines have long been setting the standards in diesel technology – and with rising fuel costs, we’ve also been working hard to lower fuel consumption, while reducing CO2 emissions. The Crafter engine range reflects this with a choice of four 2.0 litre diesel engines, ranging from 102ps to the range-topping 177ps model – all mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. All engines in the Crafter range are equipped with diesel particulate filters and are designed to deliver the perfect balance of power, torque, flexibility and economy – meaning you’re sure to find an engine that’s perfectly suited to the particular demands of your business.
The Crafter panel van – available with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and a choice of three different drive systems. The 8-speed automatic transmission is the only one in its class that can be combined with three different drive systems - front, rear and our all new 4MOTION model. It has been specially calibrated for the Crafter panel van’s specific driving characteristics, enabling both comfortable and consumption-optimised handling.
