New engines, better economy and quality for 1999 Frontera
24/07/1998 in NEWS
Out go the 2.0i and 2.5 TDS engines, while the 2.2i petrol engine has been refined. It is joined by a new 2.2-litre ECOTEC turbodiesel and an improved version of the 3.2-litre V6 engine used in the Monterey, along with automatic transmission for the first time.
The new 12-model Frontera range will feature Sport (three-door) and five-door Estate models with specification and prices announced closer to the launch date. The new model is more rigid and more durable than the out-going model, but lighter, and bodyshell styling changes give the 4x4 a more muscular appearance and increased fuel economy. The vehicle sits on wider front and rear tracks and the Sport wheelbase has been extended. An extra window improves visibility and safety.
