JTD roll-out puts Fiat on the common rail road

FIAT has taken the first steps towards having common rail diesel engines across its commercial vehicle range with the announcement of a JTD version of the Scudo. A 2.0-litre common rail unit made its debut under the bonnet of a Scudo Combi and the model will be on sale in the early summer. It will be followed by further Scudo van and platform cab versions later this year.

Larger capacity JTD common rail units will also be phased in to the revised Ducato range. Steve Barker, LCV operations manager for Fiat Auto, said: 'All of our engines are going to be changed and they will be phased in starting from the end of this year.

'They will all be common rail units and will offer weight saving of between 30kg and 50kg over the old engines.'
