Ford Menyelesaikan Kes Tuntutan Fiesta Dan Focus Yang Dilengkapi DCT Di Amerika Syarikat

Pada awal tahun 2010, Ford memperkenalkan kotak gear automatik dual-clutch 6-kelajuan yang canggih untuk model Fiesta dan Focus mereka secara global. Apa yang bermula sebagai karya kejuruteraan kecil yang hebat kini telah kembali menghantui syarikat itu. Ford telah memutuskan untuk menyelesaikan tuntutan tindakan kelas dengan hampir 2 juta pemilik kenderaan di Amerika Syarikat yang mengalami masalah dengan DPS6 PowerShift DCT. Tiada penyelesaian disediakan untuk pemilik di luar A.S., sejauh mana yang kita tahu.

Jurucakap Ford berkata syarikat yakin penyelesaian itu “adil dan munasabah”. Penyelesaian ini datang berikutan laporan yang luas oleh Detroit Free Press mengenai perkembangan dan penempatan gearbox.

Syarikat itu perlu mengetepikan penggantian tunai sebanyak $30 juta. Tambahan pula, Ford telah mendedahkan bahawa ia telah membelanjakan $47 juta untuk 2,666 pembelian balik kenderaan sejak 2017 untuk kereta dengan isu kotak gear ini.

Pengaduan rasmi terhadap Fokus 2012-16 dan Fiesta 2011-16 menyatakan bahawa kereta-kereta itu dilengkapi dengan transmisi yang cenderung kepada “menggeletar, tergelincir, melompat-lompat, jengkel, teragak-agak sewaktu menukar gear, haus dalaman yang pramatang, lambat menurun gear, dan pecutan secara tiba-tiba atau lambat. “

Fiesta

An available all-new North American industry-exclusive PowerShift six-speed automatic transmission combines the responsive performance and fuel economy of a manual transmission with the convenience of a traditional automatic in one advanced, dual dry-clutch package.

“Fuel economy leaders have traditionally been manual shift models,” said Pierro Aversa, team leader for transmissions. “Ford Fiesta changes the game by offering an advanced PowerShift six-speed automatic that delivers maximum fuel economy.”

Twin internal clutches keep the PowerShift in constant mesh, always optimizing for maximum responsiveness or fuel efficiency, depending on input received from the driver’s foot on the accelerator pedal.

This “dry” transmission operates with sealed internal lubrication, reducing internal friction and adding to Ford Fiesta fuel economy. The lack of pumps and hoses reduces under-hood complexity, saves weight and also contributes to fuel efficiency.

PowerShift has been proven in Ford’s European market and will redefine North American small car segment expectations for responsive shifting and fuel efficiency.

FOCUS

Like its smaller counterpart, the 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel has been comprehensively re-engineered to deliver increased power and torque to the diesel line-up in the Ford Focus, but not at the expense of fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

Paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, the 2.0-litre TDCi is available in 140 PS and 163 PS ratings, while the Focus can also be specified with the high-efficiency Ford PowerShift 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with the 115 PS, 140 PS and 163 PS versions of the engine.

For the North American market, and selected other markets which favour petrol powertrains, the new Focus is fitted with a completely new 160 PS 2.0-litre petrol engine which combines high-pressure direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing for enhanced performance and fuel efficiency.

The new 2.0-litre DI Ti-VCT engine is up to 20 horsepower more powerful than the current 2.0 Duratec I-4 unit featured in the North American Ford Focus, while contributing to projected fuel economy gains of more than 10 per cent.

To maximise its performance and economy advantage, the 2.0-litre DI Ti-VCT engine is mated with the latest dry-clutch six-speed Ford PowerShift automatic transmission.With its high-efficiency dual dry-clutch design, the transmission alone can help to reduce fuel consumption by up to 9 per cent compared to a traditional four-speed automatic.
