Details of Tata Harrier's 2.0L KRYOTEC diesel engine revealed

  •  

While the launch of the Tata Harrier is still months away, Tata Motors has revealed the details of the KRYOTEC diesel engine that will power its new SUV.

The 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder KRYOTEC diesel engine is derived from Fiat's 2.0-litre Multijet engine. It comes with an electronically controlled variable geometry turbocharger (eVGT) and exhaust gas re-circulation (EGR). The engine has a Low Friction Valve Train Architecture and comes with Multi Drive Modes combined with Terrain Response Modes of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). 

While Tata hasn't revealed the power and torque figures of the 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine, rumours suggest that it is likely to make around 140 BHP and is expected to be offered with a choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. A 170 BHP version of the same engine is likely to be offered on the 7-seater version of the Harrier.

The new Tata Harrier is expected to debut in early 2019.
