International Engine of the Year Award Winner Made with Dayco Products
July 8, 2015—Dayco announced today an engine built with Dayco products and systems has been named an International Engine of the Year Award winner for the fourth year in a row.
Ford’s 999cc three-cylinder turbo engine, engineered using the Dayco Timing Belt-in-Oil system for both the primary and oil pump drives, won the Sub 1-Liter category. Three additional engines built with engine components from Dayco won their respective categories.
“Congratulations to Ford, PSA and Ferrari on their continued success at the International Engine of the Year Awards, and thank you for trusting in Dayco to help deliver these accolades,” said Paul DiLisio, senior vice president of global automotive and industrial OE sales for Dayco. “The Timing Belt-in-Oil, invented by Dayco and in series production since 2007, weighs less, has lower stretch, reduces friction and is quieter than traditional chain-drive components. For our customers, such as Ford, this translates into higher engine performance, lower emissions and improved fuel economy.”
The 2015 International Engine of Year Awards jury was made up of 65 respected motoring journalists from 31 countries. The 12 award winners were selected using criteria such as fuel economy, smoothness, performance, noise and drivability.
Additional Dayco engine products were also utilized on the winning engines of the 1-Liter to 1.4-Liter, Above 4-liter and Performance Engine categories. These winners include the PSA Peugeot Citroen 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbo and Ferrari 4.5-liter V8 engines. In total, Dayco engine products and systems were used on more than 25 finalist engines, including those of Ford, Volkswagen, Ferrari, Fiat, Audi, BMW and PSA.
