Peugeot 4007 features an advanced 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine

Vehicle Specs
Manufacturer Peugeot
Model 4007
Engine 2.2 turbodiesel
Power 115kW
Torque 380Nm

The 4007 name uses the double-zero identity as it represents another new concept in the development of Peugeot's model range. The '4' represents its size within the Peugeot range and the '7' specifies its generation.

It was styled at Peugeot's design centre, based at Vélizy in France.

Peugeot has equipped the 4007 with its latest 2.2-litre diesel engine, featuring its technologically advanced Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) for the best combination of performance, economy and environmental protection.

The 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine features direct common-rail injection and is the result of the partnership with the Ford Motor Group. It develops 115kW and 380Nm of torque, and is capable of using a 30% mixture of diesel biofuel, without any modifications.

The engine is combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

According to Peugeot the 4007 is equipped with electronic control management on all four driven wheels.

The system has been designed to increase both the driver's confidence and the vehicle dynamics for on-road driving behaviour.

The steering, suspension, four-wheel-drive system, brakes and tyres have all been developed to achieve maximum efficiency. The 4007 continues Peugeot's reputation for producing engaging cars with dynamic and safe road characteristics.
