06.04.2006 From the beginning of this month the Fiat Ulysse MPV has become available on the Italian market with a new 120bhp 2.0 Multijet engine and six-speed transmission

From the beginning of this month the Fiat Ulysse MPV has become available on the Italian market with a new 120bhp 2.0-litre Multijet turbodiesel engine coupled up to a six-speed transmission, which replaces the current 109 bhp 2.0-litre unit.

The Fiat Ulysse is part of a long-term 'multi-purpose vehicle' and light commercial vehicle joint venture project that Fiat Auto undertakes with the Peugeot-CitroŽn PSA automotive group. The Ulysse MPV programme also spawns the Lancia Phedra, Peugeot 807 and CitroŽn C8 ranges. The powerplants and mechanicals of the vehicles are engineered by the French carmaker, and the new 1997cc 4-cylinder common-rail turbodiesel is thus christened with the 'Multijet' tag by Fiat.

With a power output of 120 bhp at 4,000 rpm, and maximum torque of 300 Nm at 2,000 rpm, it seamlessly replaces the MPV range's existing 109bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel unit, slotting in just below the larger 2.2-litre version. This new engine is fully compliant with Euro 4 emission regulations. The combination is also now available with a six-speed gearbox.
