Why Buy a Diesel?
Diesels are our obsession. We know them. We love them. We live them.
Ssangyong is the only automotive manufacturer in Australia that offers an exclusively eco-aware diesel and
turbo diesel powered range and our passion for diesels is an obsession.
We know them. We love them. We live them.
This alone gives
Ssangyong an edge over other brands, but when coupled with a proud history of technological, styling and performance excellence - the advantage speaks for itself.
Ssangyong in Australia is committed to providing top quality diesel engines in all
People Mover and
Utes and utility vehicles. It utilises the advanced Delphi Direct Acting Diesel Common Rail System in every model in Australia coupled with an advanced Diesel Particulate Filter system, which was launched in the Kyron and Rexton models in 2009, soon to be progressively rolled into all models.
The Delphi Direct Acting Diesel Common Rail System is an advanced fuel injection system that features an innovative injection technology. The injector needle is set in motion directly by a piezo ceramic actuator, rather than being moved via an electro-hydraulic circuit. This enables the injector to spray fuel into the combustion chamber faster and with much improved spray atomization and accuracy compared with current diesel fuel injection technologies. The result is a considerable reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions compared to conventional injection systems (approximately 30 percent less) and more torque and power for better drivability compared to conventional injection systems (approximately 10 percent).
Other major elements of the Delphi Direct Acting Diesel Common Rail System include:
Tubular common rail with high pressure valve (up to 2000 bar)
High pressure, modular pump (0.6 to 1.2 cm3/rev) with integrated inlet metering valve, pressure limiter, temperature sensor, and transfer pump
Electronic control unit (ECU) with 32-bit processor
Benefits of the System
Improved injection fuel atomization and speed to help reduce emissions and engine noise, while providing unequalled driving performance
No return flow improves efficiency, enables pump downsizing, and eliminates the need for a return flow fuel cooler
Multiple injection capability
Small, accurate, and stable delivery of fuel quantity during the life of the vehicle for consistent low emissions
Flexibility in the choice of after-treatment devices
Ssangyong's high pressure modular diesel fuel pump and Delphi's direct acting common rail enable operation up to 2000 bar
The exclusive Flexible Injection Waveform Control for unprecedented combustion process capability - this ECU feature allows direct control of the needle lift in the nozzle and, therefore, provides direct control of the rate of injection into the combustion chamber.
