Developed specifically for heavy-duty use.

Efficient common rail technology makes the 2.0 l TDI engines for the Crafter particularly economical. And with BlueMotion Technology, fuel consumption can be cut even further.

Common rail TDI engines

For the Crafter we offer 2.0 l TDI engines with common rail technology in four different performance levels. They are powerful, comfortably smooth running engines which burn the fuel efficiently thanks to high-pressure injection. The 120 kW¹ variant is also equipped with twin turbo charges – for dynamic acceleration, even at low engine speeds. All of the vehicles are delivered with diesel particulate filters and a 6-speed manual transmission as standard.

¹ Crafter, 2.0 l BiTDI engine with 120 kW, fuel consumption in l/100 km: urban from 10.7 to 8.2, extra-urban from 7.5 to 6.2, combined from 8.4 to 6.9. CO₂ emissions in g/km: combined from 221 to 181; efficiency classes: C to B.

Crafter with BlueMotion Technology

The start/stop system, including energy management and regenerative braking, is supplemented by other fuel-saving measures such as long final drive ratios and cruise control. Overall, the consumption per engine variant can be reduced by up to 0.6 l/100 km.

Start/stop system

When the start/stop system is activated, it automatically switches off the engine when the driver brakes the vehicle to a standstill, shifts into neutral and releases the clutch. The corresponding display lights up in the instrument cluster. When the driver again operates the clutch, the system restarts the engine. The fuel and cost-saving start/stop system is combined with other innovations: the energy management system switches off consumers not in use in order to prevent breakdowns should this be necessary. Regenerative braking achieves direct fuel savings through a special battery-recharging method and energy recovery during braking. With the help of this package of measures, consumption can be reduced overall by up to 0.3 l per 100 km.

  • Option at extra charge.

Long-distance package

If you have to drive on motorways every day or often cover long overland distances, you can save fuel with the Long-distance package. It includes tyres with optimised rolling resistance, a tyre-pressure-monitoring display, cruise control and a high final drive ratio.

Final drive ratios

The choice of final drive ratio is decisive as to whether the Crafter is optimally suited to its operating conditions. Drivers who frequently travel on motorways or dual carriageways will have different requirements from those who need a vehicle for mountainous terrain. The Crafter is therefore offered with a choice of six final drive ratios¹ ranging from 3.692 : 1 to 5.1 : 1. The higher the ratio, the better the pulling power when driving uphill or when towing a trailer. The smaller the ratio, the less strain is placed on the engine by the engine speed and consequently consumption figures are more favourable. Please refer to the technical data² for information on the final drive ratios available for the individual engines. The wide choice enables you to find the ideal ratio for your Crafter.

Preparation for power take-offs

Engines in all output categories have standard preparation for retrofitting auxiliaries. In addition, conversion kits are available for refrigerant compressors and for 14 V, 28 V and 230 V alternators.
