Dayco plays part in engine awards


Dayco is a leading engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries and the close relationships it has forged with the research and development departments of many of Europe’s vehicle manufacturers (VMs) is clear to see in the latest International Engine of the Year Awards, presented by Engine Technology International Magazine.

Ford’s innovative, multiple award-winning, 999cc three-cylinder turbo, which features in models such as the Fiesta, Focus, C-Max and Mondeo, was again crowned winner of the Sub 150PS category, while the VW 2.0-litre four-cylinder TFSI unit, used in a wide range of VAG vehicles, topped the 150PS to 250PS classification.

Dayco supplies the entire primary drive system, which incorporates its ground-breaking BIO (belt-in-oil), for the Ford unit and the timing/water pump belt for the VW engine, emphasizing the company’s extraordinary technical capabilities and manufacturing capacity.

The awards, which are judged by more than 70 of the most respected motoring journalists from around the world, are held in high regard by the VM’s and the wider industry alike.
