The P-Tronic tuning box-unit accompanies the Ford brand through the TDCI and EcoBlue diesel engines as well as the EcoBoost petrol engines of all the models present on the world market.
Ford's success is based on models that meet a wide range of needs and whose careers do not shy away from the idea of crossing borders. The result is a strong presence in the automobile sector which has earned it a place in the top 3 in its American cradle and in the top 10 in Europe, with the Detroit manufacturer having a dozen factories on the former continent. This reality is reflected in the range of P-Tronic tuning box-units for Ford, especially in models related to 4x4s, pick-ups and SUVs. Mainly in TCDi and EcoBlue diesel engines but also in EcoBoost petrol configurations.
Examples? The legendary F150 pick-up, the best-selling model in the Atlantic, has been widely sold outside its home country. Various engines including the 3.5 EcoBoost 365 bhp are part of the P-Tronic range. The Ranger, which also originated in the United States, is now deprived of the market in which it was born and has become the most registered pick-up in Europe. Its 2.2 TDCi and especially 2.0 Bi-Turbo and 3.2 TDCi engines are particularly well suited to the installation of P-Tronic boxes, especially on the top of the range Raptor. A third generation Ranger which lends its genes to the Endeavour (called Everest in some markets), an SUV initially reserved for Asian markets and chosen by the French army for 2018. The logic of globalisation also applies to the Ford Edge, which arrived in Europe two years after the start of its career on the other side of the Atlantic, and to the Ford Kuga, whose destiny is linked to that of the Escape, even if the engines vary according to the market.
Alongside these big guns, P-Tronic also equips all the 'civilised' Ford models with tuning boxes. From the little Ka to the S-Max in all its TDCI and Ecoboost configurations, via the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, B-Max, Mondeo, Galaxy, C-Max and Grand C-Max, no one is missing out. Even the Mustang 2.3 EcoBoost can gain 25-35% more power and torque with P-Tronic.
Ford is one of those manufacturers with a rich and eventful history. One of the characteristics of this player is the diversity of its models, which are specifically targeted at the American market, Europe and, increasingly aggressively, Asia, even if not all of its experiences there have been successful, as demonstrated by the fact that it will stop production in India in 2022.
