Citroën has added an engine and gearbox option to its Dispatch range in form of new BlueHDi 120 S&S EAT8 automatic 1400 Panel and Crew Vans.
These latest additions to Citroën’s Dispatch range are powered by the 1,997cc BlueHDi diesel engine, delivering 122hp (90kW) at 3,750rpm, with maximum torque of 340Nm at 1,750rpm.
With eight speeds to choose from, the EAT8 fully automatic transmission will shift to the best gear for the driving conditions, helping to minimise fuel consumption and emissions.
The EAT8 box can also detect when additional engine braking is needed and change down as necessary to help control vehicle speed.
The smooth automatic transmission can be of help if fragile loads are being carried, eliminating uneven or jerky gear changes.
This offers a further benefit of reduced mechanical wear, particularly in city driving where constant and uneven gear changing can cause excessive clutch wear.
For increased driver comfort, all versions equipped with the new engine and gearbox benefit from steering column mounted paddles for manual changes, should they be required.
