From Peugeot press: Peugeot's first sport utility vehicle (SUV) — the 4007 — is the result of a co-operation between the Mitsubishi motors corporation and the PSA Peugeot Citroën group. The 4007 extends Peugeot's product portfolio and range appeal, combining the best from these two companies. The Peugeot SUV features an innovative electronically controlled 4-wheel drive system and a powerful, latest-generation HDi DPFS diesel engine.
The 4007 is generously equipped, with a high level of standard equipment, and maintains Peugeot’s commitment to environmentally responsible vehicles.
The 4007 is equipped with an innovative 'on demand' 4-wheel drive system developed by Mitsubishi Motors. An electronic system controls a viscous clutch located ahead of the rear axle to distribute torque between the front and rear axles, optimizing engine and transmission performance.
4007 is launched with a latest-generation HDi Diesel engine derived from a co-operation between the PSA Peugeot Citroën and the Ford Motor Company. With a capacity of 2.2-litres, the engine develops a maximum power of 115 kW at 4000 rpm, or around 156bhp CEE. This is a single-turbo version of the 2.2-litre HDi 125 kW engine, but with variable geometry, and was recently introduced in the 407 and 607 ranges.
To ensure a high level of drivability and exploit to the full the maximum torque of 380 Nm available from low engine speeds (2000 rpm), a 6-speed manual gearbox manufactured by 'Aisin' is coupled with the engine.
