Current production Defender motor is a Ford correct?

Ok as I understand it the current production Defender Motor in the Uk is a Ford Engine correct? Anyone know what it is and is it made here in the US or overseas? If here in the U.S. has anyone looked at using it for a Diesel conversion?

Inquiring minds want to know...

I don't believe it's in any US makes but I think it's in the Euro Ford transit vans.

It may be wishful thinking, but I'm a firm believer that our options in diesel engines will change soon.

BTW the US Transit Connect van is called the Tourneo in Europe, the Transit is an actual van, and the motor doesn't appear in anything in the states that I'm aware of.

And I think the diesel wishing is just that. I think most manufacturers except the Germans have ditched their US diesel plans.

It's just wishing (or eternal optimism). I can't believe we won't start getting more diesel options here across the board.

Regardless, it would not be a simple conversion. The bulkhead, dash, tunnel, engine bay layout is all quite different in the current model Defender.
