Ford Sierra

Ford Sierra is an automobile from Ford in Germany.

In the beginning the Sierra used engines and gearboxes from the Ford Cortina. The engise were of two typed, the OHC Ford Pinto and the V6 Cologne. Towards the end of the 1980s the Pinto was started to be phased out and in the UK replaced with the CVH (Compound Valve angle, Hemispherical combustion chambers) engine, and also the DOHC engine in 1990. Both models used the Type 9[?] (aka Type N[?]) gearbox[?].

Production started in 1982 and continued until 1993. In total 2.700.500 was made. The Sierra was replaced with the Ford Mondeo[?] that used the Zetec engine.

A special version called Ford Sierra Cosworth was also produced based on a three door Sierra with the dashboard[?] from the US Sierra XR4Ti. It was designed by Ford's Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) group and made in Ford's Genk factory in Belgium. It was launched in July 1986 and only 5545 was made. The Ford Sierra Cosworth used a 2.0 DOHC engine with Garret T3 turbocharger and intercooler.
