The Ford DLD engine is an automobile engine family - a group of compact straight-4 Diesel engines developed jointly by Ford Motor Company and the automotive-diesel specialist PSA Group (Peugeot/Citroën). The Ford/PSA joint-venture for the production of the DLD/DV was announced in September, 1998. Half of the total engine count are produced at Ford's Dagenham Engine plant in Dagenham, England and at Ford's Chennai plant in India, the other half at PSA's Trémery plant in France.
The straight-4 engines are sold under the Duratorq TDCi name by Ford, and as the HDi by Citroën and Peugeot. Mazda also uses the Ford-made DLD engine in the Mazda2 and the Mazda 3, calling it the MZ-CD or CiTD.
Officially, there are two families of engines in the range:
- The 1.4 L DLD-414 is generally non-intercooled
- The 1.5 L derived from the 1.6 L
- The 1.6 L DLD-416 is always intercooled
Ford later added their unrelated 1.8 L DLD-418 engine to the DLD family, though it is properly part of the Ford Endura-D engine family.
In 2012, Ford added the 1.5-litre, closely derived from the 1.6-litre engine.

It is only a DLD by name, since it is completely unrelated to the 1.4/1.6 units, and is derived from Ford's own 1.8 8v Endura-D engine that saw service through the 1980s and 1990s ... However, Ford considers it part of the DLD family, as evidenced by the official "DLD" name ...

Locked in endless dreams,

Ope no more, for now Love dies.”
