Alloy Block Inline 6 for New Falcon

Quote:
When asked why this motor has been such a well kept secret until now new Ford Australia Boss Tom Gorman said that a separate division was created for this motor with part of the development work being done in the US. “We wanted the BA motor to be a quick freshen up on the existing iron block 4.0L to hold us out until it was ready. The new motor, however, was developed secretly and has run ahead of schedule, so we have decided to release it in the upcoming all new Falcon. It is big news for Ford Australia and is a motor ahead of it’s time – we weren’t expecting this to be ready until much later.”
Engine specs:

Power: 220kW @ 7200rpm
Torque: 460Nm @ 4600rpm (400Nm from 1200rpm)
Bore: 94mm
Stroke: 96mm
Compression Ratio: 10.0:1
Configuration: Inline 6
Construction: Lightweight Alloy Block and Head, Iron Sleeved Bores, Forged Steel Crankshaft and Rods
Firing Order: 153624
Valve Actuation: 4 Valves per Cylinder, Infinitely Variable Solenoid Actuated Valves
Fuel: Sequential Petrol or LPG Injection
Ignition: Crank Angle Sensor, Coil on Plug, 6 Knock Sensors
Features: Piston Cooling Oil Jets, Electronic Water Pump, Continuously Variable Length Intake Runners, Ceramic Coated Tuned Length Exhaust Headers, Drive-By-Wire

That equates to 3,997 CCs
