Well I have never heard of one, seeing as even the TD cortina wich was before XD falcons came out with a six, I doubt it.

Re: Did Ford ever make a 4 cyl Falcon???

The engine that springs to mind is the 173 pusuit motor the had in the early X-series falcons. Im sure there was a smaller ci capacity motor than that but not sure.

But other than what Dellboy said, they didnt make 4cyl falcon motors for the full body sedans that I know of.

Im no history buff, I could be wrong.

Re: Did Ford ever make a 4 cyl Falcon???

I've seen the "at least the falcon's never had a four potter" thrown at a Holden guy... and I've never heard of one. And the XD was pretty huge, a four cylinder would struggle like buggery to get the thing moving.

So in my, highly in experience, unknowledgeable, untrustworthy, one eyed oppinion; no it never happened.

AFAIK Ford had never put a 4 cylinder in a Falcon.

To be sure ask Discovery..

Ford did look at putting the 2.3L Pinto OHC Four from America in the XD but quickly decided that weight reduction and making the six cylinder engine more efficient was a better idea.
