Thumbs up Federal Govt Supports Next Gen Bara

Birth of a car. BA Falcon production line. The final line, where the engine, transmission, brakes and running gear are put into the carGovernment gives Ford Bara a push

The Ford Falcon and Territory six-cylinder engine is to become leaner and greener.



A $28 million Federal Government research and development grant is likely to extend the life of the Geelong-designed and built Barra in-line motor.

There was a risk Ford Australia could stop making the engine and get a replacement from the global Ford family.

But the investment shows the engine has a long-term future.

Ford is tight-lipped about how it will spend the grant, though a key goal will be to reduce the engine's emissions in line with stricter standards beyond 2010.

I never realised the US V6 clunkers were even a possibility and just assumed they would keep updating or redesign the I6.

Christ, though, this is a shock and a relief all at the same time. Go the I6.
