Re: The rumour mill and a future Falcon 6 cylinder Question???
I've mentioned this before and i'll mention it now, with the Ford Inline 6 it's a case of "IF it ain't broke don't fix it" and the BA with the introduction of DOHC and Turbo technology proves that just because an engine is been around since the 1960's it doesn't mean it has to be a bad design.
Remember the Falcon is a large car and can accomodate an Inline 6 without sacrificing interior space or bonnet space unlike the smaller cars.
