US:Ford will put new twin-turbo V-6s into Ford, Lincoln, Mercury models

Ford will put new twin-turbo V-6s into Ford, Lincoln, Mercury models

Amy Wilson | Automotive News

DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co.'s new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine will go into production on Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models.

Barb Samardzich, Ford's powertrain vice president, wouldn't provide timing. But she did say Sunday at the Detroit auto show that all three brands will get the new engine, which Ford is calling TwinForce.

Ford plans to reveal more about TwinForce production plans in November, Samardzich said.

The TwinForce was unveiled in the Lincoln MKR concept car on Sunday. It is based on Ford's 3.5-liter Duratec V-6, which went into production in 2006. The TwinForce marks Ford's first application of gasoline direct injection on a V-6 engine.

Ford says the TwinForce delivers V-8 power and performance with V-6 fuel economy. With its two turbochargers, the show-car engine produces 415 hp and 400 lbs.-ft. of torque. Samardzich wouldn't say whether the production engine would approach those numbers.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

There was a Lincoln concept car not too long ago in a magazine I read that had this setup at 400+hp. It'd be nice for them to bring it to market but with fuel prices the way they are I believe all manufacturers, not only Ford should be finding ways to make vehicles lighter while keeping the current engines. This will increase performance without adding excessive costs to the engine and not to mention avoiding the use of Premium fuel.

They should market cars with small diesels - 2010 emissions be damned!

'12 Chrysler 200 Limited 3.6L 283hp; 28,000m
'99 Taurus 3.0L 2V Vulcan 145hp; 154,300m - Traded
Amsoil in all vehicles!

TwinForce sounds good but they are calling it the ecoboost now?

There should still be V8's offered on select models though, right?

Aren't they still going ahead with the new hurracane V8 for 2010
Nascar sprint will still be running V8's in the FWD cars like now or will the shift to RWD make ford to run a car that looks like showroom stock?

Nascar run cars now that are FWD cars on your streets except the charger, but last year they ran the AVENGER IN DODGE TEAMS
