This would really put the extra oomph into ford's lineup today. They got some nice cars and trucks, but their lacking in drivetrain.
Today I'm in a displacement lover's hell. The trip from Chicago to Dearborn was made in record time, but not because of some big, burly V-8. The twin-turbo six of Motive's long-term BMW 135i was responsible for pinballing me through the mouth-breathing, truck-driving hordes of rural Michiganders along I-94. And here at Ford's Beech Daly technical center, the buzz inside is all about the upcoming EcoBoost V-6, which Ford hopes will provide V-8 power with V-6 efficiency. Suddenly, the whining from purists two years ago when BMW announced its first turbocharged gas engine since the '70s doesn't seem like a big deal. This is Ford. Mustangs and F-150s. V-8s and Toby Keith. And now that's all fallen to turbochargers and economy? What's next, painting the blue oval green? To peek behind the curtain and see exactly what's going on, I've come here to get my hands dirty. I'm going to build one of the first EcoBoost engines...
Hopefully SVT gets their hands on it. They need to get back to the forefront of factory performance divisions.
