4 Cylinder


6 Cylinder


Ford was late to offer a six-cylinder engine in their cars, only introducing a six in 1941 after the failure of the 1906 Model K. The company relied on its famous Flathead V8 for most models, only seriously producing six-cylinder engines in the 1960s. The company was also late with a V6 engine, introducing a compact British V6 in 1967 but waiting until the 1980s to move their products to rely on V6 engines. The company has relied on five major V6 families ever since, the Cologne/Taunus V6, Canadian Essex V6, Vulcan V6, Mondeo V6 and Cyclone V6. But three of these lines are scheduled to end production within this decade, leaving only the Mondeo and Cyclone as the company's midrange engines.

Ford introduced the Flathead V8 in their affordable 1932 Model B, becoming a performance leader for decades. In the 1950s, Ford introduced a three-tier approach to engines, with small, mid-sized, and big block engines aimed at different markets. All of Ford's mainstream V8 engines were replaced by the Overhead cam Modular family in the 1990s, however the company is expected to introduce a new larger family, the Boss/Hurricane, by the end of the decade.
