Newspaper Reports that Ford is Developing New V-8 Engine for F-150

June 1, 2004

Ford Motor Co. is developing a larger, more powerful V-8 engine for its top-selling F-150 pickup line, according to the Detroit News newspaper. The engine’s 6.2-liter displacement will dwarf Ford’s biggest V-8 offering — the 300-hp 5.4-liter Triton V-8. Ford declined to comment on the project, but suppliers are already bidding to provide components for the engine, according to documents obtained by the Detroit News. Ford has not decided where to build the engine known internally as Hurricane, according to the newspaper report.
