Two weeks ago Ford announced that the automaker is going to develop engines with twin turbochargers that will improve power and fuel economy (TwinForce). The first car to feature the new technology will be the 2009 Lincoln MKS sedan.
The engine in the MKS sedan will be a flex-fuel 3.5L V6 that puts out 415hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, due to two turbochargers and direct injection technology. It is also rumored that Ford is working a 2.5L four cylinder with the same technology for the Fusion sedan and Edge crossover that will be available by the end of the decade.
The Ford Mustang is going to receive a 5.0L TwinForce V8 and Ford’s full-size pickups and SUVs will receive a larger 6.2L V8 with the same technology. The V8 engines will also have cylinder deactivation technology.
In addition a new dual-clutch six-speed PowerShift gerabox will also debut in the MKS.
