Ford engines are well known throughout the world, not only in Ford vehicles but in aftermarket, sports and kit applications. Different engine ranges are used in various global markets. A summary of their European passenger vehicle engine range shows a reliance on 4-cylinder engines, ranging from 1.2 to 2.2 litre capacities. The 1.0 Ecoboost is a UK-designed 3-cylinder engine which has won awards from industry judges.

6 Cylinder[edit]

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. The first three of these lines are no longer in production, leaving only the Mondeo and Cyclone as the company's midrange engines.

8 Cylinder[edit]

Ford introduced the Flathead V8 in their affordable 1932 Model 18, 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 and the company introduced a new large architecture, the Boss family, for 2010.
