Ford V6s

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 six major V6 families ever since, the Cologne/Taunus V6, Essex 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.
