Ecoboost engines line
Consider the idea of: Building good-proven fixed cubic inch volume "standart unit" that consist from one-piston with valves and other stuff. Building all new Ecoboost engines based on this "standart unit" in the next systematic layout: - I3 - compact cars; - I4 - entry level vehicles or targeting fuel economy; - I6 - capable vehicles; And performance line (first stage - atmospheric, second stage - Ecoboost-turboed): - doubled and V-turned I3 -> V6 - some compact but performance applications (ex, Focus RS); - doubled and V-turned I4 -> V8 - performance & superduty applications (ex, F150 Harley-Davidson, Mustang GT500); - doubled and V-turned I6 -> V12 - super-performance applications (new Ford GT, new Linoln flagship sedan). Standartization of one-piston "unit" dramatically reduces costs of all engines together, gives very robust going through factory pipeline, makes technological upgrade of all engine line very easy. Sure for flexibility "standart unit" can be not one, but several in different cubic inch volume. I6 has more simple than V6 or V8 layout, more stable, more quiet. New I6,V8,V12's can give very good performance and unique-style for the new rebourned Lincoln brand.
