With the introduction of several all-new B- and even C-Segment Ford cars and small utilities now powered by Ford’s latest global 2.0-liter I-4 engine architecture, Ford Racing will be making a variety of these new four-cylinder powertrains available to enthusiasts as part of its FRPP Crate Engine program.
The first engine off the I-4 lineup is a direct-injection, 2.0-liter engine that features independent variable valve timing and will be available in the spring of 2012. Other offerings will mirror the new line of powerful and technologically advanced engines in production Ford vehicles, including those with “EcoBoostTM” turbocharging.
All engines will be available as “plug and play” kits that include the necessary interface components for proper installation.
