Ford 4.6-Liter 3-Valve V-8 Named To Ward’s ’10 Best’ Engine List For Second Year In A Row


DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 12, 2005 – For the second consecutive year, the 4.6-liter 3-valve V-8 that powers the Mustang GT has been named a “10 Best Engine” by Ward’s Auto World. Ward’s testers again praised Ford for creating a refined V-8 that produces 300 hp at an affordable price and called it “a convincing modern-day interpretation of a muscle-car V-8"

“Going into its second year on the market, the new Mustang still is the hottest car on the market, thanks in no small part to the 4.6-liter V-8.” said Barb Samardzich, vice president, Ford Motor Company, Powertrain Operations. “We are quite pleased that, for the second year in a row, Ward’s has chosen to recognize Ford Motor Company for this engine.”

For 2006, the Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer are also available with a 4.6-liter 3-valve V-8 engine. The 3-valve technology in the 4.6-liter V-8 offers improved power coupled with better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Other 3-valve engines in Ford’s modular V-engine series include the 5.4-liter V-8 in the Ford F-series, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator and the 6.8-liter V-10 in the F-series Super Duty.

The 4.6-liter 3-valve V-8 is built at Ford’s Essex Engine Plant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and at its Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Michigan.
