Ford to use ‘Coyote’ engine in Falcon range

Ford Coyote Engine

Ford Australia has just confirmed that its recently-revealed direct-injection ‘Coyote’ 5.0 litre V8 will be fitted to the Falcon range, replacing the current 5.4 litre Boss engines.
Due to Euro 4 emissions compliance requirements the Boss range is to be discontinued from July this year. Ford first used the new engine as part of the Mustang line-up late last year.
In standard naturally-aspirated form the ‘Coyote’ 5.0 litre engine develops 307kW of power and 529Nm of torque, trumping the 290kW/520Nm of the current XR8.
For high performance applications, like the FPV GT range, Ford is rumoured to be working on a unique supercharged version of the engine.
The decision to supercharge the ‘Coyote’ engine was reached because of the effect a lower output would have the FPV range’s image in Australia, especially when directly compared to HSV’s 325kW GTS.
Ford’s new turbocharged Ecoboost technology is the most likely avenue but a delay in adding the technology to the ‘Coyote’ engine means FPV is searching for its own solution.
The addition of a supercharger will also allow FPV to create different power outputs for different models with relative ease.
We will bring you more information on the new ‘Coyote’ engine range as it’s released.
