The article reports that Ford Falcon and Territory automobiles sold in Australia will feature the 3.7-litre version of Ford's new V6 engine family beginning in 2010. The 3.7-litre delivers a useful torque increase with no reduction in revability. Ford Australia public affairs chief Sinead McAlary said that the new engine delivers power and performance. The U.S. division of Ford, however, announced that the V6 has been engineered to function in a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain, if required.
