Volvo Focus? TURBO?!

I read in a mag that the new foci are running with the uprated duratec engine. i also read that volvo i producing a vehicle with the focus engine plus a turbo. do these new engines bolt in to the older models? or are they even the same engine?

Nah the volve engines are volvo engines, not Fords with turbos. Inline 5 turbos if memory serves me right. No bolt in here as far as I know.

The new duratec 2.3 found in the Focus is totally different from the volvo powerplant.

if the New Volvo did run a turbo focus engine it would be cool to see what a transplant would turn out like

The AWD Volvo powerplant will be shared with the WRX, right?

Mazda,Volvo, and Ford will each have a vehicle which will follow a certain platform, the engines could be interchangable but have variations as well as the drivetrains, so they say, the Volvo is said to have a turbo AWD variant, that is all that is known thus far

my friend drived the volvo turbo. I believe it is a S70 GLT...it is actually faster than my PZEV, but because of the turbo, I got the volvo off the line. I doubt the turbo would be interchangable b/c it is a 5 cyclinder vehical...but who knows....maybe they may chance the engine :)!

Ford makes Volvo thats why this may happen for those of you who didn't catch that and they may come out with one they have not already
