Ford to Bring Back Hurricane V8 to Fight Hemi Branding

According to a report in the Detroit News, Ford plans to revive its torquey, 6.2-liter "Hurricane" V8 engine program for its trucks, after having cancelled it earlier this year. The engine, which had been named after the violent atmospheric disturbance that dare not speak its name, considering what it did to New Orleans last year (which, some say, is why Ford may not use that particular moniker), will make an appearence in F-Series and other trucks, making them competitive with Chrysler's 6.1-liter, 425-hp SRT8 Hemi. Of course, the real question is, what else will have a Hurricane?
