What Engine Has Been Shared By The Most Automakers?

Remember when you were in elementary school and your teacher would always shout that "sharing is caring?" Well, a lot of people in the auto industry took that to heart. What engine has been the proverbial town bicycle?

One would have to be the 4.6 liter Ford V8, which found it's home in nearly ever single division of the Ford Motor Company. It was in Lincolns, Fords, Ford Trucks, and Mercurys. And that's because it was a workhorse that could do literally anything. Need a muscle car? They have the engine. Need a truck? Have the engine. Luxury coupe? Yep, we have it. Taxi? Sure thing.


It was everywhere.

What other engines have found their way around the world in 80 cars?
