Ford's Volvo Cars subsidiary designed the SI6 straight-6 automobile engine for use in 2006 models. An evolution of the company's long-used straight-5, which itself is an evolution of the Volvo B6304 straight six engine, the SI6 can be mounted transversely for front wheel drive applications or longitudinally for rear wheel drive. Despite the added cylinder and displacement, the engine remains compact, and is in fact 1 mm shorter than the previous I5. The engine will be offered in two displacements initially — a 3.0 L turbocharged version and a 3.2 L naturally aspirated version. Both will offer variable cam timing, though only the turbo version varies both the intake and exhaust valves. It is likely that the engines will be used in European Ford and Jaguar products as well as Volvos. ...more on Wikipedia about "Ford SI6 engine"

The B14A was essentially a twin carb version of the B4B Volvo engine. These two engines were nearly identical, except for the induction systems. The B14A carb system was supplied by the British SU carburetor concern and the carbs used were designated HS2. These dimunitive carbs familiar to any English sports car fan improved the acceleration and overall performance of the B4B which in turn accomplished Volvo's corporate desire to make the PV444 cars powered by these engines more attractive to the American audience whose attention Volvo hoped to gain. ...more on Wikipedia about "Volvo B14A engine"
The B16A and B16B Volvo engines (single carb and twin carbs respectively) were a 1600cc development of the B14A which in turn was sired by the B4B. These engines were fitted to the PV444 in its final two years (1957 and 1958), the Volvo PV544 in its 1958 introduction, as well as the companion estate and van versions known as Volvo P445, Volvo P210, and Volvo Duett. A new Volvo automobile intruduced in 1956, known in some markets as the Volvo Amazon or Volvo 122 was the first production Volvo to sport this engine in any significant number although some of the later examples of the short-lived Volvo P1900 were also fitted with them. Other applications of this engine found use in marine, industrial and agricultural settings. The Volvo BM T425 tractor is one such example of a non-automotive use for the B16. ...more on Wikipedia about "Volvo B16 engine"
