The Lincoln MKR concept that graced the stand at the Detroit Auto Show in January will be making a return visit to Cobo Hall next week for the SAE World Congress. FEV Engine Technologies will displaying the car in their booth on the show floor. FEV is an engineering consultancy that focuses on powertrain development and they worked with Ford on the direct-injection system that was used on the Twin-Force V-6 in the MKR. The twin turbocharged 3.5L V-6 is derived from the new Duratec 35 engine used in a variety of 2007 model Ford vehicles.

The flex-fuel engine turns out 415hp and get fifteen percent better fuel efficiency than a comparably powerful V-8 with a more typical port injection setup. FEV will also be showcasing some of their variable compression ratio work, a UPS truck with a hydraulic hybrid powertrain and a diesel powered Chrysler Sebring.
