Ford definitely took a step backwards with V4.0. Is it me or does it seem like all they did was make "D" more like "S" and "S" more like "D". Seems I can barely tell any difference in the two where as before it was an obvious difference. If I wanted it to rev to 4K at partial to mid throttle I could always select "S", now it does this in "D", with little difference in the shift pattern in "S". Ford needs to come up with at least two versions and let the owners decide, because this one size fits all isn't working. I kinda liked the short shift/hypermile mode in "D" with an obviously more aggressive pattern in "S". If I didn't won't the short shift, all I had to do was give it more throttle input, and all was good. Or I could just go to "S" mode. Now it all seems to be about the same.
