The Duratec V6 is supposed to have a lot of enginerring input fro Porsche. It better be good!

it always annoyed me that the taurus got the shit end of the stick when mazda had a 220 hp 3.0 duratec, Lincoln had a 231 hp 3.0 v6 and jaguar was running a 240 hp 3.0 v6. Here come the taurus with 200 hp. Jacques Nassar that car and Bill Ford continued to do the same. Now it is better but the car is still a bit underpowered for its size.

It's insult to injury that Ford put a 220 hp 3.0 in the Taurus SHO 18 years ago.
