Dealer Rental Car Is An SE 2.3

So I went to drop my car to the dealer to get a fuel pump recall done and rent out a Focus for the day.

Thought it was the SPI cause of the single gauge and the SE badge. Driving after few minutes, I feel that the car has a good response and very good torque. I get home to pop the hood and what do I see....the 2.3 PZEV engine. WTF??

I never knew that the SE could be equipped with the 2.3 engine. Guess I'm gonna play around today..:)

Heiwa...

I think it was optional in 2004. Either that, it was a carry over from NY.

Some states like MA the 2.3 is the only engine in a SE. I think CA is another.

I had an 04 SE with the PZEV in California, and because CA is one of those green states, ford must offer only the 2.3 PZEV for the same price because the 2.0 can't meet the emissions... That's my understanding... Also, the dealers said that it was quite a bit more reliable. All I know is I wish my '00 ZX3 had the PZEV! That thing was awesome!

my '03 SE has the 2.3 PZEV. It was an option in 2003 in California.
