Maybe that's part of it, or the Escape is heavier or geared differently. The Escape's fun zone was definitely from 4400 until it shifted in the high 5's-6k. Either way, the Duratec 3.0's a nice engine, I always enjoyed it.
The Duratec V6 is supposed to have a lot of enginerring input fro Porsche. It better be good! [thumb]

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.

89 Saleen Mustang #622.

That poor stang was dying though, and I sold her to a collector who had plans to restore her. I used to be a common user of StangNet.
