The Duratec 35 will be used in a number of vehicles, and the plant that makes it will be a model for flexible manufacturing at Ford.
Ford's Lima (Ohio) Engine Plant is producing 325,000 of the 3.5-liter 265 horsepower engines that are being introduced in the Ford Edge, Lincoln MKX and MKZ, Ford Five Hundred and the Mazda CX-9.

 Ford Duratec 35 thrives on simplicity
At 265 hp at 6,250 rpm and 250 lb.-ft. (339 Nm) of torque at 4,500 rpm when fitted in Ford's all-new Edge and Lincoln MKX cross/utility vehicles, the Duratec 35 is easily on pace with the growing cadre of high-volume V-6s from both import and domestic auto makers.
He says the Duratec 35's outstanding noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics — not to mention its entertaining 6,700-rpm redline and ability to use regular unleaded gasoline despite its high, power- and efficiency-enhancing 10.3:1 compression ratio — are benefits from the long hours of CAE.
The design team had to guarantee the Duratec 35 would fit between the frame rails of the wide variety of vehicle architectures for which the new V-6 is earmarked.

 Ford Zetec engine at AllExperts
Displacement ranged from 1.6 L to 2.0 L. It was replaced in most applications by the Mazda MZR-based Duratec 20, though some Zetec-SE engines were used as replacements on the lower end.
In 2000, Ford of Brazil developed a cheaper version of the Zetec-SE engine, to compete with the classic VW AP engines.
It is also a much smaller engine than the SE version, which allowed it to be installed in the Ford Ka, replacing the Endura-E which was considered underpowered and outdated.

 Carpages.ca - Ford's New 250-HP 3.5L V6 and 6-Speed Automatic Transmission Debut in Dearborn
While the Duratec 30 has been around for a long time, and every auto writer in North America has been questioning ad nauseam when an update will be made available, it should be noted that Ford was the first domestic, and ahead of many imports in introducing 24-valve, DOHC technology to the entry-level field.
This relationship between Ford and Aisin may not last much longer, however, as an all-new proprietary (or at least as proprietary as a transmission co-developed with General Motors can be) six-speed auto, for use in front-drive vehicles, will debut in Detroit, in the same two new crossovers I mentioned a minute or two ago.
Ford's new 3.5-litre V6, boasting 250-horsepower at an estimated 6,250 rpm and 240 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm.

 VehicleVoice News: 2007 Ford Edge - Mustang of Crossovers
The introduction of the all new Ford Edge crossover SUV is arguably the most significant launch in the United States for the 2007 model year.
Ford's critics have complained the problem was that the company didn't offer the right vehicle at the right price at the right time — the Mustang being the exception that proves the rule.
Ford chassis engineers dialed back the vividness and stiffness of the Mazda platform by softening the suspension bushings, spring rates, strut valving and other "tune-ables." The steering has moderate heft and is fairly responsive.

 1998 Ford Taurus Review, Prices, Photos: New Car Test Drive
Reactions to the original Taurus were that Ford had made a giant gain in ride, handling, steering feel and overall mechanical quality.
As good as the old Taurus had become--it had been in an ongoing refinement program for almost a decade--the new Taurus was a leap ahead, a leap that started with one of the best chassis in the midsize class.
While the overhead-valve Vulcan V6 provides adequate performance, the best choice is the double overhead-cam Duratec, which brings more merging and passing power and more fun.
