"The 2005 Mercury Montego houses a proven and fuel-efficient Duratec 30 V-6 engine that is refined for smoother, quieter operation and mated to an all-new, continuously variable transmission or a premium six-speed automatic transmission."

Anyone know if this is the same duratec as the Mazda 6 or as in the Taurus?

this 3.5 you speak of. Is it just a bored over 3.0 that we can swap in? Or is it the 3.5 there was an article about a while back that we can't use?

Other than being in-swapable the 3.5 is for their RWD applications. So the engine isn't transmounted like in the cougars...unless you wanna swap some drivetrains while your at it?

it will be..
the prototype they showed off was configured for rwd.. doesn't mean at all that itll be an rwd-only engine. :)
it will definitely be going into the ford five hundred and freestyle, both of which are fwd/awd.
