204kw Mazda Tribute

From the review of the Mazda Tribute Classic at Drive.com.au

Engine: Gutsy 3.0L V6 is a modern design that produces 204kW and a meaty 266Nm of torque. Translated, this means it goes like a rocket, at least relative to the 4WD class, and chews fuel at about the same rate as a Holden Commodore

Yikes! Is that a typo? Haven't heard anything about the Ford Escape having this engine on offer?

Let's chuck it in the new Falcon...could do with a tad more torque though..

Kenne Belle, a Ford tuner in the States, has introduced a twin screw supercharger for the Ford Escapeand the Mazda Tribute. It pumps out 268 hp at the rear wheels.:D O-60 mph in 5.9 secs and the quarter in 14.4.
204kW is nearly 268hp but it is probably at the flywheel not the rear wheels.
