Thumbs down Looks like V6 is the way it's gonna be

Check this link, I dunno how many of you guys have seen it, but it lists E169 and specifically mentions the 3.8L V6 (and the 5.4 V8:s6: )

Could TBD mean "To Be Decided" or maybe Turbo Diesel!

I say keep the I6.

I can tell you right now you guys do not want that dog of an engine in AU. That 3.8 is a POS in my book. I have seen too many probs with them here in the states and the fact there is little to no muscle with it. Just my opinions and views of course.

stick with the straight 6 i reckon. Look at the porsche or BMW and see how they have had quality donks for years that are powerful and can be economical too
