Ford released a bunch of engine-geek info on the new 3.5-liter V6 that'll power a goodly portion of its new cars, particularly its crossovers like the Ford Edge and Lincoln Aviator set to appear at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Ford officials say the high-revving all-aluminum six, which will wring 250hp and 240 lb-ft of torque out of its dual-overhead cam valvetrain, will power one in five Ford vehicles by the end of the decade. Paired with a new six-speed automatic, it'll make its way into cars like the the Ford Five Hundred, Mercury Montego and new Lincoln sedans on the docket, and will play a pivotal role in future Ford hybrids.
