Lincoln to Juice Lincoln Zephyr With New Duratec V6

According to Edmunds Inside Line, the 2007 Lincoln Zephyr will get Ford's new, 3.5-liter Duratec 35 — the latest and most powerful in the Duratec family — which will power one in five Ford products in coming years. That'll give the entry Lincoln a power boost from 221 hp to a possible 250 hp. That engine will replace the whiny Duratec 30 in the current model (no word yet on the new engine's whininess factor). Still, Edmunds' evocation of the Vulcan V6 — last seen on the Ranger and Taurus — is just, plain adorable.
