Automotive News is speculating that Ford's highly anticipated EcoBoost twin-turbocharged, direct-injected V6 will cost about $700 over the standard powerplant when it's released as an option for the Lincoln MKS and Ford Flex next year. While Ford didn't release output numbers or mileage expectations for the initial applications, they are saying that pickup versions of the EcoBoost V6 will produce "significantly more" than 340 HP and 340 lb-ft of torque while returning 20% better mileage than an equivalent V8. Just don't call it a Twinforce. [AutoNews(Sub. Req.)]
