Ford Motor Co. has announced a new 3.5-liter V-6 that fits into the same space as the engine it replaces but generates 23% more power. The engine will be mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission that Ford says will improve highway fuel economy by 7% compared to a conventional fourspeed automatic. Ford developed the transmission in partnership with General Motors Corp. Ford plans to debut the new engine-transmission combo next fall in the front-drive Ford Edge and Lincoln Aviator crossover vehicles. The company estimates about 20% of its vehicles on the road by 2010 will use the new engine. It previously forecast that six-speed transmissions will grow to 15% of the North American market by 2010 and 50% by 2015.

researching chicago building home insurances and came tumbling across your blog. I LOVE IT! I needed a break from chicago building home insurances anyways :-) If you don't mind I want to add your
