I don't know, I just don't think the V6 crowd will care too much. Nobody cares about the displacement of the V6's and nobody was aiming real high when selecting the V6 anyway (I'm not trying to sound like a jerk there but it seems to be true in my experience). It's not replacing the V8, so the people who do care about power and displacement won't be affected in the least.

Ford is doing the right thing in dropping the V6 which no one cares about, and replacing it with something more efficient while not losing out on power. Plus, now you have tunability, which the V6es weren't exactly known for.

In fact, I think when they switch to the Ecoboost engine, interest in the car as base engine will go up, not down (assuming prices stay reasonably in line with what they are now).
