The "Ecoboost" v-8 has the power of a V8 and the economy of a v6...
So, does the "Ecoboost" V-6 have the power of a v6 and the economy of a 4 cylinder?

no such thing as an ecoboost V8 yet. the 3.5 V6 ecoboost that is being used in the SHO Taurus and the F-150 is as powerful and in some cases more powerful then some V8's but gets V6 mileage, thats what they were trying to say. 365 HP and 420 TQ with most of that torque available below 2,000 RPM. pretty awesome

That torque is crazy, considering that the new 5.0 for the Mustangs is putting out 390 ft-lbs of torque at 6500 rpm.
