Inline engines have always turned out better Torque numbers then V engines, but the same goes the other direction for HP numbers lol.

At Cove I can call out the Cummins when they come over the hill, you can't beat the sound the straight six makes, especially when they are loaded putting down a ton of torque on a steep grade.
As if the numbers the 3.5l ecoboost aren't impressive here comes the little 3.0l that could. I think the success of the ecoboost helped push this along. Fords price point helped the ecoboost so I hope dodge doesn't want to charge too much for it.
With an 8 speed Trans and diesel characteristics this thing could be a great boat puller that gets good mileage loaded and unloaded. Although I'm not in love with the roots of this v6.
