Not everyone buys those vehicles because of the engines. Different trims have different options that appeal to different buyers. That is why manufacturers build different trim levels.Where in the name of God's green earth, do you need the power plant in the ST or Platinum? I don't see it. But Ford has sucked people into paying $55,000 so the can say they have a "fast SUV." Whoopee Do. An XLT with the 2.3L is probably the sweet spot, and hopefully you can buy it for under $40,000, because that's where the price point needs to be.
I bought my Aviator ($79,200 CDN) because I liked what it offered and although it has 3.0L engine, I usually put it in "Conserve" mode but I must admit that "Excite" mode is awesome.
