The 3.6 in my RWD SRX certainly isn't a scorcher off the line, but I found the 75 - 90 time to be quite acceptable. I had the need to get around a pickup that was hanging in my left blind spot this afternoon as I was coming up on a truck. Once the 3.6 is up in its torque curve, it is very nice.

To be quite honest, the V-6 is pretty good off the line, too - especially compared to its V-6 competition (RX330, etc.). The V-6 is geared lower than the Northstar, which makes for more torque multiplication.
