I am mildly surprised no one's dream list included a 3.6L engine option. In this general market segment, for example, I look at the Lincoln MKT (albeit larger, a couple of hunderd pounds heavier CUV vehicle) with it's V6 twin turbo option, cranking out about 350 + hp and a similar torque figure. Gas mileage tradeoff seems very modest and palatable to me as well.
I agree that the current 2012 V6 may have enough power at the appropriate rpm to mitigate annoying downshifts with a 7 speed trans.
