This is from the service manual - 2006 and 2007 3.6L have the same specs. (Edit: I originally posted a snip but realize it is somewhat confusing because the image spanned two pages).

Second pass: back off to zero (counterclockwise)
Third pass: 18 lb ft
Final pass: 110 degrees

crankshaft main bearing bolt
Inner
First pass: 15 lb ft
Final pass: 80 degrees

First pass: 10 lb ft
Final pass: 110 degrees
