I was starting to get interested in a V-6 Gen2. But, that water pump design is a bit disappointing. On the 3.0 Duratec, the water pump is outside the engine and driven by the serpentine belt. The internal water pump is reminiscent of old Dodge 3.5L V-6. When the water pump leaked, it filled the oil pan with coolant, usually taking the engine with it. I really don't like engine designs that cost $$$$ to replace a relatively inexpensive part.
