Does anyone here work at the Canadian Essex engine plant? Or, have you worked there in the past? I have owned 3 F150's with the 4.2 V6 engine made at the Essex plant. My current F150 is a 2007 with the Essex built 4.2 V6 engine. And, it's a well built engine! The plant closed in 2007, but reopened in 2010 to build the 5.0 engine. Along with the straight 6 and 4.6 engines being 2 of the best Ford engines ever built, l think the 4.2 V6 is one of the best engines built as well.
