Because the new V6 offers better fuel economy, more power, and they EXPECT it'll be MORE reliable. It'll take a few years to tell though.
Over 2 million miles simulated on the dyno with no failure... Sounds great. It's not the real world though. We'll see in about 5 years, at the most, if it looks like there'll be major problems there...
