Why Ford moved away from the CVT and the 3.0 motor is a mystery
Not really. The CVT was expensive. Ford's competitors have 3.5L V6s so Ford had to upgrade to stay competitive. The CVT probably can't take the torque of the 3.5L and they can't afford to keep the 3.0L much longer at low volumes. 6 speed automatics also reduce the CVT FE advantage. Just not enough potential demand to justify the added expense.

Break-in period accomplishes much more than improved engine performance.
Consider all the seals and bearings in the drive train, as well as engine accessories.
