I don't think any of them have a V6 emblem. I know the 2009 models don't. However, I think you can identify 2010 V6 models by the Flex Fuel badge on the rear gate.

Interesting. I didn't know they got rid of them. The 08s have emblems all over the place. Cost savings?
Perhaps political correctness. You're not supposed to be able to see the difference between the 4 and 6 cylinder models.

For 2008+ models, Ford had V6 emblems on the fenders of 2008 models only.

Ford added the Flex Fuel emblem to the liftgate on 2010 V6 models.

There was an article in the Detroit News last summer about more drivers selecting the 4 cyl vs the 6cyl for gas mileage so Ford decided to remove the badges because the 6 cyl engine was no longer a strong selling point.
