At what mileage does Ford recommend replacing the timing belt on the new 3.7 V6? I took a quick look at the owner's manual and didn't find it.

I don't believe it has a timing belt. The rest of the Duratec V6 engine family uses timing chains, and I can't find any info to the contrary for the 3.7 online.

Wikipedia's article for the Duratec V6 family lists them all as using chains. You don't replace timing chains until it's time for an engine rebuild on most engines.

I'm not sure how it is for the 3.7, but on the 3.0L Duratec you can see the timing chain and the camshaft gear just by removing the oil cap.
