2008 Expedition lacks power compared to 2005

I have a 2005 Expedition Eddie Bauer that has 65k miles on it. It idles a little rough and the engine sounds like marbles in a paint can(probably due to cam phasers). I always assumed I was not getting all of its performance. That being said, I just bought a 2008 and I cannot believe the difference in overall engine performance. The 2008 has very poor throttle response and no grunt.

Before everyone comes up with ideas that would explain the difference, I want to say that the difference is NOT SMALL. If feels like about 100 ft/lbs difference. The 2008 feels like my 4.6L 1998 f150 and the 2005 feels like a Mustang GT. In addition to the missing feels as if the 2008 is never in a low enough gear.

Has anyone else experienced the difference in these two years?
