Hmmm... different gear ratios? Not according to this...

04 X/XS/LLBean: automatic: 1st 3.027, 2nd 1.619, 3rd 1,0, 4th 0.694 reverse 2.272; final 4.444

04 FXT: automatic: 1st 2.785, 2nd 1.545. 3rd 1.0, 4th 0.694,
reverse 2.272. Final 4.444

05 X/XS/LLBean: automatic: 1st 3.027, 2nd 1.619, 3rd 1,0, 4th 0.694 reverse 2.272; final 4.444

05 FXT: automatic: 1st 2.785, 2nd 1.545. 3rd 1.0, 4th 0.694,
reverse 2.272. Final 4.444

Also, the 04 FXT is drive-by-wire as well (but not the 04 NA models) and was the first model to get the new direct-control 4EAT.
