Is it an all new design or simply a smaller Coyote like the Nano engines. If it is all new why not replace Coyote, if it's not all new how does dropping 12CI benefit anything.

I'm probably completely wrong here but I keep coming back to Nano, two closely related engines leaving one exclusive to Lincoln.
I wonder the same thing, unless they are boosting it or making a bigger version to be sold with it. 5.0 is small enough.
