Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor
Yup, the motor was designed as a cheap alternative to Diesel, which the SD and commercial market demands. It will also replace the legacy modular motor. Area under the torque curve is the name of the game here, as is it's long term durability targets with it's cast iron block. Pretty sure Ford knows how to make more peaky power, but there is pretty much zero demad for it in this segment. When I heard D35 turbo like power/Tq numbers, I guess I assumed Raptor numbers. But still, being King is not a bad place to land.
And no, this would make very little sense in a Raptor. You would give up a lot of power, and gain a lot of weight.
I did hear that it exceeded all their fuel efficiency goals, for what that's worth.
