Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

I should clarify a bit, when I mentioned slightly larger displacement, I really meant very slightly. It's advertised displacement will not change. A bit more bore diameter will help with less valve shrouding, and still maintain the coveted five point oh. Now, from that information, anyone with a small aptitude in engine building or knowledge, will understand why they would do that (cough...voodoo components....cough).

Oh, and there will be no FP crank in it.

But my point in mentioning this, was to clarify that the coyote is going nowhere.

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

I still don't get the point of dropping two tenths of a liter in displacement which is about 12 cubic inches. The engine won't be measurably smaller than the 5.0 if at all. Anything this engine can do the 5.0 should be able to do when it comes to truck engines. The fact that Wings confirms this is in addition to the 5.0 and not a replacement leaves me baffled as to why. 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.

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

just-imho, there could be a bunch of reasons:
- designed to work with both electrification and EB
- ditto the 10-speed
- can't stop expecting a smaller-yet size variant, like 3.7/3.5, 3.0/2.7
- maybe with one (primarily) for Lincoln: Navi, cD6-Conti, the sport-compact that must not be named
but
chiefly
- I think they found a way to produce a v8 at lower cost

The Ford Mustang's 5.0-Liter V8 Won't Become a 4.8-Liter in 2018
[UPDATE]

R & T

By Chris Perkins - Dec 21, 2016


There are big changes in store for the 2018 Mustang—which could gain Magneride and a 10-speed automatic, and lose the base-model V6 engine. Now, it sounds like the Mustang GT's famous 5.0-liter V8 could be replaced with a new, slightly smaller 4.8-liter to aide efficiency.

Update 4:40 p.m. ET: An R&T source inside Ford has cast heavy doubt on this ever happening.
The rest of this post has been left unchanged.

Reuters first reported last month that...

For the record, I only confirmed that coyote 5.0L is going nowhere.
