And that is much appreciated! it does make the 4.8 a more curious beast though.

With the 5.0L remaining, Ford won't let it sit idle. This could mean a new 5.0 with dual injection and even higher compression ratios.

I saw that you only stated that but yet others add/changed multiple things to that and labeled it "wings confirmed". The human race seems to do that a lot, they hear something and proceed to add their own spices to it...u guess your statement was too vague for some wings lol

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

OK had a thought about something, what if Ford is going to play
mix and match with a few available bore and stroke ratios...

Follow me here

Coyote 5.0 = 92.2 mm x 92.0 mm
Voodoo 5.2 = 94.0 mm x 92.0 mm FPC (unique to Shelby)
Cammer 5.0 = 94.0 mm x 90.0 mm

New Coyote 5.0 = 94.0mm x 90.0mm (using Cammer Mod style Crank)
New Coyote 5.2 = 94.0 mm x 92.0 mm (Original 5.0 Coyote cross plane crank)
New Coyote 4.8 = 92.2 mm x 90.0 mm (using Cammer Mod style Crank)

If this report were true, then it would leave open the possibility that the Mustang
could continue with a bigger bore shorter stroke 5.0 Coyote for added power/torque
while allowing F150 to use both 4.8 and 5.2 versiosn of the Coyote. That 0.4 liter may
not sound like much of a difference but it could be enough to cover the needs of V8 buyers
in the two important towing segments, up to 8,000 lbs and >8,000 lbs through to 12,000 lbs. .

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

I'm really curious to see what Ford will do considering the fact that the F-series pickup and Mustang are their only models with V8 options. The 5.0 won't go anywhere but will the rumored 4.8 be shared?

More V8 applications are coming. Expedition also gets V8 again.

Would it be a safe assumption to say D6 will be V8 capable?

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

Let's put it this way, there's more chance of Ford seeing more use of its DOHC V8
than GM getting that 6.2 DOHC LT5 in anything other than a high priced dream machine.

A little off topic,
I would like to see Ford replace the 3.5 V6 in F150 with a baby 4.2 Coyote V8.
An engine like that with DI should produce 350 HP/350 lb ft, more than capable
of replacing the uninspiring base V6 and towing up to 8,000 lbs with ease...
...something that generates interest without hurting sales of other engine types....

I don't think it will be as exotic as Ford's flat-plane crank Voodoo V8.
I wouldn't be surprised if a milder version of the DOHC LT5 finds its way under the hood of Cadillacs.

Seeing the positive sales of EcoBoost V6 powered F150s, maybe Ford might just make it standard in the future.

Cadillac has their own V8 coming out, they already announced a 4.2 turbo.
