By capable, what you are really asking is if it was designed for a V8.

Let me just say this without getting into trouble.

V8's are not dead or being phased out at Ford and plenty of development work continues, and not just for Mustang and trucks.

Makes me wonder if D6 can handle a V8 which way will it be mounted?

I'm ready to find out hard facts about the D6 architecture, if it truly is capable of FWD, RWD, AWD. I'm still eagerly waiting to see if Ford ever applies is Ecoboost technology to a V8.

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

And regarding GM's rumored DOHC 6.2L, I think it would be a brilliant move for their tech laden (mid engine?) next gen sports car. And it fits into their lineup nicely with a more 'bespoke' option. I think they can still utilize a few smaller components (rods, pistons, crank, bore spacing, bearings, etc.) for a dash of modularity and reduced costs. It will also give us all a great comparative view as to the differences of both architectures, while GM engineering must love the challenge and opportunity of impressing the other half with what I am sure will be quite impressive, if not leading metrics. I personally love the whole idea, so I hope it is a true rumor and would generate far more buzz than another supercharged OHV motor.

:::fingers crossed for luck:::

Yea details have been hard to come by but the Transit is already capable of doing FWD, RWD, AWD so Ford does have experience doing it.

From what I've seen and some chats with Chris Doane Automotive LLC it looks like refreshed Mustang and F150, plus the all new Expedition. Navigator wont be until NY.
