Yes, the 7.0 V8 should add nore gasoline sales to the larger Super Duty trucks and probably add
more efficiency to the Medium Dutys but really an even bigger gas engine would be the ticket for them...

So that got me wondering if a larger gas engine of say, 7.0 liters would be of
benefit in the F350-F550 zone while an even bigger gas engine (7.5-8.0 liters)
would be an even better fit for the Medium Dutys...

See, I have this feeling that the big gas engines give a grea up front price discount
to buyers wanting a capable truck but not necessarily one that will be maxed out
by towing or pay load, just dependable mechanics in a larger package.

we'd heard about a new, smaller, closer-to-4L, v8 a while ago
what IF
the 4.8approxLiter(289") v8 was not the first priority?
but
that's just the largest they could stretch the smaller one (4.0-4.4)??
& we're just hearing about this bigger variant first???

T-drive was a concept that had an output shaft coupled through a center gear system between two crankshafts spinning opposed to each other. The idea was t cancel out shaking forces. It worked good. In theory. I was actually involved in early concepts. I was never too impressed with it.

They eventually abandoned it because of reliability and vibrations. Realistically the engine I would imagine be N/S facing but we shall see!
Never heard of the T-drive concept. Looked it up and saw they did see they did a Tempo with a DOHC Inline 8
