.. then they're gonna have to have time of that MPG
Hopefully that will just motivate ford to make an even more kick *** engine to go in the raptor instead of just eliminating them!
Don't forget, the new F150 is supposed to lose ~700lbs. Take 700lbs off a current Raptor SCAB and it will get 18mpg on the highway. Add some cam profile changes and tuning and I bet they can do better than that. The Eco will get a 2 or 3 mpg bump as well with the weight reduction. I don't think for will have an issue meeting the new standard. In short, they aren't getting rid of the 6.2.
