Default Predictions - the end of the 5.0

Pivoting off a different thread that was on a tangent.

When do we predict the 5.0 will be discontinued? Itís been murmured about for a little while now. The trend is heading the other direction and it seems the 5.0 may be living out its last days. Brandon Ford, 2nd largest Ford dealer in the world, currently stocks five 5.0ís, out of just under 800 trucks. The current gen 5.0 has seen quite a few issues and I think itís fair to say itís reputation has been tarnished to some extent.

So when do we think the 5.0, or V8 F150ís will end for good, if at all? If I had to bet, Iíd say it lives out 2020 model year and If the F150 is completely redesigned for 2021, it will not be offered with a V8.

Iím not a 5.0 basher and I am actually looking to scoop a RCSB 5.0 before too long. Just seems like the writing is on the wall.

As long as Ford produces Mustangs there will be a 5.0 option for the F150.

I think the F-150 will continue to offer a V8 option for the foreseeable future.

For more anecdotal evidence my selling dealer (Crossroads Ford in NC) has 874 F-150s in their combined inventory. The breakdown is as follows.

165 2.7 EB
26 3.0 diesel
76 3.3 V6
344 3.5 EB
263 5.0 V8

I agree. Dealers order and inventory what sells and buyers are asking for in their Market. For Example:

Brandon Ford:
5 - 5.0L
314 - 3.5L EB
395 - 2.7L EB
76 - 3.3L NA
3 - 3.0L Diesel
793 Total F150s

I think the v8 will remain for a while. There are a lot of ‘18 year model trucks riding around here in Texas without ecoboost badging so there are a lot of folks still wanting the v8. If we are going off the logic of tarnished reputation how long will the 10 speed be around?

That makes sense for some good reasons. BUT, if Ford were looking for an out on the 5.0, it would make sense to ease out gradually and not spike it on us all at once IMO. Removing it from the F150 would be toward the beginnings of this process, with the Mustang the bastion platform.

Ford just patented a new hybrid electric sports car with the 5.0L V8 and an electric power plant coupled together. Rumor has it the new hybrid F-150 is going to be the 5.0L V8. No, the 5.0 isnít going anywhere.

We also canít ignore Ford just spent millions on the new gen 3 Coyote for 2018 adding direct injection and plasma arc cylinder liners along with other new internals.

Ford is not making the Mustang or the F-150 without a V8.
