Going to pushrods, and 2V, is going backwards in engine technology!

The 6.7 PowerStroke is pushrod and 2V. The pushrod design allows for a weight savings and its coupled to the 10 speed auto.

Kind of what I was thinking. The grill reminds me of Micky Mouse ears.

Might be the engine we've been hearing about but I'd be willing to bet it won't make it into the Raptor.

Read the Car & Driver article. Ford did it for a reason, Low Maintenance, High Reliability. It also creates a big engine with a small footprint. No long chains to stretch, or actuators to fail. Sometimes simple is the best.

Let me say it this way.... I do not regret ordering a 2019 and I absolutely love the 19 platinum super duty front end.

I'm not surprised they didn't change the interior as its less than 4 years old really.

Bet when they redo the f150 we'll see something revised with a bigger screen. Even with that said I'm a **** and rotary dial guy, the screens are way to slow. Its not the 1990's and I'm not that impressed with pressing a touch screen thats slow.

They've all been 4V since the 6.0 so yeah.

And, more low end. OHV engines always make more bottom end torque than OHC engines, unless the OHC engine has a turbo on it.
