Default 7.0L V8 Engine in 2019 Raptor

There are a lot of on-line stories that Ford is releasing a new 7.0L V8 engine for 2019. Automotive News reported a new engine early last year. The engine is to be built in Essex Engine Plant outside Windsor, Ont., courtesy of a $700 mil investment Ford announced in March, 2017.

The new engine will replace the aging 6.8L V10 engine used in motor home chassis. and offered in other Super Duty trucks. Some reports claim the engine will be available in the 2019 Raptor. Recall the 6.2L V8 first appeared in the 2010 Raptor before released to Super Duty trucks in 2011.

It should be of no surprise that Ford chose the 7.0L displacement which is, in fact, 427 cu in. Could a 427 Mustang Bullitt be far behind?

anything I've heard has been super duty. I don't believe the front ends are large enough on the 150 to put one in, but I could be wrong on that. more likely to see an SD raptor since they're making one out of the Ranger...

also, the 427, 428 & 429 are all considered 7.0L since they are so close. Will see what they come out with. Unless they sell it as a crate, I see Ford selling a lot of barebone, base model SDs.

Super Duty Raptor would be a real dumb idea. With the off road suspension the towing numbers would be in the toilet.

Not saying they would or wouldn't make em.

Not saying people wouldn't buy them.

Just saying a lot of people will be pissed when they figure out their Super Duty (Raptor) can't tow anything.

It is to possess the same architecture as the 6.2L, just bigger.

OOh side by side would look cool, but was thinking inline. Side by side AND inline, hell yeah, go for it, 14 Liter!
