Default Future F150 with 6.2 Engine?

I am courious to know what interest there might be for having the 6.2 engine in a future F150, at all trim levels. For those of us that prefer a V8 and, the ride of the F150, this would seem to the ideal setup for many, especially those doing some towing. The larger block V8's are available in competitors, why not Ford?

Probably won't happen at all. The 3.5L Eco puts down more power than the competitors and the Diesel fills a market gap. Big cubic inches aren't coming back. Efficiency numbers matter to the regulatory agencies.....why do you think we have aluminum trucks, 10 speed transmissions, start/stop functions, direct injection, and variable valve timing? The turbo V6 engines do a fine job. I think a lot of this has to do with antiquated thinking, small motor, efficient turbos, direct injection are the future, progress doesn't care about cubic inches. Seriously, look at the performance numbers of the 3.3L base engine and compare them to the 5.4L 2V PI motor. Look at the numbers of the 5.4L 3V in its final year versus all of the current options.

I'm going to assume you mean the new 7.3L Gas V8, but either way....Won't happen because of CAFE requirements. Ford can get away /w the 7.3 and its lower MPG in the 250/350 line b/c those do not factor into the manufacturer CAFE Rating. Not so in the light truck line.

I don't see it happening. especially now that there is an optional diesel engine in the line up

Was gunna say, ford has a fancy new pushrod V8 that should fit, but I doubt they will.

Also, the competitors V8's may have more displacement, but with the exception of the GM 6.2L, none are really putting out any more power than the 5.0. And the 6.2L is hard to get because it is limited to the highest trims and is a $4000 option. It sucks. Literally, GM's new 3.0L diesel in the 1500 is priced the same as the 6.2L. Makes no sense.

The diesel is mystery to me and it seems to be that way for others, because I have seen one ever. No one is buying them because they cost $4000 more than the 2.7 which gets similar MPG's and makes far more HP, and it doesn't come close to outperform the 3.5 Ecoboost. You would have a hard time convincing me that I needed the PSD over any of the gasoline engines.

x2. The 3.0 is a slug compared to the other engines with the exception of the 3.3

The motors are going smaller, not larger in half ton trucks. I would not be the least bit surprised if the largest motor offered in the 2021 is a 4.8 v8 with the next option being the 2.7. I could even see the 3.5 going away since Ford has given the 2.7 beefier internals. They may just offer the 2.7 as a regular and HO version.

numbers dont tell the whole story. Id much rather tow with the 5.4 than a base 3.3. Heck Id even opt for the 94 7.3 diesel with all of 185hp, pulls like a tractor and get 18 mpg towing.
