Why do you say that? Is it because you feel they've invested so much into the Ecoboost line to have a similarly competing engine or do you have other reasons? I'm curious.[/QUOTE

Ford started developing a diesel but ended up going the route of the Ecoboost. there is an article where Ford talked about the diesel and how they ended up going the route of the Eco instead i'll see if i can find it.

As much as I'd like to see a twin turbo again, I doubt they'll do it with all the turbo issues the 6.4L Powerstroke had. There's a reason the 6.7L Scorpion is a single-turbo motor.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't they going to try to use one of the Land Rover diesel motors used in Europe? Obviously this was back when Land Rover was a Ford company.

If I am running an oil burner it will be a big boy...If the powerful V8 goes by the wayside then the Raptor will pretty much be dead. Not may folks will pay for a SVT that goes rinngggyy dingggy rinnggyyy dingggyyy! Maybe I am old school but hey ran a Ford for a few years and now that they finally have a good V8 they may kill it?? Oh well we will see--may just get a 14 and mod the snot out of it lol...

I agree with you on the no "ringy dingy ding ding" thing. But I thought you were displeased with your Raptor a few months ago and wanted to get something else. Glad to hear you're at least thinking on sticking around though.

TopSpeed article online says the engine should remain the same with additional power, maybe around 450. I doubt Ford would eliminate the 6.2 after only 5 years production. Especially since the first year was extremely limited and wasn't released across the line until 2013. Don't forget the 6.2 is the base engine for the Super Duty line. I highly doubt Ford is going to put the Coyote into Super Duty trucks as a base engine.

True...I didn't think about that.

Yes the biggest thing was the Moon Roof breaking after being opened less than 5 times and the AC sux but I fixed that hahahahaha!!! Blows colder air than my oil burners now!!!

Will catch a lot of crap from some but I put more freon in in! Put in about 5 oz (almost 5psi on the low side)and WOW did it make a difference! Now the cooling fan comes on high (did not before hardly ever even on the ranch in NM) when it is hot out AND the ac is set at 65 on manual!

Yesterday 97 outside of Market Street (grocery store) I got stuck on the phone about 6pm----sat with the engine running for about 15 minutes and the AC was blowing air so cold I almost had to turn it down!!! No joke!!!!

Now I love the Ford AC!! Maybe I got lucky but now you can hang meat in it.

I mean, I wouldn't expect to put freon in a new truck. My Titan has gone over 6+ years without adding any Freon and it still blows ice cold.

But hey...at least you weren't wondering why the range on your keyfob was bad without changing the battery
