Ford would have been annoyed by the arrival on the market, a few weeks ago, of the Ram TRX 2021 V8 engine 6.2 L Supercharged 702 horsepower, it is on the order of the conceivable if we believe the latest information from the Windsor plant in Ontario, Canada.
It is this site that currently produces the “Godzilla” 7.3L V8 engine for the Blue Oval brand’s Super Duty trucks, large vans, camper vans and large utility vehicles.
A V8 is always good!
The origin of this information is to be found on the side of a meeting of the Unifor union which represents the employees of the factory. This would have taken place on September 23 on the industrial site.
It is Jerry Dias, president of Unifor, who mentioned, as part of his remarks and official announcements, a new engine block which would cubic 6.8 L. This block would be produced on the Canadian site specializing in the manufacture of engines.
We still know little about this upcoming V8 engine that would faint any staunch European environmentalist, but this announcement corroborates another statement from the Unifor union regarding new engines to come.
Several credible sources affirm that this new “6.XL” engine is well planned for the next generation of the Mustang coupe and the F-150 pickup.
A Big Block for two
Dearborn’s builder has yet to make any official statement on this matter. However, sources close to the Mustang and F-150 “Next Gen” files have suggested that the next F-150 Raptor could use a large 7.3 L V8, the 5.2 L Supercharged V8 of the Mustang GT.500 or a new equivalent engine. However, it is rumored that this V8 could be optional or integrated into a Raptor range composed of two models.
This last option therefore leaves a place for this famous punchy 6.8 L V8 that we talk about more and more often on the other side of the Atlantic.
Case to be continued.
