Why not just go back to the tried and true 300 I6???? You could out pull a 351w til the High Output came out, with one, and get 20+ MPG's... Out of an F150!!!

I dont think the 4.9 would be capable of what today's F150 is capable of. Especially with the EcoBoost being the dominate engine. I mean the new trucks will tow, properly equipped, 11.5k pounds exceptionally well. As an owner of a 4.9 i can tell you that with 3.55 gears it will never see 20mpg even with the 5spd. To get there it'll need 3.08s or higher which, IMO, renders the truck useless for pulling a serious load. Sure it might do a small aluminum boat and some weekend gear, but not much more. If this collaboration turns out a truck that could pull max capacity at 20mpg, i would be impressed. But then again im not holding my breath.

Exactly what biker said.
Can you imagine trying to squeeze a 300 under the hood of a new truck? I sure can't.

Oh hell no! Have you seen under the hood of an EB. That damn thing is fenderwell to fenderwell, firewall to core support stuffed. Its bad enough half the engines are under the cowl. It would need an Econoline doghouse in the cab! Lol
