    For the last five years, Ford has been aggressively pursuing downsized, turbocharged engines across its vehicle lineup. However, a significant percentage of F-150 buyers still prefer the naturally aspirated 5.0L Coyote V-8 over the 3.5L or 2.7L EcoBoost V-6 engines. Although the Coyote is still fairly fresh, dating from just 2011 and producing a competitive 385 hp and 387 hp from its 302 cubic inches, Ford is not letting up on the innovation and development. In a Reuters report about Ford’s $447 million investment in its Windsor, Ontario, Canada, engine plants, a report about a next-generation 4.8L V-8 engine leaked out.

    Little is known about the engine other than the fact it will replace the 5.0L at the Essex engine plant and is expected to be a “high volume” engine. An engine specifically made for the Super Duty is also planned, presumably replacing the current 6.2L gas engine. The 6.8L V-10 will also reportedly continue to be produced for applications such as the F-650 and the E-Series cutaway vans.

    The 4.8L will likely top the current 5.0L in power and fuel economy and will almost certainly be paired to the new 10-speed automatic that debuted on the 2017 F-150 with the 3.5L EcoBoost V-6. Direct or dual (direct and port) fuel injection will likely be part of the plan, as well as auto stop-start. Some sort of cylinder deactivation system could also appear to optimize economy at light loads. Taking the speculation a step further, it’s likely the 4.8L could be the basis for a future Mustang engine, either with or without forced induction. Interestingly, the 4.8L displacement translates to approximately 292 cubic inches, a displacement most commonly associated with the Ford Y-block V-8 from the ’50s.
