Maps of Chicago suburbs look like ink blots.

 

That's a good analogy. To a greater extent than perhaps any other state, Illinois has a tradition of local autonomy.

To my knowledge, the 6.2L V-8 is going to be phased out soon if it hasn't already started


So what will the SD use for the base engine then? People have speculated that it could be the 3.5EB, but this has not been confirmed in any way shape or form. I guess the V10 is ready for another go around since Ford has some level of commitment to it with the 650/750. Not that I think it's likely but they need a gas engine option. I personally would think there's some pretty significant engineering challenges involved with getting a small displacement high compression all aluminum turbo motor to stand up to the duty cycle requirements of the Superduty.

Maybe some are counting the 6.2 out way too early, if next gen Alloy body SD gets a similar weight reduction as '15 F150,

yhay could be enough to save 6.2 as it is the SD gas engine across F250, 350 and 450, it fills a niche and is basically

what SD truck buyers want... for now. The 6.9 diesel os simply on another plane above that and attracts different buyers.

 

Longer term, I'd expect CGI block Ecoboost V6 or V8 to replace 6.2 in SD while 6.2 would grow  larger to 7.0 liter s

and replace the 6.8 V10.

Another piece of the puzzle is that roughly twelve months ago,  Magna bought Getrag.

So  Ford has a major transmission supplier in Magna powertrains and its Getrag aquisition.

Ok guys.  Considering the question as to the possibility of a new medium duty cab, with 150, 250, 350,450 pick ups now aluminum and KTP sourced, and with chassis cab 350 (?)-450-550 now produced in OAP, the only use of steel Super Duty cabs is  650-750-other than replacement parts.

 

Seems like a good case exists for a purpose built medium duty cab.

 

Who stamps aluminum cabs and steel cabs today given age of this thread?

Thx

Windsor Site - Windsor Engine and Essex Engine in one complex. Windsor makes 6.8L V10 . Essex makes the 5.0L V-8

 

 

WEP Windsor Engine Plant and EEP Essex Engine Plant are in the same city but are located several miles from each other. The Windsor Engine Plant site has a smaller physically seperated facitlity on site called The Annex which is the third plant in Windsor. The Annex does head machining and will be assembling the future 7.X V10 engine beginning in 2019.

Thanks for the update...

 

Craiova is also building Figo right? And are we sure B-Max is ending or EcoSport is just being added? I haven't seen announcement from Ford about B-Max being discontinued.

No Figo being built. As of April B-Max is no longer available for factory orders as per dealership information. No official announcement from Ford regarding B-Max production ending, but with order banks closed, and no sign of a 2018 model it looks like it is dead.

 

That said the financial subsidies, deal between Ford and the Romanian government is based on a guarantee of so many vehicles & engines (1.0 EcoBoost)  per year, which has been modified recently to give Ford up to 2025 to meet those per year unit goals. So my guess is that Ford will assemble the new Fiesta Active in Craiova alongside the EcoSport, and current B-Max owners are hoping that the B-Max lives on.

No Figo being built.

 

The new Ford India plant in Gujarat has lots of capacity. New Figo was a flop in its home market. http://www.moneycont...an-1022159.html

 

Exports of new Figo to Europe as the Ka+ started last August. http://www.autocarpr...pe-sanand-21213
