The article says it will have a 7.0 DOHC V8. Is this information to be trusted?

Personally, no, I don't trust that part.

Starting in the 2019MY they add to a vehicles NCAP points. You'll see most new vehicles with them in the coming years.

 

I think it's a good thing. As long as they're "hidden" in clear white lenses......I hate seeing the amber colored lenses in taillights for some reason - the all red/white looks cleaner to me.

 

Now if we can only get them to approve the fancy headlights Europe has.

The Export MKZ looks better than the US one as the whole area that is red on the NA versions is clear on the export ones. Also they can conceal it so the amber looks red, BMW and VW/Audi have done that for years on European versions.

 

Hopefully the headlights are coming, Canada just allowed them (Well they adopted EU/UN or US headlight standards). Now if the US will just allow white or amber reflectors in the front too.

Everything I have read says 7.3 pushrod motor.

 

The changes look minimum to the exterior, supposed to be a 10 speed but wonder if that will be across the line or only certain motors/series. Planning on ordering a 19 soon to get the well tested 6R140.

The only consistent thing I have seen/read is that the displacement will be 7.3L. The cam arrangement is still up in the air, but the leading suppositions are either OHV or SOHC. I haven't seen any reliable source say DOHC is a possibility.

 

My guess is that it'll be SOHC, but that's just a guess.

I'm revealed it's 7.3L, the rest of the world still thinks it's 7.0L.

Last time I looked the Hurricane Boss is an SOHC dual plug engine. This 7.3's nickname is Godzilla. It is a beast.

You didn’t “revealed” it. It was leaked months ago in the oil testing sheet.

Well that would make more sense. 7.3 is allot more than 7.0........

A whole bunch missed the oil sheet. Reading comprehension again.

Any more word on this new Windsor built V8 Medium Duty truck engine?

Those in the know: can you at least confirm the number of cylinders? Most everyone is assuming it's a V8, but an upgraded big-bore V10 isn't entirely unbelievable. A six cylinder also seems highly improbable, but possible given a specific set of requirements for medium duty service....

It's a 7.3L V8.

The Camo is a little aggressive, the cosmetic updates are confined to the light fixtures, grilles, fender vent, etc.  We should see the Timberline trim level debut with it as well.  

Some of the Camo is a little inexplicable, especially the Camo reshaping the roof-line.

I'm not expecting any electrification news with this truck, at least I haven't heard of any.

Thanks.

Any word on what the base engine will be? Does the 6.2L continue on or do we see a different (smaller) base engine now that the 7.3L is available?

I don't know, I'd have to ask around.
