“Half truths” where?That's the car version of the LS with a peakier power band. What you didn't want right?
To your point, here are direct quotes from Ford about why they went small:
In a once unthinkable turnabout, Ford Motor Co. is bragging about how it now makes some of the smallest car engines in the industry. This is coming from a company that once made its money selling big, powerful trucks, SUVs and the Mustang muscle car.
Ford’s race to smaller engines represents a trend in the industry as all automakers woo fuel-conscious consumers and work to meet increasingly stringent fuel-economy standards, said Jesse Toprak, an analyst at TrueCar, an auto price information company.
“We believe that we are going to pay more for energy going forward and that fuel efficiency is the top reason to buy. That is going on all around the world now,” said Alan Mulally, Ford’s chief executive, in an interview with The Times this week.
Mulally said that Ford’s strategy of making powerful but smaller engines is part of the automaker’s goal to “increase the fuel efficiency every year forever.”
If I has as much distain as you had for a product, I wouldn't bash it on a forum with half truths, I'd move on. This world has enough negativity. This is a place where we come to have fun.
Well we know the Raptor is about to receive a V8 finally so Ford must have suddenly got worried about their competition eating their lunch.Watch this Video and you will see the issues you will encounter when trying to drop a V8 in:

“Go shop for any Hellcat now and you get 12K off no questions asked.”And? Does this mean it will easy for you to drop in a V8?
10 years with no competition becausese there is no competetion. . Just because the TRX has a V8 does not mean it will beat the Raptor. Dodge/Jeep hell cats everything. 6 months from now, Dodge will discount the TRX by 12K. Don't believe me? Go shop for any Hellcat now and you get 12K off no questions asked.
That was my intention. Like it or not the manufacturer that offers the most compelling products will be the most successful, if that means fines are added to vehicle costs then so be it.Bottom line is you attacked the integrity of the 2.7 instead of your unhappiness with the engine choices. The global controlling bodies are the problem, not the manufacturers.
There’s an approximately zero percent chance of that ever happening. Political posturing never makes an impact on reality. California can’t even supply its own energy needs as is without 10s of millions of electric cars.Better read the latest headlines. California band gas motors and trying to get rid of on road motorcycles. Other stated usually eventually follow California on EPA stuff...
Cali is a bad example of just about everything.....There’s an approximately zero percent chance of that ever happening. Political posturing never makes an impact on reality. California can’t even supply its own energy needs as is without 10s of millions of electric cars.
