Nope--the 6.0 is a small block and virtually identical to the 5.3. It replaced the big blocks and is a great engine, but it's not actually a big block. The 8.1 was the big block; the last one from GM.
Dang. I stand corrected. :tu

Ford is coming out with a 6.8 pushrod engine built just like the 7.3. Supposed to be used in the f-150 and mustang. I hate to see the coyote 5.0 go away as it’s a killer engine.
The last time I heard this wasn’t for sure killing off the 5.0. There’s still a ton of rumor wether this is just going to be a special edition f150 and mustang engine or the everyday v8 for the both of those or if it is even gonna get used for those at all and if it’s just gonna replace the 6.2 in the super duty line up.
I’m looking forward to it though.

This was a fun 24 pages of reading. Love my F150 2.7. Getting an average 21.5 mpg. Has all the power I need.

I still have my 2015 TRD Off Road and I'm seriously considering buying a new one. I think I'll wait and make sure the hybrid version is what I want because I want a TRD Pro and that's the only engine option. This is my 2nd Tundra with the 5.7 V8 and except for the poor fuel economy, I love it. It pulls my 21' Triton like it's not back there, even with a lift and 34" tires. I think the V6 will do a good job towing but I'm not so sure it will get any better fuel economy with a big boat behind it. I've owned Toyotas for 30 years, don't think I could ever buy anything else.

My 2007 Tundra with 203k miles on it is hopefully gonna keep me from having to vehicle shop for quite a while. But when I do have to, I’ll be looking pre-2022 model , that’s for sure. Just do not like the new look.

Just watched a review they are very proud of their ugly grill and what’s up with no tow hooks in the front Guess people aren’t planning to go off-road

This. It would be interesting to see a study of how many 4x4 trucks never have the 4wd engaged let alone even see something other than concrete/asphalt...
I've had people come up to me at boat launches to ask how to get their truck out of 4 wheel drive.
Stuck in low and it's 35 miles to camp. :l
They're banging on the shifter trying to shift it. .
I say, did you try putting it in neutral AND THEN switch the 4x4 to 4x2. Tired duck hunters...
Light bulb moment.
