In the next few years, new fuel economy requirements are being imposed on heavy duty pickup trucks. This means that Ford will need to boost the fuel economy of the F250 and up trucks. A 5.2 or smaller ecoboost V8 would be one way to do this. Ford already has experience with a hot V, V8 engine with the scorpion diesel V8, so a hot V version of the coyote would make sense for the heavy duty trucks. A high performance version of this engine for the GT500 also seems to make sense.
