    Well we have the guy who makes up bullsh!t and the guy who thinks part throttle performance is a thing. It's bewildering, but here we are. It's like a massive car wreck. You know it's horrible, but can't turn away.

    One like this. Cruise rpm is between 1100-1200 rpm typically. Peak torque at ~900 rpm, peak power near 1700 rpm.

    Now that is just me.


    I would also be fine with a 7.3 that has been altered for a more performance mission in a Mustang - it will still have that big motor feel. So I actually agree with you guys on that - but even so it will have appeal. I don’t expect Ford to produce this but even they said it will be available in the aftermarket.


    Big motor in small car. There will be a performance benefit and it will appeal to baby boomers who want that old style hot rod of their youth. They are still the largest demographic and have the most cash. Someone will make and sell these things...

    Ah yes. None of them do that. But he's expected to keep it generally under 1500 rpm for fuel economy reasons. Keeping your cruise speed close to your peak torque speed is ideal for engine efficiency (and lower rpm obviously consumes less).

    We phased those out. The Volvo’s are in and the rentals are Peterbilts these days.

    The ones with that much cash will realize that the tear up to get one in and then end up with a slower car (0-60, 1/4 MI, road course, all of the above) is a foolish idea. Quite literally no smart person would buy something for its performance in 0-20 mph at half throttle.

    And yet still not an actual answer to the question. Let me try again and be more specific, what truck were you just driving that does as stated 2000 ft lbs at 1550 rpm? I wish to know, and I don't want a lecture or some dumb video... just answer the question please. I would also like to know the engine specifics as well, thank you.

    Technically, you said “hugely popular”.

    He already won based on merits. You just haven’t realized it.

    We only have a couple of Internationals left. The Volvo’s also have better transmissions.
