FCA would have been better served by developing a big block gas engine for their HD trucks.


May want to search around, they have one on its way. The 5.7 is going away. The 6.4 is going to be the base engine and the 426 7.0L (standard version) will be the optional gas motor.
It will be nice to have a powerful engine with a properly matched trans behind it!

Lots of rumors out there about just that. A 7.0L (426 cu in) gas engine that will be going in the HD trucks. I think that's why the 5.7L Hemi is no longer available in the 2500/3500 trucks and it's 6.4L only - because the 7.0L Hemi will be the optional engine and the 6.4L will be the base.

I was watching a bunch of U-tubes of 427 Cobras(AKA Ford's) blowing away just everything in 1/4 drags.

30 Grand...huge amount of bucks for and engine, that a lot of performance enthusiasts don't have.

Think a lot of hot rodders would get a salvage yard hemi with low miles and put a turbo on it. Much cheaper I'm sure.

But many would probably first get a salvage yard...or crate Chevy LS V8...seems to be the hot rodders choice.

I bet they don’t have a problem selling them. The guy who goes to a junk yard to get parts isn’t their target audience. It’s guys like my old boss, who started with a early SRT Challenger and put a blower on it. And thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Until the Hellcat came out. And now he has a Demon.

I could absolutely see him finding a late model donor car and dropping this engine in. Or more accurately, having someone do it.

And I’m sure there is a future for this base engine outside of the aftermarket form.

You are correct. This engine is not marketed to the racers or person doing their own work. There are other options that are far cheaper for what this crate engine is. This is for the older men with money that want someone to build a car for them.

Nor is it being peddled in the RV market. Why is this a tow vehicles or on an RV forum at all?

Because it’s where the motor heads congregate. Feel free to ignore it.
