Long long ago, when I was thinking about buying a new truck, I could get graphs that would show HP/RPM, Torque/RPM and Gal of Fuel per hour/RPM.
Of course, I could buy the same truck with different size engine/different power ratings/different engine manufacturers, so not sure Ford would want to put out that info.

^ What does you picking out a class 8 or other HD truck have to do with light duty trucks in a different century?
BTW, there’s literally dozens of dyno charts for virtually every mass produced engine available right on the googler. And all the rest of the specs.

I think it is interesting to hear that most of "comparison" in this thread to Diesels are in relationship to fuel mileage. To the best of my ability predicting the future.....I've owned my last Gasser and would never tow without a Diesel. For me it's all about how easy it tows and really nothing else. Tows easier, quieter, up hills, down hills and flat. IF I get slowed on a steep up hill grade due to some loser in the fast lane, I can gain speed rapidly up steep hills @ 2500 RPM. And, yes there is a lot under the hood of the new Diesels and it's gonna hurt when "fix it time" comes. But I will live with that in order to have the towing ease.........

Just thinking of the thread title....
Godzilla?? Because it’s Godzilla sized? It’s not the power. Barely outruns it’s 20+ year old replacement.
Nice engine it appears, but entirely underwhelming for that much displacement. Should mean it’ll last a long time though. Which is good. No one buys them for their power!

Well maybe somebody that was shopping would benefit from the idea of comparing fuel consumption at RPM they will be using.
