    You do know that Demand Detroit and Detroit engine building is owned by Daimler...aka, Frieghtliner and Western Star...

    3.2L Power Stroke produces 185 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. I believe any cab Ford produces for Medium Duty will be derived from an existing model or Ford will just out-source the cab like they did with the LCF cab from Mazda.

    Here is another thought about Medium Duty cab structures to keep the costs down, and give an updated common cab across the line. Use Transit "top hat" on a specific floor pan to fit F650/750 chassis and same for E-Series, the differences in nose length being taken care of similar to how Ford uses a common cab in F150 through F600 but with unique front structures forward of the windshield. FYI, Transit is 81" in width and F650 is 74.6"....

    New light & medium duty news

    Here is the point, in Medium Duty, the chassis is fine (even E-Series, with her twin I beam front suspension) the issue is depth of coverage. We have said that Ford will not update the engine bay of E-Series, but here we are, E-Series gets the 7.3L gas motor. Put the I-5 Powerstroke in E-Series with a ten speed and 4:30 rear gears and point it directly at Izuzu NPR line and it's GM derivatives. ADD ON: In F-650/750 Mediums, 750 could use a dedicated larger motor but we have beaten the "Cummins/Alison" combo add on to death....as for cab structures, time will tell when the cabs transition to aluminum so we'll see.

    I've always felt that the 3.2 5 cylinder diesel would have been a good fit in E-Series...

    In 1982, my dad bought a new E150 for a shop van and it had an 300 I-6 in it, when we replaced it in 1990, we got another E150, again with a 300 I-6....E-Series is a good solid chassis that can serve well into the future for medium duty lines that need a short nose.

    Whats this...?

    Five bolt wheels point to something C2 based...if it was based on Ranger chassis, it would have six....

    Was the offset different? I know the bolt pattern is the same.

    I can tell you that in the case of my 2017 Lincoln MKC, if I get out of the car with it running and I have the keyfob on me, as soon as I close the door the horn will honk twice.
  14. Well sure, since a portion of "the head" was taken over by the intake manifold.
