Ford planning to replace the 6.7 already?

Today a friend of mine showed me a article in the June Car and Driver. It said that ford is considering getting away from the diesel because of the cost. I couldn't believe what he was telling me about the new motor until I read it. Ford calls the new motor I believe a DI motor. It said it would be a 5 liter twin turbo gas motor that could produce the same numbers as the diesel and more efficient. They said the truck will have 2 fuel tanks one will hold ethanol. The article stated that the truck would run under normal driving off unleaded and when the power would be needed it would direct inject the ethanol. I know you guys might think I am making this up and I probably would to but if you have the June edition of Car and Driver it's in there.

I feel that technology is years away, i would probably imagine it coming out in a light duty truck application first to prove itself...

I imagine the 6.7 will be here for years to come... for dropped a ton of $$$ in designing it

The engine you're probably talking about is the so-called "Bobcat" duel fuel engine that is a variant of Ford's Ecoboost engine family Ford EcoBoost engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The technology is already here, though i haven't heard of the engine specifically going into a superduty.

That is very interesting. I bet that GM and Dodge have something in the works like this too.
