It will be awhile before that plays out but combustion engines will be a thing of the past.
The development dollars are being spent towards lower cylinder and displacement to get greater performance vs v8's getting current v6 mpg.
V8's are the best but 15mpg and a 90 mile daily commute don't make for the best combination. EB4 comes up short on performance and v8 is not practical for long DD commutes.
Ford Racing has done some pretty amazing performance upgrades on the EB4, makes me drool for a EB6.
