Interesting engine. I hear that it came about at least in part due to the high up-front cost and high maintenance costs of the 6.7-liter diesel -- not to mention diesel fuel is about $1/gal more in the U.S. And I assume the V10 is no more. Is that right?

From what I could find, the V-10 was/is still around but this would probably kill it.

The Wiki is not reliable and other sites may be old sites out of date.

I'm looking forward to the engine becoming available and the performance engine builders getting hold of it and seeing if it can be turned into a performance or race engine. So far it looks like this a born-and-bred truck engine for relatively low-rev hauling and towing, but we'll see.
