I won't make the leap to a new generation van unless I see one with a 10,000lb tow capacity. I think the best I've seen out of the modern vans is something like 6,000lbs.

The Transit can tow up to 7500 depending on the configuration and engine. If AWD is spec'd then it's down in the 6K range. IIRC, the Sprinter is similar.

Not much practicality for camper van, but Roush is starting production of propane system for the Godzilla engine.

Wonder if the newly announced 6.8L will get a crate engine package. Although, I'm guessing it'll share the same block so really there wouldn't be much of a physical size difference?

They come detuned in the vans....any plans to tune it or do any power adders?

Also, any plans to ever offer flatbed builds to the public?

The E-series now has the same power ratings as the F53/F59 and F450-F750. 7.3L V8 Premium
350 hp @ 3,900 rpm
468 ft-lbs @ 3,900 rpm

They offer an optional "Economy" tune for fleets, but so far, anything I've seen on the lots has the Premium tune.
7.3L V8 Economy
300 hp @ 3,750
425 ft-lbs@ 3,250

The difference between the light-medium (F250/350) numbers and the heavy-duty numbers mostly comes down to the certification method used. Here's a good summary of the previous offerings, but the difference in ratings is still applicable. Ford has stated in other documents that the engine is mechanically the same across calibrations.

That said, operating RPM could be electronically capped for the dyno certified calibrations, in order to meet CO2 emissions limits (which apply to medium and heavy vehicles in lieu of CAFE limits).

FWIW - The 7.3-liter engine in a Super Duty pickup cranks out 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm with of 475 ft.-lb. at 4,000 rpm. But this is rated under the chassis certification method, which returns higher numbers.

Stop the tease and give us some ideas about what the plans are. The fact that you got a dually chassis surprised me, so I know something unique is in store.
