Then Ford will simply not be on the same level unfortunately as the Wrangler.
Leave a V8 to the aftermarket I guess but it seems silly that they can't focus sales on Turbo-V6 and then offer a naturally aspirated V8 (make it ridiculously expensive then the take rate will be lower).
Have you guys driven a Turbo F150 vs a V8?
The turbo is great for certain things but what about longevity and real world towing.
There is no replacement for displacement, so I guess I'll wait for Hennessey et al. to put a Godzilla 7.3 in one.
