Unifor President Jerry Diaz has announced at a press conference that Ford has invested $1.8 billion in the conversion of the Oakville factory for the production of electric vehicles and $148 million in the modernization of the production line of the Windsor factory for the production of a new 6.8-liter engine. Most likely, it will be a V8, although Ford used to have a V10 of a similar volume. The new engine is designed for new versions of the Mustang and F-150 models.

It is unknown whether it will be a turbo engine or not. Rumor has it that it will be a naturally aspirated lower-level unit like the famous 7.3-liter V8 Godzilla. It is also a mystery when the Ford Mustang will get the new 6.8-liter engine — it is unlikely that this will happen in the current generation. Ford recently announced the end of production of the most powerful naturally aspirated Mustangs — GT350 and GT350R. The range of top-end modifications is now reduced to the GT500 with a 5.2-liter flat V8 and the limited Mach 1.
