Too right, and I actually heard from a Ford mechanic that such a thing might be coming for the 2018's.
I don't know how well informed he really is, and he didn't mention specifically whether a V6 or V8, but he indicated that a 4.2L ecoboost is in the works.
Considering that the 3.5L V6 ecoboost has similar hp and torque to the 6.2L V8 (albeit with a very different torque curve), I'd love to see a larger ecoboost in the F250/350.
A 4.2L-5.0L twin turbo in the F250/F350 with per-cc efficiency similar to the current ecoboost would be a force to be reckoned with.
It's obviously not happening in the 2017's since Force has already announced the (largely unchanged) engine line-up, but I'd love to see that in the 2018's
