2015 (and its debilitating mpg requirements) is not that far away...and the current fuel-swilling 6.0 L+ V8s in porcine chassis, as well-engineered as they are, are doomed beyond that date. The future starts right about now... Lighter is better, carbon footprint IS a reality, and nimble is best...
The CAFE standards have to be in place by 2016, not 2015, and they are for fleet averages...some V-8's can still exist beyond 2016.
