Scorpion or Powerstroke - Which one

Will they be keeping the Powerstrok name or Scorpion (hopefully not)

There is rumors about both and a guy would think there would be a actual answer??

It's time to let go of the old Powerstroke name with the new engine. I actually like the Scorpion development name but I'd be surprised to see it become the final production name. It needs a new name to differentiate the Ford built engine from its past diesel engines.

I highly doubt it will be called the Scorpion, and at the same time, I think they need to come up with a different name rather than Powerstroke.

Depends on who owns the trademark Powerstrock.

Question and thought all in one. I was once told that the Powerstroke name came form the actual design of the engine. Something about the engine being a stroker. Is this true. Like I said I just heard this. If this is the case then would Ford be able to use the name on the new engine design?
