Yeah looks like it’s definitely missing something. Very odd
Even my 97 F150 has one..
I must be the only one here that hates the plastic covers they have added to engines. Couldn't stand it when they started back in the late '80s, still don't like it. The one on my 2020 Ram is ridiculous...it only covers around 1/3 of the engine, so it's not doing much for noise or heat insulation. It's like they just needed enough room to write 5.7 Hemi on it and stuck it on the back.
Yeah, completely different than what is on these things. I think it is purely cost cutting.

My 2011 5.7L Hemi had a pretty nice looking cover, granted, it was all a heavy plastic, but it still looks good. Sometimes the subtle cosmetic things have a way of making you feel like you got a little more for the money. I get it, it has almost zero real effect (some engines have sound deadening material etc) but seriously... I agree with Loki, likely cost cutting. But I'd say you'd be better off not putting the cardboard undercarriage crap on then removing an engine aesthetic. That junk caused more issues collected mud, hanging down when full, catching on stuff.
If it's cost cutting, that's pretty desperate. Saving probably $30-35 per vehicle when the starting price is $50K+...
Loki is correct, just simply has red and white lettering and says Ford Performance on it. Otherwise its pretty identical. I've always enjoyed a good looking engine bay.
Double post, sorry.
At first I envisioned your expy missing the hood. Silly me.
$30 x 1,000,000= ???
$3625 profit sharing check x 50k+
$65k+ x 1,000,000.
But you want to take a $30 part from vehicles, plus the ambient lighting, etc...
I get it, not the same thing, but to the consumer we continue to get less for more.
