In re plotting the new fours and the V-8's demise, turbocharging shortens engine life, so that's just the carmakers playing to unknowlegeable, financially-challenged, short-term owners vs. people who know how to choose better and maintain their cars. For most carmakers, I don't think that V-8s were the peak. Detroit always substituted brute force and overweight engines in place of sophisticated, high-caliber engineering. IMHO, the venerable six and its multiples is the optimum and best-balanced engine configuration. But I remain open to other views.
