Looks an awful lot like a big block GM engine, say, an 8.1L.

Basically it is. There are a few aftermarket versions of production engines. Dart for example.

Thanks Driver you are always helpful!
It sounds to me like this engine will bolt in and hook up when the 8.1 comes out, is this your impression? Has there been any mention of cost on this welcome addition?
Thank you again.

millsrv, The lowest common denominator is that the 8.8L engine should bolt right up to an Allison transmission. I am not going to hold a great expectation that Workhorse is going to be buying 8.8L engines anytime soon but we can only keep our fingers crossed.

Thanks Driver,
When you spoke to the PSI People did retail cost come up? Like for example, if you or I wanted to purchase on of these engines outright?

I had a proxy send me all the press since I was not able to attend the Trade Show this year.
