Ford Motor Co.’s vice president of global product design calls time on the V8:

Big pickups would use four-cylinder engines, luxury sedans would come with V-6s instead of V-8s. The venerable V-8 engine would be found only on big commercial trucks.

Ford went down the no-V8 path in Australia from the mid-80s until their reintroduction in 1991. These things, like engines themselves, run in cycles.
