New 5.5L 383hp V8 from 2007 S-Class in other models?

Does anyone know when MB plans to use the new 5.5L 383hp V8 from the 2007 S-Class in their other models? I plan on buying an R-class very soon but would rather wait for the 80 extra horses.

Or another question would: how long does MB usually take to trickle-down their new engines to other models? i.e. 1 year, 2 years, etc ...

Thanks!

I think the W164 ML will eventually use the new engine.

383HP is too little for a 5.5. The S klass have a AMG 55 with 493hp.

Not really, look at Lexus' engines.

The new 5.5L engine will be an evolution from the 5.4L engine used in the W210 & W209 etc. Old one produced 349 Bhp, so it makes sense for the new one to be around 383.

I thought the new 5.5L engine was a V8 version of the 3.5 V6 with 4 valves per cylinder.

Also it is naturally aspired, the AMG 5.5 in the S-Class was supercharged.
