Boeing 757X? Will Boeing Ever Re-engine The Flying Pencil?

The 757 has been a great success for Boeing, with 1,050 aircraft built before production ended in 2004. It found a popular place in airline fleets – with its long range and performance capabilities. Airlines are still struggling to replace it, with the A321XLR only offering a partial solution. As Boeing considers its next mid-size aircraft, would an update to the 757 be a good option?

Ooh that’d be amazing! I’m interested to here what @Kineheber (757 expert) has to say.

Would be good but it would kill the A321LR/XLR if it happens

Still better than the MAX, 737 is not a good replacement

agreed, a re-engined Boeing 757 using the exact same airframe (except maybe make it out of composites) would be amazing.

To be honest I would be quite interested to see how it would look like if they did create one.
