Arrow 2012 and beyond...FORD 6.2L Mods

Ok...fellow FTE'ers...I have a quick question...and hope you'all are able to assist.

Any changes to the 2012 6.2L in the SuperDuty line? IE:
  • More HP?
    More Torque?
    Better fuel mileage?

If not, then when might we see some improvement (enhanced) mods? I'm just curious...

So...let the speculation begin...

Motor wise, it's the same as the '11's. I heard there were some changes to the transmission that alleviated alot of the shift issues. Anyways, changes from the 2012 order guide below. I'd like to have the one touch up/down on the windows and the Sync Applink, but I can do without. I wonder what a "power sliding heated backlight" looks like? I may have to check one out when I take my truck in.

i think the power heated backlight is the rear sliding window.

Hmm, maybe you're right, maybe it's something they integrated into the rear window. I have the rear slider on my '11 (w/ rear defroster) so it's gotta be something different for the '12's.

Thanks silverbullet for posting this really valuable info!

Since no changes right now on the #1 BUILDs in regards to the 6.2L, then maybe with a BUILD #2???!!! Yeah...I am grasping at straws here, but IMHO...I would really like more Torque with the 6.2L!

I mean...we all know it can be done...just look at 5 STAR Tuning!

Keeping fingers crossed...until I pull the trigger on my NEW 2012!!!

I can defintiely see them doing what they did with the V10, starting it out low on the hp/tq numbers, then bumping them up throughout its lifespan. I already told my buddy at work (who wants my truck), if they bump the hp to a 450+ number, my truck will be up for sale in a heartbeat (for a new one of course). Good luck with the new truck!

I wish Ford would shed some weight on these trucks say 1000 lbs and add 4 valve head technology like the 5.oL motor = More power and less fuel

Onus is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I think we will see a larger displacement engine based on the 6.2. It has room to grow and the chassis cab trucks could use a bigger engine to replace to v10.

I tend to agree with the analogy with the V10. Hope they do that...and miss the 3V...and go straight for the 4V. Seems like a logical and smooth progression with the 6.2L.

If FORD is going to do something...it should be soon...to get ahead of the EPA regulations.

Personally...I think the SuperDuty (at least) will get some sort of Eco engine in the near future. Just based on the huge success in the F150 line. At the very least...the 6.2L could be just an engine to hold off the competition...until the Eco engine arrives.
