When can we expect info on the 6.2l changes if any for the 2014 model year?
I read in another post the order guides are due shortly and that the ordering starts may 15th. Being three years already I would think they would bump up the hp/tq a little.
Maybe an improvement in fuel economy? I thought I read somewhere that they will have to post fuel economy ratings on the 2014s? or did i just imagine that.
I'm sure it will eventually see some kind of bump, since GM has a new 6.2L and Ram has a new 6.4L on the way out. No idea when though, they could be waiting to see what the competitor's numbers are before they anything.
Too bad if there is any change with 2014 6.2s, Ford could offer an update like they did with the 6.7 diesels a couple of years ago. Reflash of the PCM, and it's good to go. More power or fuel economy. Unless there is some form of internal component change, then all bets are off.

I heard a rumor that the 6.2L would eventually have direct fuel injection at some point. Since it was introduced, about the only change was going to plastic valve covers. It has yet to completely replace the V-10, which is what it was supposed to do.
Wow, you ain't kiddin' about that. Pretty much zero differences. Looks like I'm keeping my truck at least one more year.

Kinda bums me. I want one in the 2014 M/Y. Was hoping they'd be in a hurry to bump it up or add a new one with the Eco technology maybe. Don't the mileage standards for the big trucks kick in soon? come on Ford! More valves? Direct injection? New mapping? Nothing?!!!! Looks like if I get one they force me into ordering to get the 4:30 gears for sure, and possibly tuning it as well. I have a commuter car, so I only use my truck for towing RV, and hauling stuff, and I don't really want a diesel. You s'pose they're still testing the next move, and they're not quite ready yet?
I Look at this way...I'm glad I didn't miss out on some new option/change, since I just bought my truck 2013. Could be, they feel there is nothing worth changing...i.e. they got it right That is what I'll tell myself
Apparently, the big changes to the F-series lineup are coming for the 2015 model year. Meaning, information about them will likely start to trickle out towards the end of this year.
If I had to guess, I wouldn't expect major changes to the drivetrain for the Super Duty anyway. The 6.2L will probably pick up direct injection and some new tuning, which in turn will lead to a slight HP/TQ bump. The 6.7L will probably get some new tuning and other minor changes.
With that said, if they do make a major drivetrain change, it would probably be the addition of another engine option, likely for better fuel economy. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a version of their new 3.2L Powerstroke under the Super Duty's hood. Not everyone needs the expense and power of the 6.7L. More likely, they'll probably just offer a version of the 5.0L or 3.5L Ecoboost, just like they used to offer the 5.4L.
