The area under the torque curve is greater at low RPMs with the 6.8 liter V10 than the 6.2 liter V8.

Personally properly geared the 6.2 should be able to pull the same amount of weight, but it may not inspire the same level of confidence or attain the equal fuel economy. (Hard to believe, I know)


Once DI is added onto the 6.2 liter the assumption is that the 6.2 will have enough power to be a better performer overall enough to warrant phasing in the 6.2 to replace the 6.8 without annoying the commercial buyers who tend to go with what they know "just works".

I have a 2011 F350 4x4 6.2L LB CC with 3.73. Coming up on 100,000 miles. Have owned 4 diesels prior. Tow a variety of trailers up to 10,000 and also have a slide in Camper. Live at 7,000' elevation. Tow up to 80mph at times, for extended periods of time.

No regrets going gas, will not buy a diesel again. While I spend a little more in fuel costs, love the dependability and simplicity and low costs of my 6.2.

At elevation, and when towing, had wished I had gotten the 4.30 gears. Probably the only thing I would do differently next time.

Once again, love the 6.2....

Thanks for all the input. I went ahead and ordered a F350 CCLB RWD with 6.2 and 4.30 rear axle. I think it will do great for me and My occasional towing. Now if it would just get here. Again thanks to all.
