Will the regular F-150 get a 6.2l ever?

Any news on this at all. Im holding out to buy a new pickup untill i can get one in a super crew. I think we have all heard rumors. But not actual facts yet.

I will be in line as soon as ford puts one out.

Dream truck.

F-150 Screw
Leather FX4
Locker
6.2l/6spd auto
Flare side.


Lets all hope it will happen.

I just posted in the 2009 and newer F150 forum, I bet that it will get the 6.2. Mainly because the Raptor and Super Duty use different camshafts. There is no way, Ford would keep a camshaft dedicated to a low volume model. Since nothing else uses that engine, Ford could have just put in the Super Duty spec 6.2 in the Raptor and gave it a little more power. So, I say count on it.

I have seen production numbers for the 5.4 and the 6.2 engines. The 5.4 really takes a drop after July 2010 and the 6.2 starts to increase production towards the 2011 build for the F150. You can read that as you see fit. There are several F150's running 6.2 engines for test and the parts are very "production" looking. The only F150 that will probably not get the 6.2 is regular cab 4x2. I have seen a few 6.2 extended cab 4x4 F150's out and about.The 5.0 production will start ramp up in August for 2011 production. I would expect the 5.0 in a 4x2 regular cab and probably everything else.

I can see the 5.4 being discontinued in a few years. Prob the 4.6 truck engine too. With the 5.0 taking place in normal models and for the first year or 2 putting the 6.2L in the lariats and platinums.

After how much the F150 crowd whined about mpg, I wouldn't hold my breath. Maybe when they realize a bigger more powerful engine doesn't necessarily mean worse mpg... sure.

I can't imagine with the Dodge Hemi competition that they wouldn't put it in the "regular" F150.

I think that once 4.6L engine supplys are exhausted that they will start putting the 5.0 mustang motor in the trucks. Which would be a close one to the 6.2 and give better MPG than the 6.2L

Good point - I was just drooling over the 2011 Mustang on the fordvehicles.com website.

Is Ford listening? Are we all dreaming? The V-10 is gone, it makes sense to stop production of the 8 cyl. Modular motor. EB and 5.0 aren't enough to tow anything near the rated capacity of the F-150. Remember, there is no substitute for cubic inches. They, and us, need the 6.2 to keep up with the crowd. I really don't want a truck from Gov't Motor Co., either one!! And I don't need a Super Duty any more.

Cubic inches is not a measure of structural integrity. You could have an 8L made of 24K gold and a 2L engine made of titanium. So the 3.5 EB SHOULD be enough to tow the maximum rating of the F150, if it is built right

No. As of right now, there will be no 6.2L's in regular F150's. The next engine lineup will be the 3.7L Mustang TVCT engine as the base, the Ecoboost turbo version of that same engine as the mid-line, and the 5.0L "Coyote" the premium engine.

Any word or thoughts where Ford will rate the hp/tq of 5.0 in the F150?

No idea. I dunno if they're gonna do what they did on the old 4.6L and use a more torque biased intake and exhaust.

You've got the engines right but the order wrong. The Ecoboost engine will be the premium engine and marketed as the tow horse to replace the 5.4

Thats to bad. Hopefully they will get it in there in the next 2-3 years. Im in need of a truck now, but will probably wait. I suppose a 6.2l Raptor Screw with air bag assist for the rear leafs wouldnt be all that bad at towing. Haha.

I dont know if i could live with a v6 under the hood. Guess i would have to drive one to get a true opinion. And i think the 5.0 is an awwsome motor. But i dont think its going to have the grunt to do the towing.
