There not a lot to fix. You buy it, you drive it. It goes down the road.

We are here, just waiting on the next 3.73 vs 4.30 debate. There isn't much else to talk about. Maybe someone moaning about 12mpg in an 8k lbs gas brick truck making almost 400hp.

No Problems

There just is not any controversial things happening with trucks powered with the 6.2.
My truck just runs great. Just passed the 5000 mile marker, and not even a small issue with the engine or truck at large so far. My gas mileage is better than I expected. The acceleration with the 3.73 gears is better than I expected. It tows better than I expected. The ride is better than I expected. I could go on but you get the idea.
I think most 6.2 owners have similar experiences.
Most negative comments I read about the 6.2 come from those who do not own one.

I guess we are all just bricks in the wall.
(Sorry I could not resist the Floyd reference)

I know the 6.2 isnt the 6.7 but man I have no complaint about the amount of get up and go the 6.2 has when you put your foot on the pedal, lots of power.

I have never really put my foot into just for the hell of it because I just dont treat my trucks that way, but I imagine that if I ever did it's be impressive. because for the amount of power the 6.2 has it has no problem moving this truck down the road at all.

Pick mine up on Monday, if everything I read is accurate I shouldn't have anything to complain about for a decade!

i hate my 2014 6.2 powered superduty. with 96,000 miles on it, is so comfortable to drive i almost fall asleep in it, will tow anything i want any time i want it too, will pass almost everything on the road except a gas station, it is a truck, and should ride like one, not like a lincoln town car

Glad to hear and see little to no problems with the 6.2. I like dependability with a good dose of power when needed. Can't wait for mine to be built.

Mine is a F150 so I get 14 and I am sticking with my 3.55's. It pulls my friends dump trailer just fine loaded down with seasoned Oak
