Just replaced my engine in my 2001 with 320,000 miles. Still worked great but it was getting a little tired and I had an opportunity to get a used with 56,000.

A tick over 161,000 and no engine problems whatsoever. She hauls butt in the lower elevations and kicks butt in the mountains.

A guy at my cousins work has a V10 van used for expediting, with over 1 million miles and still going strong. Never had the valve covers off!

a million....., now thats what I call longevity!! I could never keep a vehicle that long, I live in the north, the body would rust right off it by the time it hit a million miles, or half that for that matter...

I'll give up my Excursion when Al Gore pries it out of my cold dead hands. But I would like to have a newer one.

Like the energizer bunny they keep going,going an going. I wouldnt be surprised to see some off these V 10s hit 500,000 miles. But you know you kind off expect that when you drive a Ford. They run forever without much problems.

Barrel,
I agree as the miles increase, the truck seems to wake up. I heard the magic number seems to be 7500 and 10000 miles. I definately like seeing these big mileage vehicles. A buddy of mine sets up dynos and he has always said, the v-10 is bullet proof
