Ford 6.2L V-8

Ford 6.2L Engine Specs, Information

Ford's 6.2L V-8 went into production for the 2010 model year as a high performance option for the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. It was briefly marketed as the "Boss 6.2L", being launched as the latest variant in Ford's Boss engine family. The name is largely misleading and the "Boss" namesake was primarily used internally in the same manner that the latest generation 5.0L finished development with the "Coyote" designation. The 6.2L V-8 replaced the 6.8L Triton V-10 in the Ford Super Duty (F-250, F-350 models) for the 2011 model year. As is normal of trucks with heavier capabilities, the Super Duty version was slightly detuned. The engine was also introduced to the F-150 lineup for 2011, but was ultimately retired following the 2014 model year.

Certain features, such as the engine's large bore and small stroke, were reportedly inspired by Ford's motorsport heritage. The 6.2L V-8 employs two spark plugs per cylinder (16 total for the engine) in order to maximize combustion efficiency, which directly impacts performance, fuel economy, and emissions. Like all modern Ford engines, the 6.2L was subjected to rigorous durability and endurance testing during development, which included bench testing engines at peak power for non-stop 500 hour intervals and subjecting them to high load, real-world driving tests lasting 1000+ hours. For 2017, the redesigned for Super Duty pickups and chassis cab trucks received an upgraded 6.2L V-8 as the standard engine, with torque being increased from 405 to 430 lb-ft.
