That confused me when i first drove my truck out the dealership..

I was used to a redline that started at 6.5, but could go to 7 safely. None of the ford dealers i've asked knew!

Hard to tell too considering how deep (/low?) the engine sound is.

i know my redline is 7000 RPM's. but i dont think you can ever get that high.. im not sure if its a fuel cutoff or if the coil just skips the cylinder every other time.. i believe that the cutoff is around 3500 in park or nuetral depends on the transmission(manual or automatic) and when its in gear i believe it is around 6000 rpm. not that you should really ever have to go over 6000 since you will be falling off the power band. in my opinion you should never really have to go over 4500 unless you are like racing or offroading
