It's sounding pretty good. 6.2 will prob be in high end models for now, as of the speculation on the f-150 forums.

the new engines are an awesome change for the F-150's. i love the 5.4 in mine but the new motors are going to blow it out of the water.

Yes that's true as well. Besides minor exerior changes and the 4.0 going from OHV to SOHC, they're pretty much still the same. I can't figure out why they took out limited slip differentials for 2010! Sounds like a bad idea. I just hope that since the explorer's redesign is done that ford will turn their attention to the ranger. Hey ford, throw that ecoboost turbo into a ranger!
