    Did Ford make a V10 truck?

    I was merging on the highway today in the blazer, and as I creeped up on 60 mph and climbing there was a white ford pickup in the slow lane I was merging into. I jumped on the throttle, hit passing gear for several seconds, and it appeared he was doing the same. Guess he didn't want me to get over in front of him. His effort didn't work however.

    I slowed back to 65 mph and he came back up on me and moved over to the fast lane. I looked over and he had this smirk on his face and hit the gas and let off. I noticed a V10 emblem on the very front of the fender and didn't even realize Ford had one. So I motioned him to go and he did, jumping about a fender before I hit the gas. Mine dropped into second and started climbing around him. By 90 I had 2 lengths and let off. He smiled, I waved and obeyed the speed limit.

    So what is this V10? Are they runners or not? I expected more. I'm familiar with Dodge having a V10 but didn't know Ford had one.

    I believe the newer F-250's have the 6.8L V10 in them.
    It's on jackstands.

    It was an F250 but I have no idea what year it was. All that new stuff looks the same to me, so I couldn't tell you one from the other. Definately had V10 emblems on the very front of the front fenders though.

    6.8 L V10

    The 6.8 L (6760 cc, 413 CID) V10 is another variation of the Modular family created for use in large trucks. Bore size is 90.2 mm (3.552 in) and stroke is 105.8 mm (4.165 in), identical to the 5.4 L V8. Both 2-valve and 3-valve versions are currently produced. The 6.8 L uses a split-pin crank with 72 firing intervals and a balance shaft to quell vibrations inherent to a 90 bank angle V10 engine. The engine's firing order is 1-6-5-10-2-7-3-8-4-9. The 2-valve version was first introduced in 1997, with a 3-valve non-VCT version to follow in 2005. The 3-valve engines were built alongside the 2-valve engines at Ford's Windsor, Ontario LVL engine line, but moved production to the larger Windsor Engine Plant in 2009.

    Vehicles equipped with the 6.8 L V10 Modular engine include the following:

    2-valve
    1997–present Ford E-Series, 2-valve SOHC, 305 hp (227 kW) and 420 lbft (569 Nm) ratings for 2000 and later model years
    1999–2004 Ford F-Series Super Duty, 2-valve SOHC, 310 hp (231 kW) and 425 lbft (576 Nm) ratings for 2000 and later model years
    2000–2005 Ford Excursion, 2-valve SOHC, 310 hp (231 kW) and 425 lbft (576 Nm)

    3-valve
    2005–2010 Ford F-Series Super Duty, 3-valve SOHC, 362 hp (270 kW) and 457 lbft (620 Nm).
    2005-2013 F450/F550 chassis cabs
    2012 Ford F-650 & Ford F-750, 3-valve SOHC, 362 hp (270 kW) and 457 lbft (620 Nm).[38]

    That's funny. The only thing I am an expert on is roofing. And how to make very little money installing it.

    I'm not surprised you beat on him like that. Despite the seemingly not bad numbers, they've always run like shit. There's a reason that an overwhelmingly large percentage of super duty owners chose the powerstroke diesel.
