gasoline engines - Ford 6.2L -vs- Chevy 6.2L

The new Ford 6.2L Boss -vs- the Chevy 6.2L Vortec

Ford released initial numbers of 425HP and 425 lbs./ft. or torque, later revised to 400/400. Hopefully we'll see some actual figures soon.

The Chevy produces 403HP and 417 lbs./ft. with a very flat torque curve.

Any thoughts on how these two engines will match up?

I know the guys actually dyno testing the 6.2 right now. The numbers are much closer to the stated 425. Ford will advertise a conservative number just to prevent potential legal ramifications on hp/ torq claims. I also will put my money on the Ford engine any day.

Thanks for your input DYNOTECH. I think Ford has been pretty conservative with their ratings, at least on the V-8's, for a while. Either that or other manufacturers are squeeking every last HP they can out of each dyno run. I really can't wait for some comparisons between the Ford and Chevy in the half ton trucks - the Raptor is going to be the better performing truck hands down, of that I'm sure.

There has been some frustration about the Raptor not getting special engine treatment from SVT, I'm pretty sure the 6.2L Boss will quiet those critics.

Please keep us posted if you hear anything else!

I am guess at about 100,000 miles the Chevy will be leaking/burning oil, the Ford will just be getting broken in.

Knowing Ford truck engine, the torque will be way down low where it's needed while the Chevy's will be way up high. Was the Ford 6.2 SOHC or DOHC?

4.6 Punisher,

What you say is true of many recent Chevy engines, but the 6.2L Chevy truck engine has a very flat torque curve with about 320 lbs. ft. of torque at only 1000 RPM (at least according to one dyno sheet I saw). The 6.2L Chevy is a very strong engine all around.

Ford 6.2 Dyno hp is just over 400 and the torque is just over 430. Single overhead cam.

Thanks again DYNOTECH !

I've noticed Chevy is pushing "most powerful 1/2 ton truck" a lot the last couple of weeks.... that claim might be coming to an end soon.

Numbers are in!

411 HP @ 5,500 RPM and 434 lbs./ft. @ 4,500 RPM!

Maybe Chevy did get word of how potent this new engine is. Market the heck out of the "most powerful half ton truck" while they can. The most powerful half ton truck isn't a Toyota or a Chevy anymore.... it's a FORD!

That you can only get in a Raptor...

For now... *fingers crossed*

Wonder how many Raptor's Ford is selling... I've yet to see one on/off the road! When I retire my '03, if a F150 diesel still isn't available (or dead), I'll be looking at the Raptor.

considering its a smaller launched platform, much like the shelby idea with a limited production (especially the first year) they've probably found homes for the vast majority that have been produced already.

the sales must be doing well enough if they are still shoving the 6.2 out the door the last month of this year as far as ordering goes.
