V10 F-350 on the Farm

Ford’s biggest modern gasoline engine made the 2010 F-350 a real workhorse.

Ford Motor Company has utilized a variety of gasoline engines in both the F-150 and the Super Duty lineup, but FoMoCo’s biggest modern gas engine was only offered in bigger trucks. That is the 6.8-liter V10, offered in the Super Duty from 1999 through 2016, delivering the most gasoline power and capabilities during that era. For the F-Series lover who wanted a work truck that could do more than any of the F-150s, the V10-powered Super Duty was the best option during that era.

Unfortunately, the V10 was removed from the lineup after the 2016 model year and in the used market, many eight-year-old Super Duty trucks have been worked to pieces. However, this listing for a 2010 F-350 with the V10 over on Ford Truck Enthusiasts is proof that there are some clean, V10-powered pickups available with a little hunting.

This 2010 Ford F-350 with the V10 engine and the single rear wheel layout was posted in the FTE Marketplace by “mystic201” and the truck looks like a dream score for someone on the hunt for one of these ten-cylinder pickups. The seller points out that it has a bed cap, Line-X bed lining material and newer Michelin tires. He also states that new spark plugs were installed around 60,000 miles and the oil has been changed every 3,000 miles since the truck was new.

The exterior looks like the truck could be new and the details state that the leather is in excellent condition, but the seller does point out that the truck was wrecked around 90,000-miles ago. The damage to the passenger’s side front corner was fully repaired with Ford parts and since the accident, there have been no issues.

Today, the truck has just over 101,000 miles on the odometer, but you would never guess that by looking at these pictures.

V10 Details

If you are unfamiliar with the 6.8-liter V10 engine, it was offered in the Super Duty lineup from 1999 through 2016. The introduction of the 2005 model year brought about the strongest iteration of the V10, with 362 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. That gave it an advantage of 62 horsepower and 92 lb-ft of torque over the 5.4-liter V8 that was offered in both the Super Duty and the F-150, while also making it the most capable of the modern Ford gas engines in any truck.

If you are in the market for a new-to-you Super Duty with the V10 engine, one of them is available in Pennsylvania with a price of $18,500.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
