Ford's "family" of modular engines is designed to streamline production, enabling one plant to produce multiple engines. This family of single- and double-overhead cam engines includes 4.6 and 5.4 litre V8 powerplants as well the 6.8 litre V10, and it has been used in vehicles from pickup trucks to Jaguar luxury sedans.


The largest engine in the series is the 6.8 litre V10, which was used in Ford's Super Duty heavy-duty pickups from 2003 until 2010. It also appeared in the Econoline heavy-duty vans and was used in Ford's medium-duty truck chassis. As a result, it can be found powering many RVs and buses. A 6.2 litre gasoline V8 replaces the V10 in 2011.


The 6.8 litre (415 cubic inch) V10, designated "Triton," is a three valve per cylinder single-overhead cam engine. Output is 362 horsepower at 4,750 revolutions per minute (rpm) and 457 foot-lbs. of torque at 3,250rpm. This engine uses an iron block and aluminium heads. Bore and stroke measure 3.55 by 4.16 inches, and the compression ratio is 9.2:1. Throughout its production run, Ford made the Triton available with a five-speed TorquShift automatic transmission.


The 6.8 litre Triton V10's oil capacity is seven quarts and the coolant capacity is 27.5 quarts.
