The Ford V10 engine was made for Ford Trucks, Vans and SUV type vehicles. It’s part of the Modular engine family. In fact, it’s almost the same engine as the 5.4 liter V8, except it has 2 more cylinders. It’s code name is LVL. Brought out in 1997 as a powerful, fuel efficient gasoline engine from Ford, an alternative to diesel power.
Both a 2 valve and 3 valve version was offered. Here is the the lineup of vehicle using this engine:
Vehicles equipped with the 6.8 L V10 Modular engine include the following:

From my studies on this engine, owners mention that it’s a powerful good pulling engine. Some folks compare it’s power to the power of the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel engine. Not only that, I don’t see any serious repetitive problems with this engine. It seems as long as you stay on top of maintenance, a long and trouble-free service life can be expected.
For early model V10 Ford engines, it’s very apparent our customers want a fully updated, remanufactured engine for their vehicles. Obviously we are a remanufactured engine supply company, but people ask about used engines on occasion anyway.
My thinking pattern is as such. Since these engines seem to last so long, it’s very hard to find low mileage used motors. Anyway, it’s hard to beat a fully updated and 100 percent rebuilt engine, as opposed to buying a new truck and going into big debt.
In fact, people who buy our remanufactured engines usually tell us the cost endued up being very low, especially when they compared it to the amount of trouble free miles delivered. That is priceless. A true value.
