The Ford 5.8-liter engine was offered in three models of trucks in 1993. The utility trucks with this engine were the F-250 and F-350. A "performance" model called the F-150 Lightning received a slightly modified version of the 5.8-liter engine. As of 2010, the 5.8-liter engine is still used in Ford cars, trucks and SUVs.
The 1993 Ford F-250 and F-350 use the same version of the 5.8-liter engine. This engine produces 200 horsepower. The F-150 Lightning offers a slight increase in power, and its engine produces 240 horsepower.
Torque is the twisting power of the engine and directly affects the vehicle's initial acceleration when carrying weight. The 5.8-liter engine in the 1993 F-250 and F-350 produces 310 pound-feet of torque. In the F-150 Lightning, it produces 340 pound-feet of torque.
The Lightning and the F-250 are the only 5.8-liter-equipped vehicles that have been evaluated by the EPA for fuel economy. The Lightning gets 12 miles per gallon in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. The F-250 gets 11 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway.
The 5.8-liter engine has the same internal features in all three models. It has a bore of 4.0 inches and a stroke of 3.5 inches. This engine has an overall displacement of 5,752 cubic centimeters (or 351 cubic inches). It also has a compression ratio of 8.8:1.
