The 6.2 is an option in the F150 Platinum but not in the lesser F150 trucks. I don't know how the weights of the Dodge and Ford compare but I would think with similar gearing a 6.2L F150 should be tough to beat. That's certainly not saying a new Hemi won't smoke a 6.2 F150.....I'm just judging by the numbers.

According to Wikipedia, the 6.2L in the Super Duty trucks only make 385HP/405TQ. Kinda odd that the heavier trucks would make less power than the lighter duty trucks with the same engine but that's what it says. In the heavier Super Duty truck with power levels closer to a new Hemi (less actually) I would think a new Hemi Ram would easily smoke the 6.2L.
