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.
