Cutaways/Chassis cabs with a 6.2 gas engine?

I was having a recall done on my Transit a few days ago (flex disc, bad design from Ford) when I saw a Cutaway with a Knapheide (KUV) utility box on it in the showroom amongst all the blingy F150's. I thought this was pretty unusual to be on display but it was a chance to really go over a Knapheide box which I've always wanted to do. If I were a solo traveler I really think one of these would be a great way to live and carry all my junk. Tons of exterior storage and still a good bit of room on the inside. The only challenge would be insulation. Also, a nice shelf on the inside all the way up both sides. It's really a great design that I'm surprised I haven't seen used by overlanders.

Anyway, I was looking at the window sticker and this Cutaway chassis had a 6.2 gas engine in it! I have seen these in F250's but had no idea Ford was putting them in the van cutaways.

I'm not sure if this is newsworthy or not but I thought it was intriguing. It's a pretty good powerplant I've heard. It's mated to a 6-speed Torqshift trans.

Currently vanless. Weird.

I'd rather have the 6.8 V10, has 60+ more ft-lb torque...
After all that's what our heavy rigs need to get up to speed.

Just doing some more digging, the V10 is rated for more weight, aprox 5k lbs in all configs.... (according to Ford's site)

2001 E350 PSD w/ a bunch of stuff.
And had three other E350s...

The 6.2 replaced the 5.4 in the cutaways for 2018 forward (or was it 2017).

I have always thought that would be awesome for a conversion, especially with that 6 speed.
