New Medium-duty Trucks from FordMar 20th, 2014 | By Editorial Staff | Category: New Products
Ford has introduced their all-new Ford F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks. Offered in three cab styles — Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab — and three models — straight frame, dock height and an all-new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing — the new F-650/F-750 features a bold look inside and out, a second-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 diesel, medium-duty six-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission and a host of unique medium-duty truck features.
The 2016 F-650/F-750’s new exterior styling includes an all-new mesh grille framed by hallmark Ford nostrils helps improve airflow for optimal cooling performance. Also new are sharp fenders, aerodynamic headlamps and F-650/F-750 badges embossed in “Bold Leadership” font. The area behind the cab was redesigned to more easily accommodate custom work platforms such as tow truck bodies.
Newly available for F-650/F-750 is the Ford-built 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel paired with a commercial-grade six-speed 6R140 automatic transmission with available Power Take Off provision.
Ford remains the segment-exclusive automaker to offer a gasoline-powered engine for a medium-duty truck. The 6.8-liter V10 is now available for both F-650 and F-750 models with the 6R140 six-speed automatic transmission. The 6.8-liter V10 can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas as cost-effective alternatives to unleaded gasoline.
The Ford F-650/F-750, which will be 2016 model year trucks, will be available spring 2015.
