2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 Diesel to Offer Most Standard Power

By Matthew Askari | May 21, 2014
The 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks will go on sale next spring, and when they do, they will offer three different horsepower ratings for customers to choose from. The 6.7-liter V-8 turbo diesel will feature 270 hp, 300 hp, and 330 hp ratings--and 675-,700-, and 725 lb-ft torque ratings respectively--allowing customers to choose based on use and need. The engine is paired to a six-speed TorqShift DH automatic transmission. The 270 hp entry-level engine represents the best-in-class standard power rating. Ford also says there won't be any restrictions or vocational limits on top ratings. "While other medium-duty truck manufacturers restrict top horsepower and torque ratings to certain applications, such as emergency services, the all-new F-650/F-750 will arrive with no vocational restrictions," said John Rupert, general manager of Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing. "We're giving our customers the power of choice to determine what's best for their business." The 6.7-liter V-8 turbo-diesel features a compacted graphite iron engine block that enhances durability and helps reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. It also comes with a five-year/250,000-mile limited warranty. Ford put over 500,000 miles on an engine dynamometer, replicating the cycle of the harshest-use customer. The Blue Oval is also the only automaker to offer a gasoline engine in this segment, a 6.8-liter V-10, capable of 330 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Source: Ford
