Ford announces the 2016 F-650/F-750 medium-duty truck lineup with 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel, available in Spring 2015, will feature three engine power ratings, including best-in-class standard diesel horsepower and torque, and no vocational limits on top ratings.
The three diesel power levels available include:
- 270 hp/675 lb.-ft. torque (best-in-class standard)
- 300 hp /700 lb.-ft. torque
- 330 hp/725 lb.-ft. torque
Multiple ratings provide customers with the flexibility to scale engine power to work applications and operations.
“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 Ruppert, general manager Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing. “We’re giving our customers the power of choice to determine what’s best for their business.”
The second generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel builds upon the success of the diesel engine found in the F-Series Super Duty lineup. The F-650/F-750 6.7-liter Power Stroke and commercial-grade six-speed TorqShift HD automatic transmission have been developed and tested for medium-duty applications. The powertrain offers an unsurpassed five-year/250,000-mile limited warranty.
In addition to its Power Stroke diesel, Ford remains the segment-exclusive automaker to offer a gasoline-powered engine for a medium duty truck. The 330 hp, 440 lbs-ft of torque 6.8-liter V10 is now available for both F-650 and F-750 models with the TorqShift HD 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 gasoline.
