Ford F-650, F-750 to offer three diesel power ratings

Ford announced that the all-new F-650/F-750 medium-duty truck lineup with 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel will feature three engine power ratings, including standard diesel horsepower and torque and no vocational limits on top ratings. The three diesel power levels available for the 2016 Ford F-650/F-750 are:

  • 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.

“The all-new F-650/F-750 will arrive with no vocational restrictions. We’re giving our customers the power of choice to determine what’s best for their business,” said John Ruppert, general manager Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing.

The second generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel builds upon 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 a five-year/250,000-mile limited warranty.

Ford designs and builds its own diesel engine and transmission combination – ensuring the powertrain will work seamlessly with all chassis components and vehicle calibrations. This approach enables Ford engineers to optimize vehicle performance across the entire lineup and further refine the powertrain to the specific needs of the customer.

“Engineering the truck and powertrain together is the best way to deliver a great product for the customer,” said John Davis, Ford commercial vehicle chief nameplate engineer.

2016 Ford F-650 and F-750, the toughest medium duty pickup

Key features on the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel are its compacted graphite iron engine block that enhances durability and helps reduce noise, vibration and harshness, according to the manufacturer. The reverse-flow layout places the exhaust inside the engine’s V-shape, while the air intake is positioned on the outside of the V. This segment-exclusive design naturally improves a variety of attributes.

Shorter airflow from the exhaust system to the turbocharger sitting between the engine’s cylinder banks improves turbo responsiveness, Ford explained. Positioning the turbo inside the engine’s valley helps isolate the engine’s hottest temperatures, aiding performance and efficiency while also reducing noise, vibration and harshness for improved driver comfort.

During testing, the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel endured the equivalent of 500,000-plus miles on an engine dynamometer, replicating the duty cycle of the harshest-use customer.

In addition to its Power Stroke diesel, Ford offers a gasoline-powered engine for a medium duty truck. The 362-HP, 457 lb.-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.

Offered in Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab styles and in straight frame, dock height and an all-new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing applications, the 2016 F-650/F-750 medium-duty truck lineup will be available in spring 2015.
