Ford to produce F-Series Super Duty chassis cab at Ohio Assembly Plant

Ford Motor Co. has announced that its Ohio Assembly Plant will support additional production of the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty chassis cab. Together with Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant, Ohio Assembly will produce F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty chassis cab configurations. The Sheffield Lake, Oh.-based plant, which employs about 1,400 workers, currently manufactures Ford’s F-650 and F-750 in addition to the chassis cab.

The Super Duty chassis cab is made from a frame of high-strength steel and a body of high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy, resulting in up to 350 lbs. of weight savings, according to the company. Ford offers the choice of a 6.2-liter gasoline V8, 6.8-liter gasoline V10, or 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 engine for the chassis cab.
