DEARBORN, Michigan — The 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks will have no limits on power ratings when equipped with the automaker's Power Stroke engine, Ford said.
The new medium-duty truck lineup will be available at dealerships in spring 2015.
Pricing has not been announced.
"While other medium-duty truck manufacturers restrict top horsepower and torque ratings to certain applications, such as emergency services, the all-new F-650 and F-750 will arrive with no vocational restrictions," said John Ruppert, general manager of Ford's commercial vehicle sales and marketing, in a statement on Wednesday.
The upgraded 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine will come with three power levels.
They are 270 horsepower, 300 hp and 330 hp. In addition to the Power Stroke diesel, the automaker will also offer the 330-hp 6.8-liter V10 gasoline engine for both models. This engine can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas.
The new medium-duty commercial trucks are part of a major Ford product offensive. Every truck and van in the Ford Commercial Truck lineup will be new or significantly refreshed in the next 18 months.
Edmunds says: This is all about flexibility and serving the needs of buyers. Customers can pick the diesel engine power rating that best suits their needs, with no vocational restrictions.
