2016 Ford F-650-750 Commercial Truck Release Date

If you’ve been keeping up with the Matt Ford blog lately, you may have noticed that we’ve been spending a lot of time discussing the commercial vehicles in the Ford lineup. Not only did we look at the 2015 Ford Transit Connect, but we also looked at how many cereal boxes the cargo van is capable of hauling. While the Transit Connect is impressive, we have caught wind of another upcoming commercial vehicle that will offer a whole nother level of versatility. We’re still a ways away from the 2016 Ford F-650-750 commercial truck release date—which is expected to arrive next spring—but we have a great deal of information about all that the trucks will contain.

The Ford F-650 and F-750 are both classified as medium-duty trucks, but a closer look at their capabilities shows that there isn’t much that either of these trucks can’t do. It all starts with the engines offered under the hood of the commercial trucks. The 2016 F-650 and F-750 will come with the choice of one of two engines—one powered by diesel, and one by regular gasoline.

The diesel engine is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel. Official power outputs have not been released yet, but Ford says that both horsepower and torque ratings will be “competitive.” If the output is anything like the one found in the 2014 Ford Super Duty F-250, the commercial trucks will be able to pump out more than 800 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the diesel engine.

Power outputs haven’t been released for the regular gasoline-powered engine either, but as the 6.8-liter engine will utilize 10 cylinders, we fully expect that the output of the engine will be unbelievably impressive. As you can imagine, when the 10-cylinder engine arrives next year, it will be a class-exclusive offering. Ford has explained that the engine is being offered as it will offer lower fuel costs, but similar power ratings when compared to some of the competing diesel engines on the market.

Whether you opt for the V8 turbo diesel or the V10 gas-powered engine, it will come mated to the Ford-built six-speed automatic transmission, which will be the only transmission offered in the commercial trucks. It comes as no surprise that the transmission will be equipped with Ford TorqShift and a wide-ratio six-speed gearbox, which Ford claims will provide “responsive low-end performance and optimized fuel efficiency.” With so many different systems employed in the 2016 F-650 and F-750, the impressive power will be on call at all times, but as soon as its summoned it will be distributed in a controlled manner, allowing you to stay safe at all times.

As we said, the 2016 Ford F-650-750 commercial truck release date won’t arrive in our new car inventory until next spring, but it’s likely that Ford will release more information on the commercial trucks as we draw nearer to the release date. For more information on the 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750, be sure to check back here on the Matt Ford blog where we will have more information, including the official horsepower and torque ratings, as it’s made available. Until then, be sure to check out some of the other posts on our blog, where we have a ton of information about new and upcoming Ford models.
