Offering plenty of power, choose from the standard 362-horsepower 6.8-liter V10 engine paired with the TorqShift 5-Speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, or available 300-horsepower 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine paired with the TorqShift 6-Speed SelectShift Automatic. Looking to cut fuel costs and reduce gas emissions? Ford offers the CNG/LPG Gaseous Engine Prep Package that includes hardened exhaust valves and valve seats on the 6.8-liter V10 engine, allowing you to take advantage of the usage of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid propane gas (LPG). The Ford-built TorqShift 6-Speed SelectShift automatic transmission is engineered for high-torque performance and dependability. The SelectShift feature offers two driver-initiated modes, Progressive Range Select and Full Manual Mode. In Progressive Range Select, you can limit the range of gears to lock out overdrive for consistent speed over hills and mountain ranges. Full Manual mode allows you to go all the way up and down the gearbox to put you fully in control. Allowing you to gain extra control of your Ford Chassis Cab F-550, the available Power Stroke 6.7-liter V8 Turbo Diesel with 6-speed TorqShift automatic transmission offers a tow/haul mode with engine braking function. Activated with the push of a button, the engine back pressure automatically adjusts and the transmission holds a specific gear (depending on grade) to help slow the vehicle. Allowing you maximum control over cab and its haul, and when you need to tow big loads, the Ford Chassis Cab F-550 offers maximum towing capacity.
