Gas or Diesel Engines – You Choose.
For 29 straight years, Ford has been the number one manufacturer of commercial trucks in the United States – a track record built on proven ruggedness, dependability and performance. Ford is the only truck manufacturer that builds its own diesel powertrain in a Class 6-7 Truck, as well as the Ford F-650 Super Duty Work Truck being the only medium-duty truck offered in your choice of gas or diesel engines, and the only one’s to offer a gas engine in a Class 6-7 Truck. Made mainly for use as utilitarian trucks for towing, heavy hauling, use in construction and are intended to appeal to businesses and municipalities, the F-650 was engineered for one purpose. Hard Work.
Standard under the hood of the Ford F-650 is the Cummins ISB 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel V8 engine, featuring the latest Cummins technology. The Cummins Diesel comes in your choice of 11 horsepower and torque ratings, with select ratings restricted to emergency vehicle/recreational vehicle applications only. Paired with the available Fuller manual transmission will deliver the control and flexibility you want with a diesel engine and is offered with or without overdrive.
Today, more than ever, the engine under the hood of your truck affects your bottom line. The Ford-built 6.8-liter Triton V10 Gas Engine offers a high level of performance with its 362-horsepower and 457 lb-ft. of torque. The 6.8-liter V10 is paired with a 6-speed TorqShift SelectShift automatic transmission engineered for high-torque performance and dependability. The TorquShift transmission with the V10 provides power takeoff (PTO) provision, so if you operate a snowplow, aerial lift, spreader, hydraulic hoist, pump or other power equipment, diesel power is not your only option. And with the available CNG/LPG Gaseous Engine Prep Package offers two effective ways to lower operating costs with a conversion to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas fuel system.
