The 2016 Ford F-750 truck will from now on be easier to build since Ford took upon itself the production of all its components, while retaining the lineup of engines – Ford produced all well – and offering the same towing and hauling capabilities known to these type medium duty trucks.
Ford is also praising its more driver-friendly cabin, which has been made quieter than in the outgoing model thanks to the engine’s tweaked operation, as well as an upgraded warranty that boosts its position in the industry. The F-750 also comes with a new exterior design, while the interior looks basically the same as the last time.
Exterior and Interior
The 2016 Ford F-750 new looks feature, among other things, an enlarged grille as well as the updated hood and fenders. What’s more, the headlamp are brand new too, and behind the grille, headlamps and the sloping hood the cab is lifted from the “light duty” Super Duty model. Meaning, the entire cab structure, including the doors, windshield, and roof, are the same as an F-250.
On top of all that, the F-750 also sports a side grille that imitates those found on the F-250 through F-550 models. Naturally, the heavy duty truck such as the F-750 rides on a huge ladder frame including large wheels and tires.
The model’s body style is that of a chassis cab. That means there’s nothing behind the cab other than the frame and drivetrain. However, if you want to install upgrades, you can choose between dump beds, ambulance bodies, roll-back flatbeds, or bucket lifts.
Inside the cabin, the interior is all about business. So you won’t find any creature comforts such as MyFord Touch, or soft-touch trim panels, or leather seating.
The 2016 Ford F-750 is fitted with a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbodiesel. The output for the Power Stroke is rated at 270 horsepower and 675 pound-feet of torque, the mid-range output is 300 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque, and the max output available is 330 horsepower and 725 pound-feet of toque.
Those output numbers mostly surpass the 6.7-liter Cummins’ levels in the outgoing F-750. Unfortunately, Ford decided to ditch a manual transmission. Now the Super Duty offers Ford’s in-house TorqShift six-speed automatic gearbox.
2016 Ford F-750 Release Date and Price
