Commercial vehicles in Ford’s lineup are very specific. Tax breaks are making them more interesting. Still, you will not buy these models for every day commuting, but for hard work. You can find the 2019 Ford F-650 at construction areas, where big loads are waiting for transportation. With towing capacity up to 50,000 pounds, the trucks can pull a lot of loads. Well, if you don’t need so much power, you can always opt for lighter variants with 20k, 30k, or 40k pounds towing capacity. There are also other options, at first place petrol and diesel engine.
Over the last 40 years, a lot of things changed in the trucking segment. But, Ford’s commercial models are still tough and capable to work. The company is not affected by changes in joint ventures, prices, partnerships with engine and gearbox suppliers. But, the 2019 Ford F-650 is an all American truck. Wheels, seats, drivetrain, frame… Even the Power Stroke diesel engine replaced Cummins unit some while ago. Furthermore, the cab options will make more choices to make it friendlier for occupants.
2019 Ford F-650 Specs
Back in 2016, Ford replaced an old Cummins diesel unit with its own Power Stroke engine. The first couple of years this engine showed durability and capability, so it earned a spot under the hood of next editions. No big updates are coming for the 2019 Ford F-650. Well, we can find a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 as powertrains for Super Duty lineup (F-250, F-350, and F-450). Still, the version for F-650 is downtuned.
Super Duty trucks can produce 450 hp and over 900 lb-ft of torque. For extended lifespan, engineers are putting down these numbers to 330 hp and 725 lb-ft of torque. Still, there are other versions returning even less energy and twist. Mid-range models are offering 300hp and 700 lb-ft, and the least power comes from a base truck with 270 ponies and 675 pound-feet. Special models are going up to 360 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque.
The Power Stroke in it is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A power take-off is a special option for energy supply method.
Under the hood of the 2019 Ford F-650 is a petrol engine as well. However, the Blue Oval company didn’t decide to offer the same V8 unit as for Super Duty’s turbodiesel. In this case, engineers are using one of the famous Triton powertrains. A 6.8-liter V10 is available both for F-650 and F-750. The base setup offers 320 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. However, the engine is also open to taking CNG/Propane package. A six-speed automatic transmission is the same as the one Power Stroke is using. The TorqShift case is coming with power take-off.
