The 2015 Ford F-750 is coming soon. Even though the representatives of Ford call their press meeting as a joke at the 2014 Truck Show the “biggest truck introduction of the year” of their business, they are not totally kidding.
In spite of everything, the auto manufacturer is exploiting the trade show to reveal the new 2015 Ford F-750 medium-duty truck that is literally the largest, biggest truck in the global portfolio of Ford. Ford is in the course of a total refresh of its whole commercial vehicle array over the next few months, and it is launching the all-fresh F-750 truck models.
Unlike full-size pickups of Ford, the medium-duty models of the company are modernized rather rarely. Even though the F-750 product line has been treated to meek changes over the years, they have basically been unaltered since 2003, when International Trucks started constructing F-750 models upon its individual medium-duty frames. The 2015 Ford F-750 truck is almost totally a new design and, for the first time in more than a decade, a true Ford-planned and Ford-constructed product, as well as both Powertrain and chassis options.
2015 Ford F-750 Engine
The new 2015 Ford F-750 comes in two models such as F-750 SD XL Diesel and F-750 SD XLT Diesel. Huge quantities of torque are very important for these trucks, and both models are provided with some of the biggest engines of Ford. Buyers can choose either the 8-valve, 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine mated to TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission with accessible power takeoff or a gasoline-fueled 10-valve, 6.8-liter engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This gasoline-fuel engine can be ordered from the plant to be fueled by liquid propane gas or compressed natural gas, as well.
The 8-valve, 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine offers a minimum power output of 200 HP at 2300 RPM and a maximum power output of 360 HP at 2600 RPM. Similarly, the minimum torque will be 520 lb-ft at 1600 RPM and the maximum will be 800 lb-ft at 1800 RPM.
2015 Ford F-750 Exterior
The exterior of the new Ford F-750 gets a total redesign with an appearance more evocative of the existing truck offerings of Ford. The front end of the truck features a novel, interlock grille, aerodynamic headlights and more angular fenders. The improved interior gets a multifunction steering wheel and a 110-volt outlet, including technical options such as Ford Synchronization and Crew Chief fleet administration system.
Obviously, both models of the Ford F-750 have been made to effort, not to appear well. Ford worked together with body manufacturers to generate a chassis that required a slight or no alteration to make conversion easier for work bodies such as dump trucks or tow trucks. Manufacture of the new Ford F-750 will start in the spring of 2014 as 2015-model-year trucks. Though the exact date of release of the truck is not known, from reliable sources of Ford, it is understood that both models of Ford F-750 will be released during the second quarter of 2015.
Though the pricing of both models has not been revealed by the manufacturer, it is expected that the trucks will be available with the starting price as follows:
Ford F-750 SD XL Diesel – $69,135
Ford F-750 SD XLT Diesel – $70,075
