Still celebrating the opening of our Medium Duty Truck Service And Repair department, today we feature another story from within that industry. Today we’re taking a look at the all-new 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750, as well as the plant where they’re built.
Production of the trucks at the Ohio Assembly Plant, previously built in Mexico, helps secure more than 1,000 hourly UAW jobs and a $168 million plant investment in the United States. Offered in Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab body styles and in straight-frame, dock-height and an all-new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing applications, the 2016 F-650/F-750 line features a bold new look inside and out. Ford is the only medium-duty truck manufacturer that designs and builds its own diesel engine and transmission combination – ensuring the powertrain will work seamlessly with all chassis components and vehicle calibrations. Along with its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine option, Ford is also offering a gasoline-powered engine in the medium-duty truck segment. The 6.8-liter V10 with 320 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque will now be available for both F-650 and F-750 models with the heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission. The 6.8-liter can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas as cost-effective alternatives to gasoline. Here’s another quick look video:
Have a look at the first new commercial for the 2016 GMC Sierra featuring the 2016 GMC Sierra Denali, the 2016 GMC Sierra SLT, and the 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain with new LED “C-shaped” headlights, new bumpers, new front fascia and grilles, new LED fog lamps, and new “C-shaped” LED taillights. GMC’s bestselling truck has great momentum coming off its best June since 2006 and 12 consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains.
