All-New Ford F-650/F-750 Trucks Made In Ohio Now
All-new Ford F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks, with a new look inside and out, rolled off the line today for the first time in the United States at Ford's Ohio Assembly Plant after previously being built in Mexico. Along with its 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 diesel engine option, Ford remains the only automaker to offer a gasoline-powered engine in the medium-duty truck segment. The 2016 Ford F-650/F-750 trucks offer a 320 horsepower 6.8-liter V10 with the heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission and can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas as cost-effective alternatives to gasoline and a 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 diesel engine option. The move from Mexico to Ohio helps secure more than 1,000 hourly UAW jobs and a $168 million plant investment in the United States.
