Ford has begun the production of the F-650 and F-750 medium duty trucks at Avon Lake Ohio moving production from Mexico. The 2018 Ford F-650 truck is all new this year now the Ford’s commercial vehicle line up and there are no competitors in the market in this class because GM don’t build their top line and RAM doesn’t offer anything here either. The F-650 is now offered in a wide variety of cabs and configurations.
They offer Regular Car, Super Cab and Crew cab bodies on a straight frame doc height and an all new dedicated tractor version for heavy towing. Power side mirrors are redesigned and they come in any cab variety as well. The exterior of this super duty truck is redesigned and you get the choice to pick a fender design. It has also redesigned headlights that are chromed like the big grill, which is redesigned and larger. The only competitor that goes even close to this big truck is Toyota Tundra.
The steering wheel is quite different from the traditional super duty and it is made from a lot tougher material because this truck’s will be used a lot more. On the center stack, you can find just the necessary like the auxiliaries, basic stereo system, SYNC, rapid-heat and climate control. A lot of storage space is available in this super duty and it is very roomy as well. The back seats are fold-able and very comfortable to sit in.
