4

Ford has revealed its all-new F-650 and F-750 medium-duty pickup trucks.

Heading to dealerships this summer, the new F-650 and F-750 will be built at the American automaker’s Ohio Assembly Plant and will be available with a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine. One of the main focuses for Ford when developing its next-generation F-650 and F-750 was to lower noise levels so that owners will have a quieter, more comfortable experience inside and out. According to Ford, the Power Stroke V8 engine is 25 percent quieter inside the cabin at 60 mph than the previous model, with noise levels dropping from 74 dBs to 68 dBs. At idle, the trucks’ noise levels are improved by as much as 45 percent, dropping to 48 dBs from 63 dBs.

Three power levels will be available with the diesel V8 engine starting with a best-in-class standard 270 hp and 675 lb-ft of torque. The mid-range setup will have 300 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque while the range-topping V8 will feature 330 hp and 725 lb-ft of torque. The engine will also come with a five-year, 250,000-mile warranty. Those looking for a gasoline powerplant can opt for a 6.8-liter V10 engine with 320 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque mated to a TorqShift heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission.

The medium-duty pickups will be offered in Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab styles and in straight-frame, dock-height and an all-new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing applications.

“Our all-new F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks are purpose-built to give our hardworking vocational customers maximum capability,” said John Ruppert, general manager, Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing. “While the truck is able to work harder, we also made life inside the cab easier. Lowering in-cab and exterior noise levels improves driver comfort and minimizes disturbances while idling at work sites.”

    25% quieter than 74dB is not 68dB, but 55.5dB
    45% quieter than 63dB is not 48dB, but 34.65dB

    “smartacus”: db are logarithmic, not linear.
    Not so smart….

    Sorry Charlie, but a drop of 6dB is a 25% reduction in the Power Gain Factor. The Loudness Perception that the human ear detects is called Loudness Gain Factor

    Why is the horsepower so low I thought the new 6.7 had 450 hp. Who cares about the racket that’s what I like to hear.
