Performance Is a Priority
The Super Duty F-650 and F-750 offer the commercial truck buyer exceptional powertrain choices and configurations that let them build the truck they need, whatever job they have in mind.
Three outstanding diesel engines are available wîth a wide choice of transmissions. Both the Caterpillar 3126B and Cummins® 5.9L ISB are available wîth Allison AT545, 2000 Series or MD automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions on these two engines can be ordered wîth 5-, 6- or 7-speeds.

Different Frames for Different Jobs
Commercial truck buyers can choose from three different body frames available on Ford's Super Duty F-650 and F-750. The 26,000-lb. GVWR F-650 and 30,000-lb. GVWR F-750 have a standard 8.5-inch reinforced frame wîth 18-inch section modules. The frame has a 50,000 psi tensile strength, wîth a 900,000 inch-lb. resisting bending movement (RBM).

Rugged, But Comfortable
As tough as the F-650 and F-750 are, they also are comfortable _ an important consideration for truck drivers who spend so much time in their vehicles. The available National® Hi-Back Easy-Aire driver's seat incorporates an air-activated suspension system to help eliminate the jolts and bounces of the truck cab.
Available manual air conditioning provides high-efficiency cooling for comfort in warm weather. Solar-tinted glass helps protect upholstery and trim from ultraviolet light that can cause fading.
Wide front doors allow easy access behind the seats on Regular Cab models. SuperCab models feature four doors, a medium-duty exclusive. Chrome exterior grab handles mean easy access to the cab while interior assist handles are mounted on the passenger A-pillar for easier entry and exit. Power door locks let the driver easily lock and unlock both doors from the driver's seat, and the power windows have a one-touch-down feature. Stainless dual western-style mirrors have 102-inch arms to improve the rear view wîth wide loads.
