INDiANAPOLIS, March 3, 2015 – The wraps come off the mighty Ford F-750 TONKA truck – the nearly 10-foot-tall ultimate TONKA truck that is also Built Ford Tough – at the NTEA Work Truck show today.

Based on the all-new 2016 Ford F-650/F-750, the bold dump truck is painted signature TONKA yellow wîth a custom blackout nostril grille and fully functional dump body from Truck Tech Engineers. The F-750 TONKA is ready to move dirt at job sites, create new playgrounds and fuel the imaginations of kids of all ages.

'From Generation Z to the Greatest Generation, Ford and TONKA continue to set the standards for tough trucks,' said John Ruppert, general manager, Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing. 'People of all ages have been counting on Ford F-Series and TONKA trucks to get the job done – from construction site to sandbox – for more than 60 years.'

The mighty Ford F-750 TONKA truck – which will be on display at major work truck, commercial and vocational trade shows through the end of the year – is a collaboration between Ford and Funrise Toy Corporation, TONKA manufacturer of TONKA branded products under license from Hasbro®.

Vital Stats
Engine : 6.7 L., 8-cylinder
Power: 270 hp
Torque: 675 ft-lbs

'We are proud TONKA trucks are put to work every day around the world,' said Kathy Hawk, Funrise vice president of marketing. 'Creating this F-750 TONKA truck is a special way to celebrate that many of today's Ford truck customers first drove a TONKA truck.'


The Ford F-650/F-750 anchors the Ford commercial truck lineup – America's best-selling line of commercial trucks for 30 straight years – giving vocational customers an unmatched one-stop shop to meet their needs, from a Class 1 Ford Transit Connect cargo van to a Class 7 Ford F-750 tractor rig.

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, the 2016 F-650/F-750 features a bold look inside and out.

The Ford F-750 TONKA's exterior styling commands attention on the road and at the job site wîth Built Ford Tough looks that also help deliver upgraded functionality. The custom grille framed by hallmark Ford nostrils helps improve airflow for optimal cooling performance.

Sharp fenders, rugged headlamps and F-650/F-750 badges embossed in the 'Bold Leadership' font are new for all 2016 F-650/F-750 trucks. Available PowerScope® trailer tow mirrors feature large standard mirrors and spotter mirrors and §egmènt-exclusive power telescoping and folding design. The area behind the cab was redesigned to more easily accommodate custom work bodies, such as for tow trucks, dump trucks and ambulances.

The mighty Ford F-750 TONKA carries Ford's most capable gross vehicle weight rating of 33,000 pounds on a 158-inch wheelbase. Its Truck Tech Engineers dump body can haul up to 17,000 pounds to support the construction needs of almost any imagination.

The F-750 TONKA is powered by the Ford-built and proven 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 diesel paired wîth a commercial-grade six-speed TorqShift®HD automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The available power takeoff provision that runs the dump body can power other accessories in the field, including a crane or other vocational equipment.

The 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine features three engine power ratings, including best-in-class standard diesel horsepower and torque for medium-duty trucks, and no vocational limits on top ratings.

The three diesel power levels available for the 2016 Ford F-650/F-750 are:
◾Best-in-class standard 270 horsepower, 675 lb.-ft. torque
◾300 horsepower, 700 lb.-ft. torque
◾330 horsepower, 725 lb.-ft. torque

Multiple ratings provide customers the flexibility to scale engine power to work applications and operations.

The 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 comes wîth a five-year, 250,000-mile warranty.

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 wîth all chassis components and vehicle calibrations.

In addition to its Power Stroke diesel engine, Ford remains the only automaker in the §egmènt to offer a gasoline-powered engine for a medium-duty truck. The 6.8-liter V10 engine wîth 320 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque will now be available for both F-650 and F-750 models wîth the TorqShift HD six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The 6.8-liter V10 engine can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas as cost-effective alternatives to gasoline.

The 2016 Ford F-650/F-750 medium-duty truck lineup will be available this summer and built at Ohio Assembly Plant.
