'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®.

'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 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

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

2015 Ford F-750 TONKAThe 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 comes with 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 with all chassis components and vehicle calibrations.

In addition to its Power Stroke diesel engine, Ford remains the only automaker in the segment to offer a gasoline-powered engine for a medium-duty truck. The 6.8-liter V10 engine with 320 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque will now be available for both F-650 and F-750 models with 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.
