As part of the esteemed Ford Medium Duty models lineup, the 2025 Ford F-650 signifies a pivotal moment in redefining toughness in the commercial truck market. Let’s dive into what makes this upcoming model a powerhouse, designed to tackle the most challenging tasks with ease.

Ford Engine Dynamometer Testing: Power to Perform

The 2025 Ford F-650 comes with two incredible engine choices to suit every heavy-duty need, each showcasing advancements in engine power that set a new standard for performance and reliability. First up is the robust 7.3L V8 gas engine, delivering a whopping 335 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque. 

This engine is not only powerful but built to last with high-durability components like a variable-displacement oil pump and a forged steel crankshaft. It also features an overhead valve architecture and piston cooling jets, enhancing its capability to generate power low in the rev range and maintain optimal operating conditions under heavy loads. Additionally, this engine's design allows it to automatically adjust engine power for optimal performance under heavy loads.

For those who crave even more power, the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine will be your go-to option. As one of the most advanced diesel engines and turbo diesel engines in the market, it offers up to 330 horsepower and a massive 750 lb-ft of torque. This engine promises unmatched efficiency and endurance, thanks to its unique 'exhaust manifold inboard' design that contributes to its efficiency and power by ensuring faster air displacement. 

With torque power ratings that impress, including 700 lb.-ft., 725 lb.-ft., and 750 lb.-ft., this engine showcases superior performance that makes the F-650 a true beast on the road. Its significant market share in heavy trucks highlights the power and capabilities of these engines in relation to the vehicle’s performance and towing capacity.

Advanced Transmission Technology

The Ford F-650 doesn’t just stop at powerful engines. It features the sophisticated Ford TorqShift® HD 6-Speed Automatic transmission, which is tailor-made for heavy-duty applications. With features like Tow/Haul mode, this transmission system reduces gear hunting and decreases the need for brake pressure when driving on challenging terrains—perfect for those long hauls. 

Additionally, the integration of traction control with this transmission enhances vehicle stability and control by minimizing tire slip on slippery surfaces, ensuring a safer and more reliable driving experience. To further complement these technological advancements, the truck is equipped with automatic emergency braking as part of its advanced safety features, offering an additional layer of protection by automatically applying the brakes in critical situations to prevent collisions.

Safety and Driver Assistance

Ford takes safety seriously, which is evident in the F-650’s design. Equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360® technologies, the truck includes life-saving features such as Lane-Keeping Alert, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and Adaptive Cruise Control, enhanced in certain models equipped with air brakes. 

Following the introduction of Adaptive Cruise Control, the Forward Collision Warning system scans the road ahead for potential collisions, emitting an alert sound, displaying a warning message, pre-charging the brakes, and increasing sensitivity for full responsiveness, complementing the Automatic Emergency Braking system by preparing the vehicle for a potential stop. 

These systems work together to provide a safer driving experience, helping you stay in control and focused on the road. Additionally, the versatility of the Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies extends to the Live-Drive Power Take-Off feature, which supports both stationary and mobile modes, showcasing the advanced capability of the Ford TorqShift transmissions.

Designed for Versatility

The 2025 Ford F-650 is not only powerful and safe but also incredibly versatile. It is designed to meet diverse commercial needs with multiple cab configurations and upfit options. Whether it’s towing heavy loads or performing utility tasks, the F-650 adapts seamlessly to your specific work demands. 

Additionally, the relocation of components such as fuel tanks, battery boxes, and diesel exhaust fluid reservoirs under the cab enhances the ease of upfitting for vocational bodies, further emphasizing the truck's design for versatility.

What We’re Anticipating

While we’ve covered the confirmed features of the 2025 Ford F-650, there's always room for speculation and excitement about potential new features. We're hopeful for further enhancements in fuel efficiency, interior comfort, and maybe even some cutting-edge technological updates in the infotainment system.
