In this Ford F-550 review, the team at Fred Beans Ford Work Trucks is here to tell all Doylestown, West Chester, and Langhorne, Pennsylvania, drivers what this truck has in store. Will it be the newest addition to your fleet? Let’s find out.
Ford F-550 Performance
There’s no such thing as a chassis cab with minimal power. The Ford F-550 proves this with its engine lineup, each boasting impressive amounts of horsepower and torque.
Standard on the F-550 is the 7.3L V8 gas engine. This powertrain was engineered for strenuous jobs, allowing you to tow and haul every day. This is thanks to an impressive 350 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque.
However, if you need some more oomph, opt for the available updated 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel. This ups the ante with 825 lb-ft of torque to really show everyone who’s boss.
All these engines are also paired with a Ford TorqShift® 10-speed automatic transmission. This expertly engineered transmission not only optimizes drive ratios for elevated performance, but it also gives you five selectable driving modes. With these, nothing stands in your way:
- Deep Sand/Snow
Ford F-550 Towing & Payload
With such an impressive set of equipment under the hood, you know the Ford F-550 can tow and haul just like you need it to.
When properly equipped, this chassis cab offers a conventional tow rating of up to 18,500 pounds. This means you can hitch up just about anything from equipment for your next job to a range of other applications helpful for work.
The F-550 also offers a gooseneck/5th-wheel tow rating of up to 24,100 pounds. But it doesn’t end there. You’ll also be met with an available payload of 12,750 pounds! So, go ahead and trailer whatever you need to and load up cargo in the bed, because this robust chassis cab can handle it.
