Ford Commercial Trucks Performance Options For Matteson, IL
What Performance Options Are Available For Ford Commercial Trucks At Sutton Ford Commercial?
The performance and power options available in the Ford medium duty commercial truck line-up are exceptional and far surpass those of any of the rivals in their class. Ford commercial vehicles are well-known for performance, payload, towing, hauling, horsepower, torque and of course all of the newest advanced fuel options.
The Ford medium duty commercial line consists of the Ford F-650 and the Ford F-750 which are in the Class 6 and 7 commercial truck range. This means that the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of both vehicles on average can handle between 25,999 pounds and 33,000 pounds. With this much weight capacity these commercial truck monsters need to be power and performance machines.
Both the Ford F-650 and the F-750 come with two engine options which are both paired with a six speed Ford engineered TorqShift automatic transmission. These medium duty high performance machines are engineered with technology specifically for hauling and towing with integrated braking mechanisms for superior precision while on the road, during working hours or recreation.
Ford has also re-engineered the concept of fueling these medium duty commercial trucks with all new advanced fuel options with the two engine types on the Ford F-650 and the Ford F-750.

What is Ford TorqShift?
The Ford TorqShift HD is the 6 speed automatic transmission uniquely designed and engineered by Ford to be paired with the 2 powerful and performance rated engines for the Ford F-650 and F-750 medium duty commercial trucks.
The TorqShift automatic transmission is so unique with features such as:
- 3 distinct plates
- A 2 stage torque converter
- Multiple pinion gears and extra gear-sets to help beef up and reinforce the two engines because of the tremendous demands
- Specifically engineered with SelectShift-
- SelectShift has 2 modes- Progressive mode and manual
- Tow and haul features
- Integrated braking features
- Live Drive Power Shift
- Live Drive Power is available with Stationary and Mobile modes
What is Live Drive PTO?
The Ford Live Drive Power Take-Off is basically allowing an accessory that is needed to do a job, or otherwise, to run off of the engines power by hooking up to a fitting on the crankshaft that is powered by the running engine of the tractor or Ford truck.
In this case the Ford TorqShift HD six speed transmission has a Live Drive PTO which has both a mobile and a stationary mode available. The diesel allows for a split-shaft moving Live Drive Power Take Off capability while both the gas and diesel allow for the stopped truck or tractor capability.
The split-shaft option does however generate much more direct power to the output shaft to the transmission than the stopped truck method but you can hook up more accessories at one time with the stopped truck or tractor method.
What are Advanced Fuel Options?
With the cost of fuel today, our footprint on the environment and the way we are polluting our world, Ford has come up with a few advanced fuel options for their medium duty truck and tractor line-up.
The V10 6.8L engine comes with the option to get the Gaseous Engine Prep Package which allows for the option to convert to compressed natural gas or auto-gas propane. With the prep packages you get special hardened intake engine valves and exhaust valves plus much needed valve seats. The Turbo Diesel V8 engine has the option of being B20 compatible.
Some serious reasons we need advanced fuel options are:
- Fleet ownership is expensive, especially fuel costs
- Foreign oil dependence
- Reducing the worlds carbon footprint
- The F-650 and F-750 area available in these fuel types:
When we get down to the power and performance of these monster medium duty trucks and tractors we see that the engines are what really make the biggest difference with these terrific machines.
These two engines are powerhouses and have unique qualities such as:
V10 Triton 6.8L gas engine
- 320 horsepower
- 460 lb. ft. of torque
V8 Turbo Diesel 6.7L Power Stroke
- 270 horsepower
275 lb. ft. of torque
Drive active engine exhaust- improves braking and brake wear and tear
- Tow and haul mode with integrated braking technology
- Multiple alternator options- 175 amp, 200 amp, 240 amp, and 357 amp
