FORD TOUGH 250,000 Mile Warranty on F-650 / F-750 Power Stroke V8
If you’re a fan of big trucks, the Geneva Motor Show is not the show you want to go to. Instead, you want to check out the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
Yesterday, Ford unveiled their new F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks, including a special TONKA edition.
Ford is touting the improved noise, vibration, and harshness levels of the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 available in these trucks.
At idle, the new Power Stroke is 45% quieter inside the cabin, and 35% quieter when standing in front of the grille.
Another major selling point of the 6.7L diesel is the 250,000 mile warranty from Ford on the engine. A typical truck purchased from Ford carries a power train warranty of 5 years or 60,000 miles.
Offering 250,000 miles gives a truck owner the extra peace of mind that no matter how difficult the work gets, the truck will get the job done.
If diesel isn’t your thing, you can get a 6.8L V10 gasoline engine that can also be converted to compressed natural gas or propane autogas.
Of course, the V10 doesn’t have the awesome warranty, but does crank the “Mericuh” up to 11.
It sounds like these new, big trucks, are going to be a winner for Ford. Also, if you are upset they aren’t going to make the TONKA edition and you want to make your own, this is the truck to buy.
The F-650 and F-750 are built at the Ohio Assembly Plant.
