    The biggest power pullers in the Ford Commercial truck lineup — the new-for-2016 F-650 and F-750 pickups — will drop the Cummins/Allison engine and transmission option in favor of the newly upgraded gen-two 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel and Ford six-speed TorqShift automatic transmission.

    The new medium-duty trucks debuted in Indianapolis at the National Truck Equipment Association's Work Truck Show, which runs today through Friday, where Ford is showing off the F-650's and F-750's new interior and exterior design. In fact, some are saying the new trucks look a touch like the old GMC TopKick and Chevrolet Kodiak medium-duty trucks, which were essentially chased out of the market by Ford product domination.

    The new F-650 and F-750 will come in three cab designs — regular, SuperCab and crew — and include several segment-exclusive features such as power telescoping and folding tow mirrors, as well as interior reconfigurability. Additionally, the new engine will offer a more aggressive Tow/Haul mode and a new dedicated switch for activating engine braking.

    Ford has not released the horsepower and torque numbers for the big trucks, but we'd guess its likely to offer the new engine in various power outputs to accommodate different industries.

    They didn't run the gm heavy duty out of the market. Gov did that. Ford didn't take the bailout otherwise these would be gone too.

    Yes that is correct, ford had nothing to do with gm leaving the mid size market. Rumor is gm will be back in 2015 but who knows.

    The gov't didn't either. GM lost money on every 4500 & larger truck they sold. They started trying to dump their Medium Duty line in 2007.

    I've been hearing they were going to build a new 45/5500 since 2010. Hasn't panned out yet, but I hope it does.

    They were trying to sell but never made a deal. Gov made them dump it as part of the bailout. I think gm just took back majority control last summer? Maybe that's why we haven't seen a re entry into the market yet.

    And it's going to be built in Ohio instead of Mexico so that's a plus.

    A few years back I saw an F650 locally with an 8' p/u bed on it. Yeah, it was RAD.
