Big jobs call for reliable vehicles, which is why the Blue Oval's F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks are rapidly growing in popularity and sales. Information about both is readily available at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington, so don't hesitate to stop by!
As the result of a recent redesign, the pair in the spotlight are currently basking in their greatest sales afterglow of a record-setting year in 2016 - a year that parallels sales from 1997, two decades prior. The two largest trucks in Ford's lineup are offered in straight-frame, kick-up frame Pro Loader and exclusive tractor models, with Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab body styles. The Blue Oval also stands out as the only manufacturer to make the choice of gasoline or diesel powertrain in the medium-duty conventional market an option.
“Our segment-exclusive gasoline engine is appealing to fleet managers who recognize not every duty cycle requires the torque of a diesel engine, and who prefer the cost and maintenance advantages of gasoline power,” Kevin Koester, Ford's medium-duty truck and Super Duty fleet marketing manager, said.

Recognition from one auto authority is commendable, but how many brands can say they've received two accolades simultaneously? The Blue Oval team can, as of late. After filtering out segment contenders from Nissan, Ram and General Motors, experts from PickupTrucks.com and Cars.com dubbed the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty King Ranch pickup the “Best Premium Three-quarter Ton Pickup of 2017."
The award is impressive, but not surprising. The re-engineered 2017 Super Duty trucks have been highlighted in the media recently, thanks to their combination of luxury and sheer power.
“Like a great all-around athlete, the new Ford F-250 King Ranch has the powertrain of a bulldozer, and the interior features and technology of a luxury hotel room,” Mark Williams, a pickup truck expert at Cars.com, said.
To seal its status, the F-250 endured various evaluations and tests to measure its payload and towing capacity, braking and acceleration, comfort, and more. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Todd Eckert, the F-250's prevalence demonstrates its lasting influence in the three-quarter ton segment.
