The Nature of the Beast that is Ford F750
The Ford F750 has been the best selling truck in the United States of America for over 30 years. This truck has the only 4 door super cab in its class range. It has a powerful engine built for generating torque in order to counter its heavy loads. Speed is compromised in the process, but it’s a truck, and not a sports car, so it doesn’t matter much. The truck is compared to a monster in accordance to its capabilities and despite the shortcomings regarding speed and agility, the truck is the supreme in its class.
The Body of the Beast
The truck has a powerful chassis that houses a rear air suspension that is perfect for countering heavy loads at bumpy roads. It has a 10 gallon DEF tank and a 45 gallon fuel tank capacity. It comes with a 4 Channel Anti Lock braking system (ABS) which provides stability in driving. The front end has a chrome steel front bumper and a chrome grille. It has a Frame-mounted front-end tilting fiberglass hood and fender assembly with torsion-bar assist. This includes integral noise shields, inner splash shields and mud flaps too. The custom versions include automatic traction control and engine exhaust brakes.
Features and Specifications
The engine is a 6.7 L Cummins Turbo Diesel that pools a 360 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque and the Allison Transmission system which houses 2500 wide ratio 5-speed automatic transmission have patented torque converter technology. In the custom series, the engine contains power take off provisions that deliver that extra boost of power in torque to manage heavy loads. Different transmission settings are also available in the custom series specifically in 5- or 7-speed manual or 5- or 6-speed automatic. It also comes with body builders wiring to end of frame and 185-, 220-, or 320-amp alternator.
From all the specifications, it’s safe to assume that the monster that is the Ford F750 can deliver the performance that is required of it. The stock model that is manufactured is powerful enough to conduct heavy load lifting and the ability to transport over long distances - the incredible fuel capacity ensures it. The custom models have the provisions to increase fuel capacities to 145 gallons in order to meet requirements involving long distance travels like cross country. The body is sturdy and fit to bear heavy loads, yet light enough to deliver satisfactory handling capabilities.
Over the course of time
The Ford F750 has stood the test of time for over 30 years and, as mentioned before, is one of the most popular trucks in the United States of America. It has the potential to deliver incredible power owing to the impressive torque and performances delivered. The 4-door cab ensures enough space for a crew to accompany the goods. The sturdy framework is an image of impressive strength that is expected from all kinds of trucks and this one delivers it all. Everything from the looks to the roar of the engine is a sign of the beast within.
