Ford F-Series Medium Duty trucks deliver the power and capability that your Chicago-area business needs to take operations to the next level. With one look at the 2021 Ford F-650 specs, you’ll see exactly what we mean! We’ve broken down all of the engine options and weight ratings for the five basic F-650 configurations below, so you’ll have all the information you need to start exploring upfitting and customization options.

Ford F-650 Engine Options

Gas-powered F-650 trucks receive a class-exclusive 7.3L V8 as standard, while diesel-powered models receive the celebrated 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 turbo-diesel. All diesel configurations also offer two even more powerful versions of the same engine!

Here’s what you should know about each option:

7.3-Liter V8 Gas

  • Standard – 350 hp and 468 lb-ft of torque

6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo-Diesel

  • Standard – 270 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque
  • Optional – 300 hp and 725 lb-ft of torque
  • Optional – 330 hp and 750 lb-ft of torque

All configurations are paired with a TorqShift® HD 6-Speed Automatic Double Overdrive transmission. Most F-650 models also receive a Hydraulic Brake System, the Bosch HydroMax® w/Traction Control. However, those who upgrade with the Diesel Tractor configuration will receive Air Brakes w/Traction Control and Meritor Q-Plus w/ ABS instead.
