Ever since Ford’s F-550 has been declared the “Commercial Truck Of The Year”, there has been a growing interest in this Super Duty chassis cab that was selected from among 11 worthy finalists by readers of Work Truck magazine. Considering factors like application effectiveness, quality, durability, servicing, maintenance and lifestyle costs, the Ford F-550 was voted by readers as the one that best fit their fleet requirements.
The greatest testament to the integrity of this vehicle is that the Ford F-550 was not chosen by automotive writers or third-party analysts, but by the very people who have grassroots knowledge of its performance and user-friendliness from their own personal experience.
“We know that hardworking men and women around the country rely on F-Series trucks to do their jobs every day,” Mark Buzzell (Director of Ford North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations) told Work Truck magazine after receiving such a prestigious commendation of Ford’s unique contribution to the commercial trucking sector in the United States. “That’s why it’s our job to keep making America’s best-selling trucks even better.”
Interestingly, the award was presented the same evening Ford unveiled its 2020 Super Duty chassis cab trucks, including the F-600, which is a medium duty truck with the right size, power and technology to tackle the toughest jobs.
The F-600 positions itself between the F-550 and the F-650. According to Ford, it was added to the line-up to give customers Class 6 capacity in a smaller, Class 5 package. So you’re still getting gross vehicle weight rating of 22,000 lbs but without the size of the F-650.
In other words, this truck will be able to fit into a lot of tight spaces, but still offer that heavy-duty capability that customers are looking for.
The new F-600 will hit the order books in the early months of 2020 and deliveries will start rolling out in mid-2020.
