A Step Above
This workhorse offers two engine options, starting with the standard 7.3L V8 gas engine. This powerful engine works hard to provide the Ford F-550 with 335 horsepower and 468 lb.-ft. of torque. The available engine, the 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel motor, is even stronger with 330 horsepower and an absurd 825 lb.-ft. of torque that helps the Ford F-550 in Columbia, MD, tow just about anything. The 6.7L diesel engine is just as advanced as it is powerful with a handy smart exhaust brake function. With the push of a button, this feature generates back pressure by restricting exhaust flow, helping to slow your vehicle. Not only does this make braking downhill a breeze while towing, but it also reduces brake fade and lining wear, saving companies money on maintenance.
It’s hard to imagine, but these powertrain options get even better. With a regular chassis cab configuration, the 7.3L engine offers a best-in-class maximum payload of 12,750 lbs. in the 2022 model and is capable of providing the Ford F-550 a towing capacity of 18,500 lbs. with a conventional hitch. For gooseneck towing, that number spikes to an impressive 20,400 lbs. While it offers the same conventional tow rating of 18,500 lbs., the 6.7L turbo diesel engine is even more impressive and gives the Ford F-550 a maximum gooseneck tow rating of 31,600 lbs. To keep your crew safe when navigating the road with a trailer, the Ford F-550 in Columbia, MD, comes standard with AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and trailer sway control. This feature uses gyroscopic sensors while regulating engine power and selective wheel braking to ensure drivers are in complete control of their commercial vehicle and trailer.
Comfort On The Job
As every commercial vehicle should, the Ford F-550 keeps workers productive on the move and on the job. The available 12-inch SYNC® touchscreen offers voice recognition, cloud-based navigation, information on demand, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and so much more. With the addition of Ford Telematics™ and Ford Data Services™, bosses and owners can keep track of their fleet and driving habits to ensure safety and activity on the job. For enhanced peace-of-mind while your crew is on the road, equip your Ford F-550 with available driver-assist features like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Braking, Lane-Keeping Alert, and more.
