The Ford F-650/F-750 Super Duty are medium-duty commercial trucks produced by a joint venture of Ford Motor Company and Navistar International. They were introduced in 2000, replacing the previous-generation F-600, F-700, and F-800 trucks introduced in 1980. They are made mainly for use as utilitarian trucks for towing, heavy hauling, use in construction and are intended to appeal to businesses and municipalities. They are primarily Class 6/7 trucks, but the 2011 model year F-750 expanded into the Class 8 range with a GVWR of 37,000 pounds (17,000 kg) due to frame and chassis upgrades. Although an F-Series truck, the F-650/750 Super Duty is also an indirect replacement for lower-end versions of the L-Series, in terms of GVWR and capability.
The F-650 and F-750 are manufactured in Mexico in a joint venture with Navistar International called Blue Diamond Truck Company LLC. With Ford discontinuing the Econoline van in 2014, Ford has announced production of the F-650 will transfer from Mexico to their Avon Lake, Ohio assembly plant that formerly built the Econoline.
As of 2014, the medium-duty Super Duty is available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.
The medium-duty variants of the Ford Super Duty line were preceded by the previous-generation F-600, F-700, and F-800 medium duty trucks introduced in 1980; the only visible part carried over were the headlights and turn signal lenses. As part of the Super Duty line, the new medium-duty trucks shared their cabs with their namesake pickup trucks. However, to decrease development costs on a new truck line, Ford entered into a joint venture with Navistar International. Named Blue Diamond Truck Company LLC, the two companies would develop their own medium-duty trucks sharing a common chassis while using their own cabs and engines. Ford would introduce the F-650/750 Super Duty, while in 2002 International would bring to market the 4000-Series (later the DuraStar).
The medium-duty Super Duty trucks share all three cabs with the pickup/chassis cab line; regular, 2+2 door SuperCab, and 4-door crew cab models are available. While smaller Super Duty trucks have received periodic updates, the only external update to the medium-duty trucks was a new grille in 2004. In 2012, the interior received an update seen in smaller Super Duty trucks the year before.
The aftermarket has made the F-650/F-750 into premium trucks similar to the International CXT by offering many different conversions such as four wheel drive.
At its launch, the F-650 and F-750 were available with two diesel engines: the Caterpillar 3126 (replaced by the C7) and the ISB from Cummins. For the 2010 model year, Caterpillar exited the on-highway diesel engine market, leaving Cummins as the sole engine choice. Expanded to 6.7 liters for 2007, the I-6 diesel comes with 8 standard and optional horsepower ratings, and two vocational ratings.
In 2012, Ford introduced gasoline and turbocharged gas (CNG) engines for its duty trucks. The 6.8 L Triton V10 supercharged produces 312 horsepower (233 kW) and 457 foot-pounds force (620 N·m) of torque and is mated to the new 6R140 6-speed manual transmission.
