Ford Commercial Vehicles vs the Competition

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty

No matter your needs, Ford Commercial vehicles can meet or exceed them. Each one can handle rigorous work, tough conditions, and any number of other demands.

You can get heavy duty trucks in a whole range of configurations, from cutaways to pickups, vans, and even passenger wagons. Even more critical is the question of Ford Commercial vs the competition. Thanks to clever and practical designs, you'll find that Ford Fleet Vehicles overall constitute a superior value.

Super Duty

The Ford Super Duty enjoys quite a few advantages versus other heavy-duty pickups. Among its claims to fame a best-in-class conventional towing of 21,000 pounds. To make that possible, Ford designed the truck with 95 percent high-strength steel fully boxed frame, plus beefier axles, suspension, and driveline. A factory-installed weight-carrying hitch built right into the frame helps, too.

Strong capabilities don't stop there. Ford Super Duty also boasts best-in-class 5th wheel/gooseneck towing capacity, too. With a 7,640-lb. payload rating, it exceeds the competition in that area as well.

Plenty of exclusive features make the Ford Super Duty more practical to use as a commercial vehicle. Among these advantages is a Trailer Reverse Guidance system, a 110v/400w AC inverter outlet which accommodates three-prong plugs, and a tire pressure monitoring system for the truck and a connected trailer.


Another example of superiority vs the competition is the Ford Transit. This commercial van provides amazing flexibility, especially when it comes to upfitting. Within 30 miles of the plant where the Ford Transit rolls off assembly lines are 12 upfitters. What this means for your business is that you get to choose an upfitter, knowing the vehicle will arrive quickly.

When your organization needs to use alternative fuels, the Ford Transit with the 3.7-liter V-6 can accommodate that easily. With the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package, the van will run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.

F-650 and F-750

When you choose the Ford F-650 or F-750 for your organization, you get some exclusive features, each of which leave the competition far behind.

No other Class 6 or 7 truck can be powered with gasoline or diesel, setting the Ford F-650 and F-750 apart. Truck and tractor models can use the mighty 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V-8. As an alternative for truck models, the 6.8-liter V-10 gasoline engine works hard, too. These give you options, allowing you to choose which fuel works best for your organization. No matter which you choose, a Ford-built TorqShift HD 6-speed automatic transmission delivers power smoothly, and maximizes efficiency.

Upfitting takes less effort with the Ford F-650 and F-750. A clean chassis design means you need to make few, if any modifications, for your needs. To achieve this feat, Ford positioned wiring harnesses, fuel tanks, and even diesel exhaust fluid reservoirs under the cab, rather than behind it on the frame like in competing trucks.
