If you have heavy-duty work you need to accomplish in the Gainesville area, you need a truck that can withstand the trailers and tractors you need to tow and the materials you need to haul. The Ford F-550 is the Super Duty truck that can make your life easier.

Where Does the Ford F-550 Get its Power?

The power an engine has is important on any truck, but if you are getting a Ford Chassis Cab, you need the most powerful engine options for the work you will be doing around Ashburn. The Ford F-550 gets its power from two engine options. These engines include:

  • Base: 7.3L V8 engine that puts out 350 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque
  • Available: 6.7L V8 diesel that puts out 330 horsepower and 825 pound-feet of torque

Both engines get paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The towing capacity on every Ford F-550 with the hitch-based towing setup can tow up to 18,500 pounds. But with gooseneck towing, the 7.3L V8 engine can tow up to 20,400 pounds, and the 6.7L V8 diesel engine can tow up to 31,600 pounds. Depending on the cab configuration and when properly equipped, the Ford F-550 has a payload capacity of up to 12,750 pounds.

What are the Cab Dimensions on the Ford F-550?

There are three different cab configurations on the Ford F-550 that you can choose from. Your choice of wheelbase and cab can affect the payload ratings.
