Power under the hood and power in the cab makes the 2018 Ford F-550 a hard worker's dream truck.
Why Buy the 2018 Ford F-550?
When you need power that a standard pickup truck just can't deliver, you need a Ford Super Duty truck. The top of that impressive line is the Ford F-550. This Chassis Cab exclusive is beyond versatile. In addition to being a potent workhorse, it can take the form that best suits your needs or those of your business.
The F-550's versatility is because of its cutaway frame. You buy the truck frame and cab and then decide how to customize the rear. You can make it a flatbed, utility truck, tow truck, box truck, dump truck, and more. Whether you work construction, landscaping, utility, or in one of a dozen other businesses, the Ford F-550 can be custom built the right way for you.
How Is The F-550 Different from Other Ford F-series Trucks?
Just about everyone is familiar with the Ford F-150, the best-selling truck in America, or its beefier siblings: the F-250 and F-350. What's the difference between the Ford F-550 and its family members?
For one thing, the Ford F-550 is a behemoth. When fully loaded, it weighs in at 40,000 pounds. That's more than twice the weight of the heaviest Ford F-150--and the F-550 has power to match. Thanks to its 6.8L Triton V10 Gas engine, high-strength steel, and dual rear wheels, it can tow up to 31,900 pounds and haul 12,750.
Because of its size and power, the government classifies the F-550 as a commercial vehicle. Special licensing may then be required to drive it, since most casual truck drivers don't need all the power this Super Duty truck can deliver. But if you have (literal) tons to haul, the F-550 is your truck.
What Cab Configurations Does the F-550 Offer?
Like its smaller siblings, the F-550 comes in Regular, Super Cab, and Crew Cab. So whether you drive solo, with a work buddy, or with the whole crew, the F-550 has the space you need.
Don't forget your tools! Luckily, the F-550 offers smart storage everywhere, including a long compartment beneath the fold-up rear seats and a deep bin between the front seats. Charge your tools as you go with your own little power plant of a truck. The F-550 has multiple outlets, including 12V and 110V. The combined maximum output of these outlets is 400W in park and 300W while driving. To top it off, up to six auxiliary switches can be mounted up front for workaday convenience.
The 2018 Ford F-550 offers power under the hood and power in the cab. The F-550 holds everything you need, hauls everything else, and helps you get to the job site, get around, and get home at the end of the work day.
