2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Perhaps you have heard the big news that is lately spreading around 2016 Ford F-250. This super duty truck is rumored to come out with the aluminum platform. Even some unofficial sites mentioned that there are some spy images about its test mule on desert which has been confirmed by the official that they will remove the steel body architecture. It means that in 2016, the F-250, F-350 and F-450 will be built by using modern aluminum body panels. In F-150 it has aluminum chassis since 2015 model year.
At this moment, 2016 F-250 is expected to come out with some redesign concepts for both inside and outside. Ford is the popular American automaker that has been producing many muscle cars and we have no doubt that they are able to reduce the weight for this truck to increase its fuel consumption and performance. Besides the aluminum body panels, the company will support its suspension components with radiators and steering system elements made of magnesium. With this improvement, 2016 Ford F-250 is expected to remove great amount of pounds for its bodywork since it happened for 2015 F-150 that has 700 pounds lighter than the previous model. As a result, the car has enhanced fuel economy with improved towing capability.
2016 Ford F-250 Diesel
Based on the spy pictures, we think that the prototype is possible to go with turbo diesel engine. The very possible engine is 6.7 liter PowerStroke V8 engine that has been revised in 2015 F-Series Super Duty trucks. It was upgraded to produce about 440 horses and also 860 pound-feet of torque. It means that 2016 Ford F-250 has increased 40 horses and also 60 lb-ft of torque compared to the previous version. The possibility is quite high that this engine will be carried over since the diesel engine is quite powerful. For the base version, it will be offered with gasoline V8 engine 6.2 liter that currently able to produce about 385 horses and 405 lb-ft of torque. It seems that 2016 Ford F-250 has direct-injection support to improve its fuel economy. About the transmission, Ford is still developing the new 10-speed auto with GM. We expect that this transmission could be offered for this truck.
2016 Ford F-250 Release Date
2016 Ford F-250 should start its debut at the end of 2015 with the sales started in the beginning of 2016. Well, what we could do is waiting the official confirmation.
