While Ford’s Medium Duty trucks – the F-650 and F-750 – skipped the 2020 model year and went straight from 2019 to 2021, as we previously reported, these hard-working machines haven’t missed a beat in terms of sales. And while not a lot has changed with these trucks over the last few model years, Ford Authority has now learned that the 2022 Ford Medium Duty trucks will receive new LED taillights.
However, while the 2022 Ford Medium Duty trucks will be getting these new, modern LED taillights, it’s worth noting that they won’t be available right away. Rather, the new taillights won’t arrive until later on in the model year.
For the 2021 model year, the F-650 and F-750 gained Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8 gasoline engine, which in this guise is rated to produce 350 horsepower at 3,900 RPM and 468 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 RPM. That gasoline motor joined the previously-available Ford 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo-diesel, rated at 270 horsepower at 2,400 RPM and 700 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 RPM. Both engines mate to Ford’s TorqShift HD six-speed automatic transmission.
The F-650 and F-750 also gained an optional Driver Assist Technology Package in 2021, which includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Auto High Beam Control. An updated steering wheel and column features audio controls and telescoping wheel functionality, while an updated instrument cluster and instrument panel center stack are also present.
For the 2022 F-650 and F-750, Ford will offer an integrated air compressor in conjunction with the 7.3L V8 gasoline engine. The compressor can be used to power air brakes, air suspension, and other accessories such as air horns or air ride seats. For the 2019 and 2021 model years of the Medium Duty Ford trucks, air brakes were only available on diesel-powered trucks.
