Ford Launches F-600 Chassis Cab

Ford Balances Size and Towing Capacity

With Ford’s 2020 F-600 chassis cab, you’ll not only have the muscle to tow all the tools you need day-in and day out, but you’ll also have it in a truck that’s small enough to maneuver around any jobsite. The mid-sized Ford F-600 delivers the capacity of a Class 6 truck in a Class 5 Super Duty package.


Power

The Ford F-600 comes with 7.3L OHV PFI Gas V8 engine designed for commercial-like durability, performance, and power. This overhead valve, port fuel-injected, big-block “pushrod” V8 features variable-cam timing to reach peak power with optimal air-fuel ratios in the low rpm range. This provides the responsiveness and power that commercial applications require.

For commercial durability, the 7.3L engine also features a new cast-iron block. It has four-bolt and cross-bolted main bearings and a forged steel crankshaft.


The end result is one of the largest V8s in a conventional chassis cab. The motor cranks out 350 hp and delivers 468 ft-lbs of torque.

Upfitter Switches

The 2020 Ford F-600 Chassis Cab comes with six factory-installed auxiliary upfitter switches. Two 40-amp switches work with the ignition on or off, while four 25-amp switches provide power with the ignition on.

Ford has integrated the switches, with fuses and associated relays, into the overhead console/storage compartment.

Stability

Also included in the SRW Super Duty package is Ford’s AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) and trailer sway control.

AdvanceTrac and RSC use gyroscopic sensors to apply a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking to help maintain control of the F-600 and the trailer while towing.
