Ford Adds Chassis Cab Model to 2017 Super Duty Lineup
Ford has revealed that the all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty will be offered as a chassis cab model, and that additional production will be added at the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake to accommodate its addition.
Ohio Assembly and Kentucky Truck Plant will combine to produce chassis cab configurations for the Ford F-350, F-450, and F-550 Super Duty. The Super Duty chassis cab will be offered with the choice of a 6.2-liter gasoline V8, 6.8-liter V10, or 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8.
“Super Duty chassis cabs are the number one trusted choice of tradespeople and fleet customers, from utility companies to construction firms,” said Kevin Koswick, director, Ford North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations. “The all-new Super Duty will help these customers keep the lights on, deliver supplies and build a better world for their customers.”
Ohio Assembly has been in operation since 1974 and currently employs 1,400 people. The plant is responsible for production of the Ford F-650 and F-750, E-Series cutaway vans, and stripped chassis in addition to the new Super Duty chassis cab.
