The New 2012 Ford f-650 with Gase Engine now available at Gresham Ford

The new Ford 6.8L V10 Gas engine truck is now available at the Gresham Ford Commerical Fleet Department.  Oregon Ford customers can now obtain a proven, powerful gasoline engine in a medium duty truck.  Recognizing that many truck duty cycles do not require a diesel engine, Ford has designed a gas engine powertrain for medium duty applications up to 30,000 pounds GNWR.  Gresham Ford is proud to be your Oregon Ford Dealership of choice for Oregon and Washington residents.  Annette Wetzel-Ramirez, Commercial/Municipal Fleet Manager, said "The new Ford 6 speed, double-overdrive transmission provides northwest customers with both outstanding grade ability from a low end 3.97 first hear and fuel-conserving overdrive ratios in fifth and sixth hears for efficient operation at highway cruising speeds."  The new sail type mirrors are dual rectangular, 96 inch wide or 102 inches wide, providing superior visibility to drivers.

The fuel tank is located on the left side, outside the frame rail and below the driver door.  It features integral steps with metal grating and is positioned to result in a "clean" back of cab area for the installation of truck bodies and equipment.  A 62 gallon capacity tank is available as an option.  The Clean Cab-To-Axle is created by positioning of fuel tank, exhaust and battery are all designed to produce an exceptionally "clean" area from the back of the cab to the center of the rear axle.  Interference with the installation of the required truck bodies and equipment has been virtually eliminated. 

The Ford Commercial Truck market is a competitive one always showcasing new material and options for the small business owner.  Those commercial and fleet customers in Oregon and Washington can rely on the Gresham Ford Fleet department to keep them up to date on product improvements as well as updated on any applicable rebates, incentives or government financial assistance from Section 179 or from "green" vehicle investments.  Please forward your questions to Fleet Commercial Sales Manager Annette Wetzel-Ramirez who can be reached at 503.489.1605 or
