    About Ford F-450


    When it comes to American trucks, no series is more prominent than the Ford F-Series. Dating back to the late 1940s, the Ford F-Series has helped shape the landscape in which pickup trucks are designed, built, and marketed. This is also a family of trucks that is credited with providing millions and millions of drivers with a reliable means of industrious transportation in all walks of life. Over the course of the last few decades, the F-Series has grown in leaps and bounds, establishing an identity that speaks for itself. The Ford F-450 is an excellent example of this. Previously only available as a commercial fleet vehicle for towing companies, specialized contractors, and the like, the F-450 parts were redesigned in 2007 and presented to showrooms for the first time. Currently, it is part of Ford's vaunted Super Duty lineup along with the F-250 and F-350, respectively.

    The Ford F-450 is powered by a 6.4L turbodiesel V8 engine that provides about 350 horsepower directed through either a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. The model can also be had as both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, and all variants of the truck come with dual rear-wheels, which increases the amount of weight the truck-bed can accommodate with sufficient stability. Where it really stands out is in its towing capacity. The Ford F-450 is capable of towing up to 24,500 pounds with a fifth-wheel. This has made the F-450 a popular choice for drivers who own boats, recreational vehicles, or have other trailing needs.

    Thus far, the F-450's cab is based on trim. Trim levels are the base XL (regular cab), XLT (supercab), Lariat (crew cab), and a King Ranch Package Lariat. The Ford F-450 comes with such standard parts as 19.5” alloy wheels, commercial grade tires, an AM/FM stereo, vinyl upholstery, and a Tow Command system designed to control the trailer brakes with the brakes on the truck. For the XLT, cloth upholstery, power accessories, a CD stereo with MP3 capability, air conditioning, and cruise control are featured. As with most Ford trucks, the Lariat is considered the luxury trim. For the F-450 Lariat, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, fog lights, and power-seating are the featured parts.

    Power and utility is what the Ford F-450 is all about. Boasting hulk-like towing capacity and world-class strength, the F-450 is truly unique in the world of residential trucks. Of course, it also has the Ford name going for it, which in this day and age is always a plus. The F-450 stands out head and shoulders above most in its class not just because of its capability, but also because of its comfort and style. It's large, in charge, and fast making an impression on the everyday driver - the Ford F-450 knows how to make an entrance.

    New Ford F-450 Will Be Fueled By Propane Autogas
    New Ford F-450 Will Be Fueled By Propane Autogas

    Currently about 14 million vehicles across the globe run on propane. However, in the United States this figure is considerably smaller. ROUSH CleanTech decided to improve this situation. Recently the engineering company revealed a prototype of the Ford F-450 with the newest propane autogas engine technology. The company plans to start delivering its product in October, 2011.

    “Going green is not just for light-duty vehicles anymore,” said Joe Thompson, president of ROUSH CleanTech. “This truck has massive capacity, exceptional maneuverability, and rugged construction. It’s a workhorse in the field and economical on paper. Based on today's fuel prices, a propane autogas Ford F-450 or F-550 can save $30,000 over a 200,000 mile vehicle life, and can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere by 120,000 pounds or more.”

    The tank capacity and options have not been confirmed yet. The ford F-450 will share this system with its sibling, the F-550 model. ROUSH CleanTech plans to offer three configurations of tank for both trucks. Thus two under-bed and one in-bed tanks will be available. The newly unveiled fueled system will operate in combination with a five-speed automatic transmission. Being a mixture of butane and propane, autogas is well known as “green” fuel. Using the propane autogas fuel system makes it possible to decrease emissions, as well as to reduce fuel consumption.
