This medium-duty truck fuses its standard 7.3L gasoline V8 engine with a TorqShift 10-speed automatic transmission to optimize performance for heavy-duty work.

Engineered for durability and calibrated to handle punishing jobs, the 2021 F-550’s TorqShift 10-speed automatic transmission is the choice of commercial fleets. With a tall 4.615 first-gear ratio producing outstanding starting torque, this transmission also features a wider overall ratio spread, which allows for a lower numerical top gear ratio to enhance the truck’s overall efficiency. Quick shifts support the engine to achieve more immediate performance, as well, making merging or passing on the highway a breeze despite the F-550’s weight.

More importantly, the 2021 F-550's TorqShift 10-speed automatic transmission contributes to a higher quality ride. Shorter steps between gears provide a seamless shifting experience. Five selectable drive modes also allow drivers to optimize how the F-550 performs with tow/haul, deep snow/sand, slipper, normal and eco modes.

Experience the 2021 F-550’s transmission for yourself. Contact Skaha Ford to arrange a test drive or inquire about our medium-duty truck maintenance and repair services in BC.

When you are in the middle of a job, your crews can access the cab without having to interrupt your work to request a key fob.

The XLT Value Package also adds an auto-lock and unlock feature to the 2021 F-550, which automatically latches the doors when the ignition is on, all doors are closed, the vehicle is in motion and travelling more than 20 km/h. When the truck comes to a stop and the ignition is off (or in the accessory position), the doors of the 2021 F-550 XLT automatically unlock, allowing you and your crew to hop out and get right to work.

Other features in the XLT Value Package include a power eight-way driver’s seat with lumbar adjustments. There is a rear-seat under-storage compartment, as well, to keep pricing sheets, invoices and marketing materials close at hand.
