While we were focused on all the exotic metal displayed in Geneva, back in America the truck industry was getting to work at the NTEA show in Indianapolis. That's where Ford unveiled its new F-650 and F-750 medium duty trucks, including this life-size, childhood-dream Tonka dump truck.
There is a showdown brewing in the medium-duty truck segment next year as Ford prepares to launch its all-new, in-house engineered 2016 F-650 and F-750. It finally marks the end of the Blue Diamond joint venture between Ford and Navistar and, making the two entities direct competitors instead of partners.
Medium-duty work trucks might not be the most exciting vehicles, but they perform necessary jobs everyday. Ford is in the process of a complete refresh of its entire commercial vehicle lineup over the next 18 months, and it is debuting the all-new versions of its F-650 and F-750 trucks at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, IN.
