2017 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Chassis Cab Added at Ohio Plant

Production Supplements Louisville Truck Output

Jan 26, 2016
Ford is gearing up for full production and sales of its new aluminum-bodied Super Duty models, following in the footsteps of the 1/2-ton F-150. The main production base for the non-medium-duty Super Duty models is Louisville Truck in Kentucky. However, the large-and-in-charge F-650 and F-750 are about to be joined by their aluminum-bodied F-350, F-450, and F-550 cab-chassis models at the Avon Lake, Ohio, plant. This makes the Avon Lake plant a mixed-materials plant, producing both the steel-bodied F-650 and F-750 models, as well as the aluminum-body models. Avon Lake also produces cutaway versions of the E-Series vans.
The chassis-cab models will offer buyers a choice of three powertrains, including a 6.2L gas V-8, 6.8L gas V-10, and 6.7L Power Stroke turbodiesel V-8. The new high-strength steel frame in the 2017 cab chassis models features an open-C channel design behind the cab to facilitate aftermarket body upfit and installation. The frame is fully boxed from the front bumper to the back of the cab. A new smart controller area network (CAN) interface allows upfitters to easily integrate auxiliary electrical accessories into the truck’s electrical system. The trucks include six auxiliary switches to control accessories.
