2021 F-550 SD: Engine Performance

You'll need dependable power on your side when choosing a truck to assist in your work. That's why the F-550 offers two incredibly powerful engines. It comes standard with a 7.3L V8 gas engine which offers 350 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque.

If you want the strength of a diesel engine on your side, you'll love what you find with the available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine. These available engines come with the DEF Tank Level Gauge and can reach up to 330 horsepower and 825 lb-ft of torque.

Either of these engines will pair with the standard TorqShift® 10-speed automatic transmission. While that transmission directs engine power, the additional Selectable Drive Modes will give you five modes to choose from to match the needs of any situation.

Overall, the F-550 is able to tow up to 18,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Chassis Cab F-550: Available Trim Levels
