The Ford F-650/750 has been named Work Truck magazine’s annual Medium-Duty Truck of the Year. The award was presented to John Ruppert, general manager - Commercial Vehicle Sales & Marketing at Ford Motor Company, by Work Truck's Editor Mike Antich at a ceremony during the NTEA Work Truck Show.

"Commercial customers trust Ford trucks more than any other brand," said John Ruppert, general manager, Ford Commercial Vehicle Sales & Marketing. "We’re proud this award recognizes our F-650/F-750 team’s commitment to delivering our toughest, best value, and most upfit friendly medium-duty trucks ever."

The Ford F-650/750 was chosen by the readers of Work Truck magazine from a field of 12 trucks.

"The F-650/F-750 is ideally suited for vocational fleets with a choice of three cabs, includingRegular Cab, SuperCab, and Crew Cab, along with two new tractor models, which have been well received in a variety of fleet segments, such as the construction, landscape, and beverage industries," said Antich. "The availability of diesel, gasoline, and gaseous prep packages creates versatility for any fleet application."
