Ford Motor Company – Ford Otosan  /  May 3, 2016

The culmination of a four year program involving over 750 truck engineers, Ford is proud to announce the 2016 Ford Trucks product range equipped with our new Euro-3, Euro-5 and Euro-6 emissions “Ecotorq” engines.

Impressive in design and now available with Euro-6 (near EPA2010) powertrains, Ford’s Cargo heavy truck range raises the bar with a long list of new features including in-cab Wi-Fi, Lane Departure Warning System and Active Emergency Braking System.  

Ford Trucks and You – "Sharing Each Load Together"

"These new trucks are also an important part of Ford Otosan's growth strategy in the coming years. Ford Trucks is once again becoming a global player with a sustainable perspective in the heavy commercial vehicle market”, says Ford Trucks Vice President Ahmet Kınay.

“Today, we offer competitive world class products and services, as well as a sales and service network second to none. Ford Trucks is strengthening its brand values to achieve success in the global market. With both financial and technical support from parent Ford, Ford-Otosan has ramped up its R&D and production capabilities. At Ford Otosan, we take the expectations of our global customers seriously, and have created our new brand promise to reflect that. Our new slogan, “Sharing Each Load Together”, signifies our commitment to all our customers around the world.

Strong, technically advanced and highly productive

Powered by our new Ecotorq engines up to 13 liters in displacement and 480 horsepower, the new generation of Ford Cargo heavy trucks delivers new levels of driving performance and efficiency. Utilizing the latest engine technologies, an increase in fuel efficiency by up to 8.5 percent may be achieved.

The multiple advantages of Ford heavy trucks

In addition to a new Ford rear air suspension system for vocational models, Cargo heavy trucks are now available with a combined auxiliary braking ability of 1,000 kW (1,341 horsepower) when ordered with the 600 kW (805 horsepower) hydraulic retarder option, and a vocational AMT transmission equipped with off-road, rocking and economy modes.

They easily could be sold in the US market, but currently Ford only plans to pursue the global market.

Is that because euro emissions are easier to meet than US emissions?

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

The European test cycle for Euro-6 is easier than EPA2010, but essentially, the U.S. and global (Euro) emissions standards have virtually merged at this point, making it possible to offer both emissions variants, as Paccar, Daimler and Volvo do.
