Ford debuts medium-duty trucks built without Cummins, Navistar

Ford Motor Co debuted new versions of two medium-duty commercial trucks on Tuesday at a trade show in Indianapolis, vehicles that – for the first time in years – will be built without the help of Navistar International Corp, Cummins Inc or Allison Transmission Holdings Inc.

The 2016 F-650 and F-750 trucks, which will go on sale in the spring of 2015, will be assembled at Ford’s plant in Avon Lake, Ohio and feature chassis, engine and transmissions all built in-house.

For years, the two vehicles were built on chassis made in Escobedo, Mexico under a joint venture with Navistar, using diesel engines supplied by Cummins and transmissions supplied by Allison.
