Ford F-Max Truck of the Year 2019
During the IAA 2018 in Hannover, Germany, the new Ford F-Max tractor was not only unveiled, it was also chosen to be the International Truck of the Year 2018. This is a remarkable choice of the jury for a truck that is not even on the market in most European countries. Still, the truck looks very promissing, and we would be happy to drive it on our own BIGtruck test track.
The new F-MAX was designed and tested by 500 Ford Otosan engineers over a 5-year period. Tests were carried out in 11 countries on 4 continents using 233 prototype units. This involved 15,500 hours of lab testing and 5 million kilometers of road testing.
“Ford Trucks has a very challenging promises. Saying “sharing the load” as a brand promise, we commit our self to understand customers’ needs and share all kind of load that they might have.” said Haydar Yenigün, CEO of Ford Otosan. “We developed our new tractor with Ford’s principles of comfort, power, efficiency and technology at its heart. To ensure that the design guarantees the most, in terms of efficiency and practicality, we examined every part and every detail over and over again.”
Comfort of home
The F-MAX offers comfort and luxury with its 2.5m-wide cab along with its modern design and driver-focused approach. The design of the cockpit-style dashboard ensures all functions are within easy reach. Even minor details are incorporated to enhance the pleasure of the driving experience. The sense of spaciousness in the cab is key.
The F-MAX provides all of this with its flat floor providing 2160mm of floor-to-ceiling height and 260 mm of seat adjustment. Furthermore, the F-MAX offers drivers very generous airplane-style patented storage, and an innovative and groundbreaking 90 degree foldable upper bed. It even has a braking feel that is similar to that of a car.
The new F-MAX offers a range of storage that is roomy and easily accessible. Airplane-style overbed storage, spacious overhead storage and exterior storage areas on both sides of the vehicle are all easy to use and easy to clean. The vehicle’s three-level door opening angle means that when it comes to getting into and out of the cab, the F-Max amongst the leaders. The fully sealed and water/dust-proof step cover make drivers feel that they are stepping into their own homes.
Power & Efficiency
The new F-MAX offers a high performance engine with 500PS, 2500Nm and 400 kW braking power. Superior aerodynamics, powertrain calibration and technical features also ensure outstanding performance in terms of fuel consumption with a 6% margin of improvement over previous models. Technical features include E-APU technology, eco-roll function, predictive cruise control (Max Cruise). Up to 7% reduced maintenance costs and long service intervals reduce the total cost of ownership. F-MAX’s Ecotorq engine offers maximum performance and minimum fuel consumption under any road conditions.
12-speed ZF automated transmission and different drive modes such as Eco-Mode and Power-Mode help optimize fuel consumption. The new F-MAX is also empowered by a variable-geometry turbocharger, a water pump and compressor with multiple working speeds, 400 kW engine brake power which achieves 1000 KW total braking power with the optional intarder.,etc
