The Ford F-650 is a pickup truck so absurd that it makes all others seem small and understated.
Ford has built the F-650 since 2000, selling them in basic form with a bare cab and an exposed chassis bed. This is because most F-650s are used for commercial purposes and turned into everything from tow-trucks to garbage trucks and delivery vehicles. However, there are a handful of companies out there that turn F-650 models into consumer-oriented pickups.
Doug DeMuro recently had the opportunity to drive one. This particular F-650 comes from a company called Super Trucks and is powered by a 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8 pumping out 330 hp and 750 lb-ft (1017 Nm).

Due to the remarkable size of the F-650, it features electric steps that deploy the moment you open the doors. When you finally manage to get inside, you’ll be welcomed by a cabin that’s more focused on utility than it is luxury. With that being said, there are nice leather seats more akin to lounge chairs and a central seat in the front row. Elsewhere, much of the cabin is clad in rough plastic.
Driving the F-650 is as weird as you would imagine. The cabin is just as high as the cab of a large semi-truck and the vehicle is so massive that it hardly makes any sense to have for personal use. You’ll never get it into a garage, won’t be able to fit into normal parking spaces, and is just too big for normal streets.
However, if you want to be the king of the road, this is one surefire way to do it.
