Whatsoever, this model is available only in chassis cab configuration. This commercial truck will look very robust, but some parts are very appealing. For instance, the front end looks very attractive. It comes with modern features such as LED headlights and the grille with more chrome accents.
Interior Offers Modern Features

Ford is working hard to improve the level of comfort on all of its vehicles. That includes the pickup trucks as well. Also, the Blue Oval will look to introduce more technologies from the inside.
For that reason, features like Ford Data Services and Ford Telematics are included. Optionally, F-600 comes with the LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to ten devices at once. Updated SYNC3 infotainment system comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen.
The F-600 model will borrow all of the driver-assistance features from the Transit and Transit Connect models. That includes systems such as hill start assist, automatic headlights, and traction control. On the other hand, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and stability control will be optional.
