When we talk about body design of the new 2018 Ford F-750 Hybrid, we can inform you that like the regular F-750, it will be available in three cab configurations – Regular Cab, Super Cab and Crew Cab. Beside this, it will offer three frame types – straight frame, dock height and tractor model for heavy towing. The new Hybrid will appear stable and robust with a new massive grille with four horizontal bars. You will also notice huge air intakes between the bars of this redesigned grille. In the front fascia, you will as well find a big massive bumper that has been extended in order to prevent the front-end collision damage.

Inside the new 2018 Ford F-750 Hybrid, you will find a simple and comfortable cabin. Since this vehicle is aimed at work and various terrains, you should not hope for any of the latest high-tech options and forms of entertainment. However, the cabin will be furnished with soft-touch materials while the seats and the steering-wheel will be adjustable. So, there will be plenty of room and comfort. The interior of this Hybrid will provide an air-conditioning system, AM/FM stereo, MP3 player, navigation and other standard features necessary for the everyday ride.
Most of the information we have got about the power train are based on rumors and due to comparison with a current model.
