Boby Chemmanur is a Kerala-based businessman who is known for his unique marketing strategies. He recently brought a Ford F650 super truck from Dubai to Kerala via Carnet. It is the first time someone has imported this massive American truck to India. We have seen several images of this super truck on the internet. Here we have one such video where Boby Chemmanur’s Ford F650 is quickly compared with Toyota Hilux, which is one of the biggest pickups officially sold in India.
The video has been shared by Stefin Amzil on his YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger quickly compares the size of both of these trucks. Both the F650 and the Hilux are owned by Mr. Boby Chemmanur, and it looks like one of his managers is talking about the cars on the video. The video starts by talking about the engine specification of the Hilux. The video mentions that this is the top-end version of the Hilux and it is available with a diesel engine only. The pickup truck is powered by a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine that generates 201 Bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. It is available with manual and automatic transmission options. It looks like the one bought by Boby here is the automatic version.
The video then talks about the Ford F650 super truck. The Toyota Hilux looks too small in front of the F650. The video mentions that the pickup is powered by a 6.7-liter turbocharged V8 diesel engine that generates 368 Nm of torque, which is not the correct info. It looks like the manager got confused between the power and torque figures. That is probably the reason why he said the F650, despite being a massive truck, generates less torque than the Hilux. The massive 6.7-liter diesel engine on the truck generates 330 Ps and 1015 Nm of peak torque.
The video then shows how the F650 looks from the outside. There are external fuel tanks on the right-hand side of the truck. The tank is designed in such a manner that it also acts as a step to climb into the cabin. There is also a retractable step that comes out when you open the door. The vlogger gives a quick tour of the interior. He shows that there is space for 5 passengers in the cabin. He doesn’t go into the details and also fails to mention the features that the truck comes with.
Ford F-Series trucks are one of the most popular pickup trucks sold across the world. They are extremely popular in the US and have been the best-selling trucks in the country. The main focus of this video was to show the stark difference in the size of the Hilux and the F650. The exact dimensions of the F650 are not available as the rear bed on this pickup truck is not offered from the factory. Ford sells this pickup truck with just the cab and stripped chassis at the rear. It’s only after customization that the truck looks complete. The video here fails to mention details regarding the dimensions too.
