A monstrous red Ford F-450 pickup truck, seen in the great city of Jinhua in Zhejiang Province. The vehicle is a brand new 2013 model with a grille so full of chrome it will even impress a Chinese. Ford does not officially export the F-Series to China, buyers have to go gray if they want one and prices are high, this giant-of-a tractor costs at least one million yuan or 160.000 USD in China.
The Ford F-450 is powered by a 6.7 L Powerstroke turbodiesel V8 mated to the six-speed TorqShift automatic transmission, sending power to all wheels. The engine produces 397hp and 1037nm, enough to wipe of medium sized city like Jinhua from the earth.
