One truck. Seven different interpretations.
Carmakers love to have some fun around this time of year, as they get to utilize the SEMA show to showcase how various aftermarket treatments can be used to transform their stock vehicles. No less than 7 Ford F-150s will be at the Las Vegas show this year, and the Blue Oval has provided some pictures and info ahead of the trucks’ unveiling. Each truck has a ton of mods done to them, and here's a brief overview of each to whet your appetite.
Arguably the pick of the bunch, the Forgiato F-150 comes with an Air Design USA full body kit, a slick red and black paint job, Fab Four premium bumpers, a set of 24-inch Forgiato Terra wheels, a rancho six-inch lift kit, custom lights and a Whipple supercharger.
The Leer Edition Outdoorsman F-150 is finished in gloss blue with matte black accents inside and out. The truck’s “live larger” theme sees power enhancing mods, an upgraded chassis, including a 3-inch stainless steel system with 4-inch tips, a 6-inch lift suspension, 22-inch Fuel Off-road wheels and tires, six blue LED lights, and a plush leather interior with a Rockford Fosgate 1,000-Watt sound system.
Focused on performance, Roush has utilized its R2300 supercharger system to boost output of the 5.0-liter V8 to 650 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a lowering suspension kit, 22-inch custom alloys, Roush graphics and new front fascia, and a Katzkin custom leather interior.
CGS Performance adds some glamor to the F-150’s grit with a set of 24-inch Savini alloys, custom paint, Raptor headlights, new hood scoop and tailgate applique, and custom leather interior. Performance mods extend to a cold air intake, car-back exhaust, and a lowering suspension.
Air Design USA has transformed the F-150 with a Gibson cat-back stainless-steel exhaust, Vortech intercooler upgrade, 20-inch Fuel Cleaver alloys, a host of new body parts, two-tone red and black leather seats and more. The main draw of these mods, says the firm, is that they can be done yourself with relative ease.
MRT made some mods to speed up the F-150, including refined boost mapping for the turbos, a SCT custom tune and a large capacity intercooler. The 3.5-liter V6 has also been paired to a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual transmission, while chassis upgrades include Wilwood performance brakes, 20-inch Forgiato wheels, and a custom rear suspension. Other upgrades include two-tone paint, a custom rear spoiler and lights, Sparco race seats and rear-seat delete to accommodate the custom roll cage.
Finally, Galpin Auto Sports’ creation uses an Addictive Dessert Designs (ADD) modified XTR body kit, custom lights and paint, 20-inch ADV.1 wheels housing Wilwood brakes, a custom suspension, a Full Race Motorsports Freak-O-Boost front-mount intercooler kit with 3-inch cold air intake, and a Katzkin custom leather interior with Diamond Audio custom sound system by GAS.
