Ford's F-150 is getting the Foose treatment in time for theNew York auto show. Chip Foose, street rodder and star of the Discovery Channel's Rides, will transform the F-150 FX2 Sport into the F-150 Foose Edition concept, which Ford admits is "production intent."
The concept Foose Edition begins with the FX2 Sport and supercharges its 5.4-liter V-8 engine, pushing it to 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. The four-speed automatic gearbox from the F-150 remains the same.
Foose swaps out the F-150's suspension for Eibach coil springs and Sachs dampers in front, Eibach leafs in back. The wheels are 22-inchers, polished and forged and designed by Foose.
And for style, Foose clips on a Ford Racing exhaust, body flares and rocker moldings, and new badging and striping, along with a new grille treatment. Inside, the F-150's console gets a leather wrap and Foose-stitched headrests.
Ford says the Ford F-150 Foose Edition is "the most powerful and fastest half-ton truck on the market." It'll be built in Ford's Kansas City truck plant, taken off-line for customization, then sold at dealers starting early next year. Pricing hasn't been announced.
