Ανάμεσα στις Mustangs, τα GT86 και τα υπόλοιπα sports cars που θα παρουσιαστούν στη SEMA φέτος, η Ford ετοιμάζει κάτι ελαφρώς διαφορετικό για να τραβήξει την προσοχή μας.

Πρόκειται για ένα custom 2015 Ford F-150 που δημιουργήθηκε σε συνεργασία με τον Vaugn Gittin Jr και σχεδιάστηκε για “εντός και εκτός δρόμου δυνατότητες καθώς και drifting και άλματα”. Για την ανάρτηση χρησιμοποιήθηκαν εξαρτήματα της Kibbetech King και της Air Lift Performance, μεταξύ των οποίων και το kit που χαρίζει διαδρομή 30.5 εκατοστών, ενώ στο εσωτερικό, τοποθετήθηκαν 5 bucket της Recaro, για τον οδηγό και 4 θαρραλέους φίλους του. Περαιτέρω πληροφορίες δεν έχουμε αλλά θα μάθουμε όταν παρουσιαστεί το μοντέλο σε λίγες εβδομάδες.

Εκτός από αυτό, η Ford θα παρουσιάσει και ένα ακόμα F-150, αυτή τη φορά σε συνεργασία με τον freestyle motocross αναβάτη Brian Deegan. Το συγκεκριμένο F-150, θα κινείται από έναν 3.5 λίτρων Ecoboost κινητήρα που θα διαθέτει πληθώρα αναβαθμίσεων. Περισσότερες πληροφορίες, στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 17, 2014 – From off-road prowess to street performance, custom versions of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 – the smartest, toughest, most capable F-150 ever – will vie this November for the “Hottest Truck” award at the Specialty Equipment Market Association tradeshow in Las Vegas.

Deegan 38 The Deegan 38 project built a personal connection between Ford Racing’s Brian Deegan and the all-new F-150 with the 3.5-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost® engine. Industry leaders including Addictive Desert Designs, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels, FOX Racing Shox, KC Hilites, Mastercraft Safety, Rockford Fosgate, Full-Race Motorsports, Leading Edge Tuning, ProEFI and SCT Performance joined forces to provide extreme motorsport enthusiasts with the ultimate example of the world’s most capable truck.

“This F-150 should inspire the vast off-road, extreme-lifestyle-loving fan base to push the possibilities of the kick-ass new 2015 F-150 and the awesome 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine,” said Deegan.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. street truck Boasting 12 inches of King shock-controlled travel via a Kibbetech custom suspension, this 2015 F-150 purpose-built by Formula DRIFT superstar Vaughn Gittin Jr. is designed to take full advantage of the weight savings and serious torque offered by the all-new F-150. With its unique, aggressive looks and Air Lift Performance air ride, this street truck aims to turn heads and elicit huge smiles, while providing massive amounts of fun and adrenaline for up to five passengers who strap into its Recaro seats.

“I love trucks, and to build one that has daily on- and off-road capabilities, as well as drifting and jumping capabilities is something I have always wanted to do,” said Gittin. “I am really pumped to get crazy in this F-150 at SEMA this year.”
