FORD, FOOSE CREATE ULTIMATE STREET TOUGH F-150 2008 Ford F-150 Foose Edition
* Chip Foose, star of TV's "Overhaulin'", designs first factory product – the 2008 Ford F-150 Foose Edition that interprets his hot-rod style through America's favorite pickup.
* The Hot Rod Hall of Fame's youngest inductee and Hollywood regular, on TV and as a custom vehicle builder for hit movies such as Gone in 60 Seconds.
* Foose's design visually lowers the truck in the boulevard-cruiser spirit while maintaining the Ford F-150's Built Ford Tough pedigree.
* The 2008 Ford F-150 Foose Edition is the most powerful half-ton truck on the market with a supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 delivering 450 hp and 500 lbs.-ft. of torque.
The Foose Edition F-150 is powered by a supercharged version of the 5.4L Triton V8 producing
450 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 500 ft-lbs. of torque at 4,000 rpm that sends power through a
four-speed automatic. That's not as much power as the Dodge Ram SRT-10, but that 500-hp truck
went out of production in 2006, leaving the mantle of World's Fastest Pickup for the F-150 Foose
Edition to pick up. While this is technically a concept, the production version it inspires will go on
sale this fall. Incredibly, Foose and Ford developed this truck in the time after last year's SEMA Show
in November when discussions between the two began. There's no word on pricing or how many
will be produced, but expect the F-150 Foose Edition to be expensive and exclusive.
