Ford F-150 Chip Foose Edition Update
After Ford introduced the Chip Foose enhanced version of the F-150 at last year's New York Auto Show, news about the limited edition, supercharged half-ton went dark. Here's an update from Ford.
The prototype shown in 2007 was equipped with a Saleen supercharger bolted on the F-150's 5.4-liter V8 - rated at 450-hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. It was the same compressor shared with the Harley-Davidson edition F-150. But for the 2008 model year production truck, Ford has replaced the Saleen unit with a Roush sourced supercharger. Power ratings remain the same, at 450/500.
The first Foose F-150s should be arriving at dealers over the next few months. The truck's base price is $36,355. Adding Chip's stripes, wheels and supercharger will tack another $18,845 to the sticker, for a grand total of $55,200.
