For this year’s SEMA Show, Chip Foose teamed up with WD-40 Company and revealed a one-off custom off-road Ford F-150 truck. According to the official press release, this custom truck will be raffled off to one lucky winner. In terms of design, the WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-150 was the first vehicle built inside the new state-of-the-art SEMA Garage.

Moreover, through a partnership with the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts (AXC), underprivileged teens and young adults helped the team to install parts and equipment on the special project vehicle. Based on the 2013 Ford F-150 Lariat, the custom vehicle features a BASF Onyx HD paint by LGE-CTS Motorsports and comes with a Whipple supercharger, Gale Banks Straight-Shot performance system and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust system.

As a result, the 6.2-liter V8 engine delivers more than 600 hp. Furthermore, the vehicle received a converted front Raptor suspension with ICON Vehicle Dynamics 3.0 coilovers and upper uniball billet arms, but also an ICON rear triple bypass shocks with Atlas 3.0+ leaf springs. Baja Forged front and rear bumpers by LGE-CTS Motorsports were added, as well as a custom bed cage, Bulldog LED lighting and a WARN winch.

The custom Ford F-150 also comes with Boatec Raptor fiberglass hood, fenders and bedsides Power running boards, bedsteps and a tailgate extender, were installed and supplied by AMP Research. Inside, we find the plush Katzkin leather interior and top-of-the-line Clarion sound system installed by Audio Innovations. The exterior design is completed by the 17” x 9” MHT Fuel Maverick wheels in a matte Graphite finish wrapped in Falken Wild Peak A/T 37x12.5R17 tires.

Ford Motor Co. is celebrating the introduction of the 2013 Ford F-150 with future agricultural professionals and leaders. The 2013 Ford F-150 features a new front end and is injected with a number of advanced technologies like MyFord Touch with voice-activated driver controls. It could also be availed with high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps.

Doug Scott, Ford Truck group marketing manager and FFA sponsor board member, remarked that agricultural families have always been considered as important F-Series truck customers who consider a Ford pickup not just as their family transportation, but also as their economic livelihood. He added that just like FFA, Ford’s pickups are regarded as an agricultural tradition.

The latest iteration of the Ford F-150 – still considered as the most capable and most efficient light-duty pickup on the market – enters the scene with a new design and new technologies. Moreover, the 2013 iteration of the F-150 is now available in a new Limited luxury model. Aside from the available EcoBoost engine and 6.2-liter V8 mill, the new Ford F-150 also features Hill Descent Control and electronic-locking rear axle.
