Ford is Now Offering an OEM Lowered 700 HP F-150 For Around $60k (With a Warranty!)
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of excitement among performance pickup truck enthusiasts as this niche in the automotive world comes back to life. The Ford F-150 Raptor and the powerful Ram TRX, with its impressive 702 horsepower, have proven that this genre is alive and well in the year 2023.
However, those who fondly remember classic performance pickup truck models such as the Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Syclone may wonder why high-performance iterations haven’t been applied to street-style trucks. While the Raptor and TRX are indeed street-worthy, their off-road suspension and large, knobby tires deviate from the super trucks we once adored.
Fortunately, today brings good news for those seeking more horsepower in a lower-to-the-ground truck with low-profile tires that are designed to slay the streets.
Ford has taken a step forward in this area by offering a 3L supercharger upgrade straight through their dealerships for any 2021 or newer F-150 equipped with a Coyote engine. This modification will boost the powertrain to an impressive 700 horsepower. The upgrade is available for just about any F-150 configuration, excluding models with an 8-foot bed.
In essence, the majority of V8 powered 2021+ Ford pickup trucks can now emulate the performance of a Raptor R, all without losing their warranty.
There is, however, one small catch. The supercharger must be installed either by a dealer or by an SAE-certified technician. Once these requirements are met, the combination comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty for peace of mind.
In addition to the supercharger, the package includes a few enticing add-ons such as graphics, a painted grill, and a rear lowering kit to level the truck. This is particularly useful for a more aggressive appearance, as pickup trucks generally come with a slight forward rake from the factory.
Below, our hosts at The Fast Lane Truck delve into the details of this combination and what Ford pickup truck owners can look forward to in the near future.
