Ford Motor Co. has all the time been an important a part of the SEMA Show. Mustangs, Focus hatches and even Transit Join vans have hit the present’s ground the previous few years with varied modifications. The Mustang is more likely to return to this 12 months’s occasion in its redesigned, 2015 form, and so is the F-150 pickup truck, which is as revolutionary because it will get. Ford’s new aluminum rig has already introduced its presence in Las Vegas, the place two completely different present vans will reveal the car’s tuning potential. Considered one of them is the Vaughn Gittin Jr. Avenue Truck.
2015 Ford F-150 Vaughn Gittin Jr. Street Truck
As you might have already guessed, the Road Truck was envisioned by Vaughn Gittin Jr. himself, a racing driver identified for drifting Ford Mustangs in probably the most spectacular methods. Whereas we already knew Gittin was a giant fan of Ford’s muscle automobile, it appears the Maryland-born drifter can also be obsessed with vehicles, and the F-150 particularly. The total particulars surrounding the Avenue Truck can be disclosed on the SEMA Present in November, however let’s have a more in-depth take a look at what we already learn about it.
What’s significantly necessary about this truck is that it has been constructed with direct enter from Gittin Jr. himself. This is the reason we’re under no circumstances shocked to see that it comes with loads of neon-inexperienced accents, particularly within the entrance grille and on the edges. Heck, it even has inexperienced fog lamps like Gittin’s drift Mustangs. The one factor lacking is a livery and an enormous Monster brand. The wheels are an necessary a part of the mission, as they’re linked to a customized suspension from Kibbetech with 12 inches of journey and an Air Elevate Efficiency air-journey system. Given its low stance, we guess Gittin can use it to place collectively some insane rubber-burning stunts.
Inside gear remains to be a thriller, however anticipate a few sports activities seats up entrance, extra neon-inexperienced particulars and a function-constructed handbrake lever. We wouldn’t be shocked to see a number of the cabin being stripped out as a weight-saving measure.
Fingers crossed this F-150 is greater than a trailer queen and Gittin releases at the very least one smokey video of it.
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.
The SEMA award, won by Ford F-Series trucks for four years running, recognizes the most popular vehicles the organization’s members feature in their displays at the weeklong event.
Custom versions of the all-new F-150 will be displayed on the SEMA floor. They include:
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.”
