Dealership Builds The 650 HP F-150 Lighting That Ford Won't

| |

The Ford SVT Lighting went out of production nearly 13 years ago but the high-performance truck hasn't been forgotten by the folks at Pioneer Ford in Georgia.

In a Facebook post earlier this week, the dealership unveiled its F-150 Lightning Tribute which is based on the single cab model with a short bed. Despite its rather humble appearance, a closer inspection reveals the truck has a side exiting exhaust and 22-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. The dealership also installed a sport-tuned suspension and a handful SVT and Lighting badges.

While the previous Lighting had a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine with 380 hp (283 kW), the new model has a 5.0-liter V8 that has been equipped with a Roush supercharger. This enables the truck to produce 650 hp (484 kW) which is 200 hp (149 kW) more than the F-150 Raptor.

The Drive reports the truck is rear-wheel drive and comes with its full factory warranty. The model is also eligible for all the rebates and incentives as a normal F-150.

This particular truck stickered at $49,661 but it has already been sold. The dealership has plans for additional models and one will be based on the 2018 F-150 and feature a gray micro suede and leather interior.
