McQueen Racing F-150 Off-Road

In a notable venture into the realm of off-road performance, McQueen Racing, established by Chad McQueen, son of the legendary Steve McQueen, has united with Steeda to enhance a Ford F-150. This formidable collaboration results in a vehicle replete with robust tires, a comprehensive lift kit, and a significantly boosted powertrain.

This special edition of the McQueen Racing F-150 Off-Road introduces a formidable Whipple supercharger to the standard 5.0-liter V-8 engine, amplifying its power to an impressive 755 horsepower, up from the factory model’s 400 horsepower. The auditory experience is refined by a cat-back exhaust system, while the pre-existing 10-speed automatic transmission is retained to manage the vehicle’s dynamics.

Elevating its prowess, the vehicle features a 6-inch lift kit coupled with Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires to ensure its off-road performance lives up to expectations. To complement the vehicle’s increased velocity, it is equipped with enhanced braking capabilities courtesy of Brembo six-piston calipers.

The McQueen Racing F-150’s aesthetics are not left untouched. It boasts an array of modifications, including redesigned front and rear bumpers, extended fender flares, a ram air hood, and a roof basket, alongside additional lighting for improved visibility. The truck’s functionality is augmented with power retractable running boards, a protective tonneau cover, and a practical toolbox. For those desiring an extra touch of distinction, an optional graphics package is offered. The interior doesn’t escape enhancement, featuring bespoke leather upholstery.

The base price for this bespoke edition begins at $37,700, exclusive of the base vehicle’s cost. Owners can rest assured with the same 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty that accompanies other Steeda/McQueen Racing vehicles, including a special Mustang model derived from the newly reimagined 2024 Ford Mustang.

For enthusiasts in the market for a high-performance F-150, the field is competitive. Alternatives include the Hennessey Venom 775, which also elevates the F-150 to 775 horsepower, and Shelby American’s iteration that boasts up to 800 horsepower. Additionally, Ford Performance provides a 700-horsepower upgrade for 2021-2023 V-8 F-150s, and the factory-direct Raptor R which delivers both V-8 potency and off-road readiness.

not sure if it’s justifiable to spend so much on a f150 even with all these upgrades, the price seems a bit steep considering the add ons, don’t you think?
