You Can Buy a 700 Horsepower F-150 With a Warranty for Under $45,000
Who doesn’t love a truck with a lot of horsepower? Unfortunately, a lot of horsepower typically comes with a pretty hefty price tag. Just take a look at the Ford Raptor R or the Ram TRX. That being said, there is a way to get a brand-new F-150 with over 700 horsepower for $45,000. Better still is the fact that it still comes with a warranty.
This sleeper F-150 is a Roush supercharged monster custom-made for you!
Town and Country Ford of Pell City in Alabama has just what you’re looking for if you want a potent truck without an equally potent price tag. Their “Sleeper F-150” comes in the form of a rear-wheel drive regular cab XL trim example with the iconic Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine.
Of course, the 5.0L V8 doesn’t make 700 horsepower on its own. However, Town and Country Ford will install a Roush supercharger at this price point and give the truck a custom tune. The resulting output is 705 horsepower pumping through Ford’s lovely 10-speed automatic transmission. Best of all, since it’s a professional dealership installation, it comes with a warranty.
According to the dealer’s website, the warranty is a standard 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain coverage example. It also still retains Ford’s standard bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well. However, if you buy one out of state, you’ll likely want to contact your local dealer to ensure they’d still honor this warranty. Otherwise, you’ll be off to Alabama for any necessary repairs.
It’s also worth remembering that the XL trim is the base trim, so you can’t go into it expecting a refined interior experience. Hey, they’ve got to keep it cheap somehow!
Things to keep in mind about this high-horsepower hero
The price tag of $44,990 doesn’t include taxes, fees, or shipping. After all of that, you’ll definitely be looking at more than $45,000. That’s just something that comes with purchasing any new vehicle, of course.
Another interesting thing to consider is the tires. The factory 245/70/R17 all-season tires aren’t exactly cut out for this level of performance. With traction control, you’re undoubtedly going to light those things up instantly. Even with traction control, it might be a bit of a handful. It would be wise to consider a tire (and maybe wheel) upgrade right from the jump.
Finally, though the truck is 50-state emissions legal from the factory, certain states might take issue with the addition of the supercharger. If this deal looks enticing to you, you might want to first dig into the logistics of buying and registering a pre-modified vehicle in your state of residence. Your mileage may vary.
Overall, though, this level of power for this price tag is truly hard to argue with. It’s a very similar situation to the Lebanon Ford supercharged Ford Mustangs that are available for a similar bargain-bin price.
