Ford F-22 Raptor Truck

Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor is one of the most formidable fighter jets on the planet. So it makes sense that the folks at Ford would draw inspiration for it when the time came to build a pickup truck for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s upcoming Gathering of Eagles charity auction. And let us be the first to tell you, this one-of-a-kind truck is something special.

Built from one of the brand’s F-150 Raptors, this pickup’s build was headed by Ford design manager Melvin Betancourt and the engineering minds at Ford’s Performance Team. Apart from the obvious design cues taken from the jet of the same name (take that killer custom grille, for instance), some of this truck’s upgrades include an upgraded EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 with Whipple intercoolers, tweaked and improved suspension and brake systems, and a specially modified interior. Best of all, the proceeds will go toward the EAA’s youth programs. You’ll have to be in attendance at the event or pre-qualify by phone or email to bid or get an idea of pricing, however.
