Ford F150 LoboFord is introducing the 2005 Lobo Edition designed exclusively for the Latino market. Ford will use Latino music celebrity Pablo Montero in advertising for the truck. The F-150 Lobo is based off the STX series and adds a few distinctive elements like a billet grille, monochromatic design and unique 17-inch aluminum wheels. The Lobo Edition gets specific badges that include a wolf (lobo means "wolf" in Spanish) and is only available in 4x2 powered by the 4.6-liter V-8. The truck debuts in Texas during Cinco de Mayo.

      Is this the same Lobo model the U.S. DOD bought for the Mexican Government (12 vehicles) along with Huey and Schweizer 333 helicopters for border security in 2002?

      I just picked up my Lobo last week. In some respects, I can agree with wno0426@hotmail. I rented an XLT Supercrew for a month before, with the same 4.6, and the XLT did seem to have a bit more zip. It is still more responsive than the Silverado I had. I could have done without a 6-disc changer and speed/volume control, but I got very use to it very fast. The wheels aren't that special, but still a step up. Combined with painted bumpers and the distinctive grill, it does set the truck apart a bit from the gazillion other f150's out there without looking like you've tried to "pimp" it. Personally, I like the smooth upholstery as opposed to that "velour" or twiney feel. This is mainly because I have to wear suits or pressed slacks half the time and they wrinkle less. Also, I think the way the seats are tailored give it a roomier look than the Dodges and Chevys. But I might not want to pay 22K for it, either. I did pay 20.3K, though, and that was after having power windows/locks and LoJack installed.

      I bought a Lobo I suggest keep you money its not worth it. 22k for a xl with a fancy radio and floormats is to much. Ford with a "Better Idea" has conveniantly replaced the throttle cable with a servo. Thus seriously reducing throttle response. The 4.6l struggles with the 6300lb frame it needs a 5.3l at least. The seats cloth make you squim around likeins to burlap. The cheapest Gm or Chrystler cloth feels a whole lot better. The rims are a joke at least give us a chrome center cap. This truck is too plain too be called mexican. We are the inventors of salsa. To hell with the fancy radio give us at least power windows and locks. Most of all put back the dam throttle cable the dam computer doent have to run everything does it?

      I think if they're gonna do a King Ranch version (ranch in West Texas) that this is a cool nod to another significant part of that culture. Viva Ford!

      I've seen Lobo editions in Texas for years. In my experience that community buys the 4x2 version more than any other since, like suburban moms, they don't take them off road. All the older F-150 versions I've seen have been blue, the red looks nice. Oddly enough in Texas, and I believe other places, Lobo is also a common name for gay bookstores (which we have a lot of in Texas).

      Really exited about what? You really should try to quit those drugs.

      I think they may be missing the mark... cultures and communities that pride themselves on customizing vehicles to personalize and make a statement are probably not willing to pay extra money to get something that will look like everyone else's anyway. The v-8 in the 4x2 is probably the only worthwhile difference - the cost of this trim level will dictate the success, though...

      Interestingly, ALL Ford F-150s go by a different name in the Mexican market: Ford Lobo!
