The second vehicle Ford showed off yesterday was the F-150 FX2 Sport Extreme truck. Again, the theme is that anybody with a big enough wallet could build this truck using accessories and parts from Ford's performance and accessories catalogue. The truck's new name is justified thanks to a Ford Racing screw-type supercharger, ceramic-coated headers and Ford Racing side exhausts that helps the 5.4-liter V8 churn out 450 horsepower. Aww, brings back memories of SVT Lightnings liquefying their rear rubber at will. The FX2 Sport Extreme is also dressed up with more Ford appearance accessories like a dark billet grille, headlamp treatments, a fiberglass tonneau cover and what are described as "unique" wheels that look an awful lot like GT500 rims. Inside are technological treats like headrest-mounted screens and a line-in on top of the dash. Again, check out the Read link for a full gallery of pics provided by the Jalopalites.

      well, I saw one message regarding the truck. the rest were digressions into whether a fullsize truck or a compact corolla were the better vehicle.

      I'm not sure anyone has the opinion that the Corolla is "cool." the matrix XRS with 180hp hit on cool but even the Corolla S cant catch cool with only 120hp. I am NOT knocking the Corolla as it, like all vehicles, serves a specific or small range of functions. A base F150 wont make the list of cool but some of the pepped up ones will.

      You freakin hipocrit, you just bashed a man for posting HIS opinion! Maybe your just mad cus' he is 100% RIGHT! da...
      "Fabulous truck!" Anybody that thinks that that heavy truck cant take a corner has never had the pleasure of pushing a lightning through an "S" curve at 130mhp! Straight lines are a thing of the past...unless you buy a truck from that foreign company, Daimler-Chrystler!
      This truck HAS a place in the market and should (does)scare the hell out of you beep beep lovers!

      #1--100% correct.

      You know one wonders, i mean Civics and Corollas are going like hotcakes, Chrysler is bringing Smart, Prius is Super Popular. Plus gas is expensive. When will Ford GET IT that people want smaller, more efficient, cooler cars.

      Oh, really? Because if you care to read back what I said, I specifically mentioned that I respected his OPINION. What I didn't appreciate was him basically telling everybody else (to paraphrase) "your car isn't cool, this one is, because I said so." Don't believe me?

      "There is nothing cool about any of the cars you listed."

      You can call me a hypocrite all you want, but I can think you're ignorant for doing it.

      I am very excited to see what this truck is all about but I am also disappointed I was not lucky enough to be in attendance of some old fashioned tire smokin' at the office no less... I thought this normally happened around the corner a few blocks down.
