Ford currently lacks a high-performance truck offering, and Chip Foose's relationship with the Dearborn manufacturer has strengthened in recent months. The combination of these two elements are seemingly all that was necessary to create the Chip Foose F-150, a supercharged four-door pickup that carries a healthy dose of performance and style without impacting its ability to carry stuff.

Lowered only two inches to retain a reasonable payload and towing capacity, the low-slung appearance is enhanced by the use of rocker panel extensions. 22-inch, six-spoke one-piece wheels, stripes and a custom grille give the truck that unmistakable Foose appearance, and of course the interior gets a few customs touches of its own.

The real story, though, is the 450-hp supercharged Triton 5.4L that resides under the hood. Or perhaps it calls someplace else home, for we couldn't find a blower under the hood of the sample on display in New York. Regardless, it's supposed to impart the Foose F-150 with acceleration that surpasses even the departed second-gen Lightning, which means it'll indeed be a damn quick vehicle.

Check out our gallery for more live shots of the Foose F-150, as well as previously unseen official shots, and there's a boatload of New York Auto Show coverage to be found elsewhere on Autoblog.

      "Gotta wonder where that blower is..."

      I'm still wondering - that Saleen decal is sitting on an airbox, not a blower.

      Funny that the author couldn't find the supercharger on the Foose show truck, seeing as there's a big photograph in the gallery of the SALEEN blower (complete with the SALEEN label) that's installed. How coincidental that the power numbers of the Foose are identical to the Saleen S331, which is also based on the F150 5.4L and has been on the market for over 6 months. Gotta wonder where that blower is...

      I think that foose is getting into ford is great.
      Hopefully maybe now somebody will start having some aftermarket stuff for the 1970's ford f-150.like just try and find a ground effects kit or any relevant items or articles on a 1970's f-150 customized ford. i say this because i have around 15k into mine. 1978 shortbox off frame up resto, bears axles on a 9in, roller 302, centerlines,
      w/1976 front clip. all in high gloss black.
      i would like to see ground effects kits available for these years, and a few more bolt on goody's.

      From the front it looks just like the old Silverado SS. Very un-Foose-like to rip that off totally.

        If the front-end was a rip off of the chevy ss it would look like an angry bird. Yes it's official that is how you refer to that so called "style'' of chevy front-end. Chevy just keeps getting worse with their styling. They are competing with the new toyota for ugliest truck of all time. The pontiac Aztec looks better, and if you've ever seen one of these notorious P.O.S.'s then you catch my drift! I'd rather drive a little bit slower truck that looks good than a fast turd!

      I love the Foose designs, but I hope he's not spreading himself too thin. He's for the Foose Coupe, this F-150 and I've seen his name or picture associated to nearly everything automotive related I hear about. Then again, a lot of automotive stuff could use the Foose touch ;-)
