Sports cars and SUVs tend to provide the perfect platform for tuning firms. On the flip-side to that are pickup trucks, which don’t really get a vast number of opportunities to get spruced up unless they are headed to the SEMA Auto Show. Case in point is Ford’s of customized F-150 models that will be taking up showroom floor in Vegas this year. The first of which has been developed in cooperation with CGS Performance Products and goes by the name "Tarmac."
The F-150 Tarmac Concept pick-up offers unique and sleek styling with a custom aluminum hood, DuPont Jet Black paint and Boyd Red finish by Andy Meeh, a Paramount restyling grille, and Colorado Custom billet wheels. For the interior, the tuner is offering red leather from Pecca Leather, VizuaLogic headrest monitors, and Seat Belt Planet red seat belts.
All the minor restyling aside, the real star of this program is the powertrain and chassis improvements. Both have received a boost from a CGS Performance with a cat-back exhaust and cold-air intake, a Whipple twin-screw supercharger, a Bell Tech front coilover suspension, and six-piston Baer brakes with 15-inch rotors.
"Additionally, the F-Series trucks are the perfect canvas for customers to personalize. They offer a great wow factor and can easily be taken to the extreme in terms of performance."
