The Extang F-150 may have had its debut at the November 2014 SEMA show, but its life as a show truck is far from over. Sponsored by the tonneau cover company Extang and built by the automotive class at the Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, MI, the F-150 boasts an “Ultimate Work Truck” theme with a host of aftermarket parts and accessories designed for the job site.

Most noticeable is the updated paint scheme and graphics. The paintwork, along with all the assembly, was completed by WCC students. The four-inch suspension lift, upgraded Goodyear Duratrac tires, and 20-inch chrome wheels. Of course, that orange ladder on the roof rack is an attention-getter, as well. The roof rack, headache rack, toolbox, front light bar, fender flairs, side steps, and Extang’s tonneau cover change the truck’s appearance. Things inside the F-150’s all-new cab were left pretty much stock. A set of all-weather floor mats and an upgraded subwoofer were added.

Fitting the theme, the bed features a BedRug to protect the paint, a sliding bed tray that rolls rearward for easy access to tools and supplies, a DeeZee toolbox, and a headache rack to protect the rear of the cab. Topping it all off is Extang’s next generation of sold fold tonneau cover.

The F-150’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost wasn’t left alone either. An AIRAID intake system and Ford Racing exhaust opens up the twin-turbocharged engine. Normally the engine produces 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, but those outputs are likely surpassed thanks to the extra airflow.

Expect to see the Extang F-150 at more events over the next several months.

All-new for 2015, the F-150 is totally remade. A new EcoBoost V-6 engine is added to the mix, along with the upgraded interior and the truck industry’s first all-aluminum body. A high-strength steel frame does the heavy lifting, giving the truck more towing and hauling capabilities than ever before. Added creature comforts like an optional panoramic glass roof, side mirror spotlights, a revised tailgate step, an informative TFT driver’s gauge cluster display bring even more functionality.

Under the hood, Ford offers four engine choices, ranging from the naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 base engine to the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. The new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 joins the mix making 325 horses and 375 pound-feet of torque. Lastly, Ford offers the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 for those who crave the traditional V-8 advantages.

Prices for the 2015 F-150 start just over $26,000 and can run past $52,000 without options.

Extang’s Ultimate Work themed F-150 was built by the Custom Cars and Concepts student class at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, MI. The truck was transformed by a very custom BASF supplied paint scheme designed by KEG Digital Garage. Modifications include Extang’s latest hard folding tonneau cover, Ford Accessory step tubes, Sportliner by BedRug, all-weather floor mats, and a subwoofer upgrade. Bushwacker supplied the truck’s wheel flares, driving lights and headache rack lighting by Rigid Industries, and light bar custom fabricated by WCC. Utility features include Bedslide, DeeZee headache rack and toolbox, and rooftop rack by Rhino Rack which supports the Michigan Ladder and PVC tube. To maximize performance, a Ford Racing exhaust system, BDS 4” lifted coil-spring suspension system, and tires by GoodYear with wheels by American Force were all added.
