Halo 5 Ford F-150 Sandcat Ready for Duty


In honor of the next-generation Xbox One "Halo 5: Guardians" video game (available Oct. 27), Galpin Auto Sports has created the Ford F-150 Sandcat, a special forces bad-guy killer designed for the United Nations Space Command Army.

The 2015 F-150 FX4 SuperCrew has all the appropriate off-road packaging along with a 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbo EcoBoost engine, but it also underwent a ton of special modifications to make it a supreme military recon vehicle, complete with 10 different alien outlines to represent how many of the "bad guys" the Space Command Army has decimated.

Among the truck's modifications was a suspension from Addictive Desert Designs that offers 20 inches of wheel travel in the rear (largely due to the custom shock rack in the bed and 9-inch custom Currie full-floating rear axle) and 13 inches of travel from the independent front suspension. High-performance external-reservoir Fox Racing shocks are at all four corners, along with 35X12.50R17 Nitto Mud Grapplers, custom front and rear bumpers (and matching side steps), and a unique bed-mounted water-can housing. Additionally, high-power projector lights are mounted on a swiveling light bar that will light up a darkened planet surface outside the solar system. Finally, the vehicle is completely wrapped with a protective body decal in a color inspired by the military's olive drab green.
