Ford F-150 FP700 Black Package Supercharged Coyote 5.0L V8 muscle truck Performance Nationals Carlisle

If you want a supercharged V8 truck from Ford, there’s only one option: the six-figure F-150 Raptor R. Except, as of today, it isn’t.

At Carlisle Ford Nationals happening in Pennsylvania right now, Ford Performance pulled the sheet off the FP700 supercharged package for all Coyote V8-equipped F-150 trucks. Packing a 3.0L Whipple supercharger, output is cranked to a whopping 700 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, the FP700 F-150 package is CARB certified 50-state legal, and comes with a 3yr/36k mile FPP warranty when installed by a Ford Dealer or ASE-certified technician. The FP700 package will also come in two distinct styles: a Black Edition, and a Bronze Edition, each featuring identifiable design cues of their respective colors. Wheels, graphics, lettering, and all. The package also comes with a rear suspension lowering kit to give the Ford F-150 a more squatted, athletic stance.

As you might imagine, a warranty-backed 700 hp upgrade to a Ford F-150 isn’t exactly a low-budget build. Whether its the FP700 Ford F-150 Black Edition or FP700 F-150 Bronze Edition, the price remains the same: $12,350 USD. But with the base truck being of your choosing, you could have yourself a real bare-bones sleeper of a truck.

Say you got a Ford F-150 XL, with the 5.0L V8 option and nothing else. It doesn’t matter the bed length, or of its a 4×2 or 4×4. Say you kept it as basic as possible, you’d be looking at $37,925 out the door. Add the FP700 package, and you’re just cresting $50,000 for a new truck with a 700 horsepower supercharged V8. You simply cannot beat that power:dollar ratio.

As automakers and dealers look to keep things rich, look for more and more dealer-installed performance packages like this to be offered in the future. Ford Performance is just one example. We also see Dodge keeping the party going with its Direct Connection program, which now offers EPA-certified Stage Kit packages that will boost the output of the Challenger Hellcat Redeye to 885 horsepower. We’re sure Chevy fans are wondering when they’ll get in on the fun, too.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
