Sinister and Striking.
Ford has been improving the F-150 truck quite a bit over the past few years, injecting all sorts of new technology, materials, electronics, and more in an effort to make it one of the most advanced and efficient vehicles on the market. They’ve been pretty successfully in doing so while also retaining its capability. Its design is also intimidating and this F-150 Lariat looks the part especially with its new Moto Metal MO970 wheels.
One of the new technological advancements that’s been utilized throughout Ford’s model range are its EcoBoost engines. These turbocharged motors help increase fuel efficiency, cut down on emissions, and reduce displacement. Here, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine uses two turbochargers to produce a healthy dose of 375 horsepower at 5,000 RPM and 470 lb-ft. of torque at a low 3,500 RPM, making it perfect for work. That’s sent through an electric 10-speed automatic gearbox to the rear Moto Metal wheels.
This Ford F-150 Lariat is dressed in a slick Black paint and comes with a few extra goodies. Up front sits an OEM fascia with ‘FORD’ lettering across the grille. The ‘F-150’ badges along each fender are highlighted in red to draw attention. There’s also newly tinted windows and side steps. The suspension was also lifted a few inches to make room for the new Moto Metal MO970 wheels.
Here, the new Moto Metal MO970 wheels were chosen for their tough eight-spoke design with chiseled edges that work well with the powerful look of the American truck. The new Moto Metal rims were installed in a 20 x 10.0 size with a -24 offset at the front and rear and equipped with 35 x 12.50 R20 Toyo tires for off-road grip. Each one of the Moto Metal MO970 wheels also wears a Grey Center with Gloss Black lips to go with the color scheme of the truck’s exterior.
This Ford F-150 Lariat might not be the most over-the-top custom vehicle, but it doesn’t need to be in order to make a statement with its subtle upgrades and Moto Metal MO970 wheels.
