Ford, Xbox, 343 Industries and Galpin Auto Sports are celebrating the release of Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One with a special version of the 2015 Ford F-150 that is so awesome, it could have been designed by the Master Chief himself.
The Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat is a one-of-a-kind vehicle inspired by Halo’s United Nations Space Command vehicle design.
Based on the all-new Ford F-150, the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever, F-150 Halo Sandcat is special enough to have been officially designated the M552 codename by the United Nations Space Command – closely matching F-150’s official Ford codename, P552.
The F-150 Halo Sandcat started as a 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew 4×4 with 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and FX4 off-road package. To turn the truck into the Sandcat, Galpin Auto Sports added an arsenal of modifications to give it a United Nations Space Command militaristic style that Halo fans will instantly recognize.
The F-150 Halo Sandcat starts with Addictive Desert Designs’ Baja XTR off-road conversion kit, which includes custom FOX Racing shocks, Deaver leaf springs, a Currie full floater rear axle, ADD fenders, side steps, a chase rack and 17-inch wheels with off-road tires to go along with a full custom Halo body wrap. Inside, there’s an Xbox One custom gaming system with displays mounted in the rear head restraints.
Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat will be on display entrance of the Los Angeles Convention Center during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this week. It will also be shown at several public events leading up to the launch of the latest edition of the popular Halo video game.
The Halo video game franchise is one of the most successful ever, having sold more than 60 million copies worldwide and has won numerous awards. Halo 5: Guardians goes on sale October 27 of this year.
