Darth Vader Would Drive a 2017 F-450 Platinum DRW

By -


Today is a glorious day for Star Wars fans around the globe. The first official full-length trailer for Rouge One: A Star Wars Story dropped and — spoiler alert — there’s a cameo by Darth Vader at the end. Whenever we talk about Vader, we wonder what kind of car or truck he’d drive. Many people think it’d be a Raptor, but I disagree. If Lord Vader needed a truck, he’d have a blacked-out F-450 DRW Platinum.

If you haven’t see a new Super Duty in person yet, it’s quite menacing. It’s one of the biggest and baddest trucks on the road. With the Platinum’s LED headlights, you get some sinister-looking LED daytime running lights that look like they’d belong on an Imperial Star Destroyer.


Of course, Vader would want the 440 horsepower and 925 lb-ft, because if he gets bored of Force-choking his adversaries, he can simply run them over and crush them. Also, Vader would want best-in-class, because as a Dark Lord of the Sith, he deserves nothing less.

If anything, the Super Duty, especially in extra-large F-450 guise is basically a Death Star with license plates.

What do you think about the idea or the trailer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or over in the forums!
