When Will Ford Offer a Halo Truck for Sale?
To celebrate the launch of Halo 5: Guardians, Ford had Galpin Autosports prepare a F-150 suitable for the Master Chief himself. However, this isn’t the first time Ford put together a truck to celebrate the video game franchise that is Halo. But why aren’t they actually offering a truck to buy?
Who would buy a truck inspired by, or based off of, a video game? Lots of people. We know this because we can look at the Jeep Wrangler, for example.
In the past they’ve offered special editions based on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and they still hold a high residual value today. Just looking on Google, many 2012 versions of the Jeep are available for over $30,000.
Jeep is known for special editions, and perhaps the Modern Warfare 3 special edition Wrangler was extra special because Wranglers do appear in the Call of Duty games? But it seems that Ford could do a deal to get a Raptor or F-150 in a Halo game.
There’s a whole batch of gamers out there that are old enough to afford special edition vehicles, and they’re willing to purchase them.
Do you think Ford should take this newest F-150 creation and put it on sale to customers? Maybe Galpin could offer it exclusively through them? Let us know what you think over in the forums!
