There's a New Hoss in Town - PickupTrucks.com News

We canít share our first drive impressions of the new 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty until 12:01 am Monday March 8 but that wonít stop us from showing you pictures of the stout F-250 FX4 Hoss Edition project truck that provided off-road support.

Some of you may have seen an earlier edition of the Hoss Super Duty online or in magazines. Fordís engineers created it as a one-off hardcore rock crawler that was armed with a 362 horsepower and 457 pounds-feet of torque 6.8-liter V-10 gas engine, aggressive departure angle bumpers, 17-inch wheels with Pro Comp Xterrains mud terrain tires, a winch and a custom locking rear differential. But cool as it was, the Hoss never made it to production as a challenger to the heavy-duty Ram Power Wagon.

Enter the new Hoss Super Duty. This time around itís equipped with Fordís new in-house designed and built 390 hp and 735 pounds-feet 6.7-liter V-8 Power Stroke turbodiesel, 17-inch wheels with BF Goodrich mud terrain T/As and a new factory-supplied rear locking diff that comes standard on the FX4 model. If the bumpers look familiar, thatís because they were recycled from the previous Hoss Super Duty.

During the ride and drive, the Hoss was called for duty while we were waiting for our turn on the off-road course. A standard FX4 found itself hung up on some boulders and the Hoss truck pulled it free.

Could the Hoss Super Duty find its way to production? For now, there are no plans, according to Ford execs on the drive.

Ford has made all kinds of buzz with the F-150 SVT Raptor go-fast baja-style truck. A heavy-duty pickup with a solid-front axle and a rear locker would be a tremendous counterpart. If you like the Hoss rig, let Ford hear about it here. Or buy a new Super Duty and make one yourself!

looks like the only difference between it and an FX4 is some mud tires and some super Fugly bumpers

Yeah, everyone needs to vote for this to become an option. Right now it is just a concept. This would be a great match with the ram power wagon!

YES! Ford needs to have a line of Super Duties that have heavy duty/high clearance bumpers and a roll bar, skid plates, and a winch. Make it, but dont call it the Hoss, it sounds creepy. Maybe give it unique fenders and grill like the raptor has, and F O R D across the front, no blue oval. And dare I mention a 2 door short wheelbase wagon version (Bronco)

I would like to see them do this Hoss version and cross it with a Harley version with the different dash and color scheme. I wish they would keep doing the Harley version at least.

Yea that would be a great option! IMO "The Bigg Hoss" with the winch/Front locker and bumpers to compliment the pkg. You can contact me anytime FMC if you need detailed info...
