A Ford F-150 of the regular (read: “non-Raptor”) variety has been photographed sporting a pair of rear exhaust outlets, and while one might be inclined to immediately write it off as a privately-owned truck that’s had an aftermarket exhaust system fitted, the truck was reportedly spotted within the confines of a Ford facility in Michigan, meaning it could be a test truck.
Or, again, it could be absolutely nothing of any importance.
The Fast Lane Truck shared photos of the Ford F-150 Sunday, though Managing Editor Andre Smirnov seems to have had as hard a time coming up with answers as we’ve had. The truck’s body is clearly that of a pre-facelift model, although the vehicle could be a test-bed for one of the 2018 Ford F-150’s new or revised powerplants and a matching, factory dual-tip exhaust system. Currently, only the F-150 Raptor comes with a stock dual-exit exhaust, and unlike the square tips on this system, its tips are round.
What do you think? Could the regular 2018 Ford F-150 be set to gain a new, factory dual-exit exhaust system, perhaps on 5.0L Coyote-equipped models? Or did the photographer manage to capture some Ford employee’s rather uninteresting personal ride? Check out the photos at TFLTruck, and let us know in the comments section below.
