New Ford F-150 V8 Cat-Back Performance Exhaust Debuts

The Blue Oval offers a range of Sport, Touring, and Extreme exhaust systems for customers who want a little extra snarl out of their vehicles, a lineup . However, for those who want something with a bit more bite and are willing to shell out for an aftermarket exhaust, a new cat-back exhaust by Vance & Hines for the Ford F-150 V8 will soon be available.

The new Ford F-150 V8 cat-back exhaust system is part of the new Vance & Hines HoleShot Cat-Back Performance Exhaust Systems collection, which is geared toward popular American trucks. The new exhaust system will be manufactured at the company’s manufacturing facility located in Santa Fe Springs, California, and features high-grade 304 stainless steel with CNC mandrel bending.

The exhaust is designed to replace the stock exhaust on the 2021 through 2022 F-150 after the catalytic converter, providing a throatier exhaust note from its turbo-chambered muffler without creating an annoying droning sound inside the cabin. It will feature prominent dual four-inch outlets with a side exit mounted just behind the rear tire. It will be available with a choice of three finishes, including mirror-finish with Twin Slash tips, brushed finish Eliminated with black end caps, or blacked-out Eliminator. Both Eliminator options will feature riveted logo badging.

The new cat-back exhaust for the Ford F-150 V8 will be available for crew cab, V8 and short-box models. Pricing will range between $1,699.99 to $1,999.99. The systems are being shown off at SEMA 2022, and will become available for purchase in the first quarter of 2023 through Vance & Hines directly, or via authorized third-party parts suppliers.

“With four decades of success on the track and on the street, the Vance & Hines brand isn’t new to truck owners in the United States,” said Mike Kennedy, CEO and president of Vance & Hines. “We believe that owners will love the unique look and the great sound they’ll get with our new HoleShot Series. I’m confident our die-hard fans will proudly drive their truck knowing ‘This isn’t the only badass vehicle in my garage.'”

    I’d like a cat back exhaust for my truck, but these prices are absolutely insane!

    Great to see the relationship with Vance and Hines but a little strange since I thought that was a motorcycle exhaust. Why not Roush partnership, or is that only reserved for Raptor? I had a Borla aftermarket dual exhaust on my 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 5.3. It sounded excellent and I received so many compliments. It was $900 back then and I installed it myself.

      2nd on the Borla!
      Had the ATTAK on my 2008 mustang GT/CS, with some BBK long tubes and X pipe.
      So composed on idle and cruising, but louder than strait pipes when I wanted to have fun.
      Made all the other brands I tried (ALL OF THEM) pale in comparison. They were all just NOISE.

    Ford, GM and Dodge all have the same problem. They think loud=cool. Stupid buyers seem to believe loud=fast. Neither is true. Give me a sleeper with a lot of power any day.

      You are correct, everyone now wants to make as much noise as possible for no reason– cough, cough Harley riders.

    Two grand for ” sound?” — Not performance?

  5. Randy

    I will allow the install of this on my 2002 SuperCrew for increased sales purposes at no charge to Ford. It has 253,000 miles with original exhaust system. Advertising on the truck will be permitted free of charge. 😁
