Pro drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr’s RTR Vehicles has just moved up from making high-performance Ford Mustangs. Now they’re building haulers that haul. With the RTR Ford F-150.
Don’t expect 700 supercharged horses from the RTR F-150, like you can from the company’s Stage 3 Mustang. For now, this is limited to some more sedate performance upgrades. Maybe better used towing your Mustang to and from the drift circuit and hauling the dozens of spare tires you’ll need.
The RTR F-150 starts with an RTR grille that adds LED accent lighting. The company says that the grille directs more air to the radiator for improved performance. Underneath is a “Tactical Skid Plate” which increases approach angle and improves off-road capability. Or at least offers more off-road protection.
Adding far more off-road capability are the Fox Performance Series 2.0 suspension bits. RTR says they offer comfortable on-road performance and more predictable handling off-road. They also help the 20-inch RTR wheels with 295-wide Nitto Ridge Grappler tires fit. Poking out the back is a Ford Performance cat-back exhaust.
Inside, it gets RTR floor liners and RTR badging. Including a plaque signed by Gittin Jr. You can build your RTR F-150 starting from any trim of Ford’s pickup, but if you pick a base trim they’ll replace the cloth seats with leather.
The package starts from $12,750, plus the cost of the truck you put it on.
