Ford, Xbox, 343 Industries and Galpin Auto Sports are celebrating the release of Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One with a special version of the 2015 Ford F-150 that is so awesome, it could have been designed by the Master Chief himself.

The Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat is a one-of-a-kind vehicle inspired by Halo’s United Nations Space Command vehicle design. It will be on display at E3 2015.

Based on the all-new Ford F-150, the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever, F-150 Halo Sandcat is special enough to have been officially designated the M552 codename by the United Nations Space Command – closely matching F-150’s official Ford codename, P552.

The F-150 Halo Sandcat started as a 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew 4x4 with 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine and FX4 off-road package. To turn the truck into the Sandcat, Galpin Auto Sports added an arsenal of modifications to give it a United Nations Space Command militaristic style that Halo fans will instantly recognize. The F-150 Halo Sandcat starts with Addictive Desert Designs’ Baja XTR off-road conversion kit, which includes custom FOX Racing shocks, Deaver leaf springs, a Currie full floater rear axle, ADD fenders, side steps, a chase rack and 17-inch wheels with off-road tires to go along with a full custom Halo body wrap. Inside, there’s an Xbox One custom gaming system with displays mounted in the rear head restraints.

Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat will be on display in the South Hall entrance of the Los Angeles Convention Center. It will also be shown at several public events leading up to the launch of Halo 5: Guardians, Oct. 27.

Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat on Display at E3 2015


It might not be a Warthog, but the Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat is heavily inspired by the hit video game series Halo.

On display at E3 2015, the Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat is the result of a collaboration between the American automaker, Xbox, 343 Industries and Galpin Auto Sports to celebrate the upcoming launch of Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One console.

This special version of the 2015 Ford F-150 sports a matte army green paint job, but fans of the series will find it more familiar with Master Chief’s shade. Inspired by Halo’s United Nations Space Command vehicle design, the F-150 started as a Lariat SuperCrew FX4 model powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.

From there, the team at Galpin Auto Sports added numerous modifications including an Addictive Desert Designs’ Baja XTR off-road conversion kit, custom FOX Racing shocks, Deaver leaf springs, a Currie full floater rear axle, ADD fenders, side steps, a chase rack and 17-inch wheels with off-road tires. Along with the full Halo body wrap, there’s an Xbox One inside the pickup with displays mounted in the rear headrests.

If you’re attending E3 2015, look for the Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat to be on display in the South Hall entrance of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
