Topping the package’s long list of upgrades is a bump in output from the twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost engine, courtesy of Tickford’s in-house ECU tune. The recalibration sees power jump to 354kW and peak torque reach 780Nm – up from 280kW and 637Nm respectively.
A high-performance cat-back exhaust system, complete with 3-inch into 2 x 2.5-inch pipes (culminating in twin 4-inch outlets) rids the rig of spent gasses.
The package incorporates uprated Roush Fox 2.0 shocks and springs, lifting the F-150 two inches closer to the sky.
20 x 9-inch Tickford-badged wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A K02 (305/55 R20) rubber, and these are protected by low profile wheel flare guards; while Tickford decals, branded side steps and a Tickford-numbered build plate cap off the F-150’s sport-enhanced look.
The Tickford package is exclusive to – and installed by – Performax, so anyone who already owns an F-150 and are keen on the Tickford upgrade will need to contact Performax and not Tickford. Tickford won’t be offering installation at Tickford Enhancement Centres.
The Tickford F-150 package costs $24,500 (including GST).
