Ken Block released information on the upcoming Gymkhana TEN vehicle, the Hoonitruck. A 1977 Ford F-150 powered by a custom-tuned EcoBoost V6 built by Ford Racing Ford GT Le Mans program. 914hp at 7,400rpm and 702 ft-lbs at 6,450 rpm, powers all four wheels via a Sadev 6-speed all wheel-drive gearbox.
The truck was built out of Mr. Block’s love of trucks, so much he has daily driven a Ford Raptor since 2010. Also, a bit of a tribute to his late father who also had the identical truck back when Ken was 15, and learning to drive.
“This project has been in the works for about 2 years,” said Block. “I’m beyond pleased with how it turned out, it’s simply one of the most badass and unique vehicles I’ve seen in a long time and I think it compliments my Hoonicorn perfectly. It’s also crazy to be throwing something around that’s this size when doing Gymkhana-style driving. But, it looks absolutely wild on camera, and that was our goal from the start. I can’t wait for the fans to be able to see it in action, I think they’re gonna love it!”
The Hoonitruck will debut at SEMA in the Toyo Tires booth, and Gymkhana TEN will debut early on Amazon Prime Video December 7th, 2018. Global release of Gymkhana TEN will premiere on the Hoonigan YouTube channel on December 17th.
