Now I will talk about some other options packages/special editions only available in limited markets.

Targeted for the Latino market in the United States, Ford offered a special edition Lobo F-150 to its Texas dealers in 2005. Based on a SuperCab STX with 6.5 foot cargo box and two-wheel-drive and only available in Bright Red Clearcoat, the Lobo carried a base price of $26,355 USD and carried a nice list of standard features including the 4.6-liter Triton V8 engine, Billet grille, 6-disc CD Changer and MP3 compatible stereo and of course, plenty of Lobo badges and decals. 1,250 of these trucks were produced for the 2005 model year only.

Ford official press release:

DALLAS, April 28, 2005 -- In what is believed to be the first attempt by an automaker to develop a vehicle specifically for Latinos in the United States, Ford Motor Company is introducing a special edition F-150 pickup aimed at a growing Latino market in Texas.

Called the "F-150 Lobo," the newest version of the country's best-selling vehicle is based on the STX SuperCab series and features several distinctive design elements, including a unique billet grille, a monochromatic Bright Red exterior, special 17-inch aluminum wheels, 6-disk CD player, Lobo badging on the rear tailgate and Lobo embroidered floor mats.

"The F-150 is the number-one truck sold in the Latino market, so it's only fitting that Ford develops this vehicle exclusively for this segment," said Doug Scott, marketing manager, Ford Truck Group.

Lobo, the Spanish word for wolf, is the name of a popular F-Series model in Mexico. Ford and its Texas dealers hope to find similar success with this truck.

"With the Ford F-150 Lobo edition we have a solid product and message for our Latino customers, and we are making history in the automotive business," said Jose Pozos, president, Wichita Falls (Texas) Ford Lincoln Mercury.

Ford will produce about 1,250 F-150 Lobo models, which will be part of a one-month Latino focused advertising campaign leading up to Cinco de Mayo on May 5, one of the most celebrated Mexican holidays.

Latinos represent almost one-third of the nearly 20.9 million people in Texas. Furthermore, Texas has four of the top-10 U.S. cities with the highest percentage of Latinos -- Houston (number four, with 39.4 percent), Dallas, San Antonio and El Paso. Since 1996, F-Series has been the best-selling truck in the overall U.S. Hispanic market.

For 2005, Ford also introduced a new Texas-edition F-150 based on the XLT trim. I can't find what exact equipment it added other than the Texas-edition badges on the fender and tailgate under the F-150 badge.
