Forza Horizon players are already familiar with how DeBerti can truly transform both the looks and performance of a vehicle with unique and outlandish modifications. Their conversion of the Ford Super Duty F-250 might just be their biggest and most unforgettable build ever! It’s called the ‘Transformer’ for a reason with utility bedsides that can be unlocked to reveal additional stowage compartments. While the factory fitted 6.7-liter diesel engine remains under the hood, DeBerti made extensive modifications to achieve 850 brake horsepower and ensured the truck was all-terrain ready with a robust suspension system, high-visibility LED beacons and massive 37-inch tires. The load bed is also fully custom with two spare wheels at disposal and a pull-out utility box so you can always have the tools necessary to Explore the Horizon.
Earn 20 PTS during the Week 2 “Autumn” Season on the Explore the Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from June 1 – June 8.
The Ford F-Series of trucks have been America’s best-selling truck for the past 46 consecutive years, and America’s best-selling vehicle for 41 years. An F-Series was sold every 49 seconds in 2022! This seventh-generation “bullnose” 1986 F-150 was the model that helped secure this incredible sales feat and was a revolutionary model for Ford. With its independent Twin I-Beam 4×4 front suspension and modern, comfortable interior styling, the F-150 bridged the gap between car and truck better than ever before – a workhorse of a vehicle suitable for any task. This F-150 has the 5.0 (302) V8 under its hood producing a modest 185 horsepower. In stock form this F-150 will leave you plenty of time to see the sights of Mexico, but a quick Festival visit to explore the upgrades available will reveal that this truck can be hopped up into a serious overlanding rig.
Earn 20 PTS during the Week 3 “Winter” Season on the Explore the Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from June 8 – June 15.
Chevrolet’s C/K Series trucks are some of the most popular collector trucks. This 1972 K-10 Custom is from the last year of the second generation of C/K trucks, nicknamed “Action Line.” With features including an immediately recognizable egg-crate front grille, a big squared off hood and the highly desirable Fleetside short bed, this K-10 has a truckload of retro style! The “C/K” model code refers to the drivetrain of the truck, this 1972 K-10 is fitted with a 4×4 driveline (whereas a “C-10” would be rear-wheel drive). Under the hood is the faithful Chevrolet 350 Small block V8 engine, in this application pushing out 175 horsepower. While it may be tuned for rugged reliability and not outright performance, this V8 powered 4×4 truck has all the ingredients to make a great fun Horizon exploration vehicle.
Earn 20 PTS during the Week 4 “Spring” Season on the Explore the Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from June 15 – June 22.

Performance numbers include 1,000 horses of raw power with up to 11,500 lb-ft of wheel torque. There are zero tailpipe emissions and a brief 12-minute charge can get you towards an impressive 100 miles of range. Built to Explore the Horizon and traverse its most rugged terrain with ease, the HUMMER EV has unique four-wheel steering with the rear wheels capable of turning an impressive 10°, extreme off-road tires and adaptive air ride suspension options. Combined they ensure the HUMMER EV is ready to surpass all obstacles, from massive boulders to fording water. In Forza Horizon 5, it is set to “Terrain Mode” and players can fit an optional roof tent upgrade or enable its convertible functionality to remove the four modular sky panels and achieve that “infinity” setup. The truck can even reach 0-60mph in just 3 seconds – a remarkable feat for a vehicle of such sheer size and off-roading capabilities.
