The world’s longest and heaviest parade float comes out to 125 feet long and more than 137,000 pounds. The Lucy Pet Products 2017 Rose Parade float is powered by Ford’s legendary 6.8-liter V10 engine and heavyweight TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission found in the American car company’s F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks. It features eight dogs riding the waves produced by a one-of-a-kind mobile wave machine in a 5,000-gallon water tank.
“When we set out to break the longest and heaviest single-chassis parade float GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title, we knew we needed a bulletproof powertrain we could count on to reliably carry it down Colorado Boulevard for the Rose Parade,” says Joey Herrick, president and founder, Lucy Pet Products. “We’re confident that our surfing dogs, dancer JoJo Siwa, and all of our special guests are in for a smooth ride with the Built Ford Tough engine at the heart of our float.”
