Why wait for the new Raptor?
The Ford F-150 Raptor is a monstrous truck that can off-road with the best. Ford’s latest rendition of the Raptor promises to be even better, but it's still a while away from coming out. Until then, off-roading enthusiasts that are looking for a high-powered truck can turn towards this—the 2016 Shelby F-150. This beastly truck was on display at SEMA and was a collaboration between Shelby and Tuscany Motor Co. Team. The pickup truck has a host of upgrades over the stock truck, but the most important detail is the truck’s whopping 700 hp.
The Raptor is expected to make 450 hp, while the Shelby puts out 700 hp. The 5.0-liter V8 has been fitted with a supercharger, a large cold air intake, a Borla dual exhaust system, an aluminum heat exchanger, updated fuel injectors and a high-flow throttle body. To make the F-150 better at off-roading, the truck is fitted with BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires, 18-inch custom Shelby wheels, Fox shocks, BDS Suspension and a custom suspension system by Shelby. The price for all of this is just under $100K. Prices for the normally aspirated, 395-hp Shelby F-150 start at a more reasonable $85K. Only 500 examples of the truck will be built and it's the only vehicle that can give the Raptor a scare.
