The 2016 Shelby F-150, the performance truck of the year!

2016 Shelby F-150

Made for F-150 enthusiasts by F-150 enthusiasts, the 2016 Shelby F-150 is instantly recognizable. The classic Shelby appearance and over 45 high-performance enhancements resulted in this 700 horsepower brute! Blue Oval global product development vice president Raj Nair has said that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will churn out 450 horsepower, yet the 2016 Shelby F-150 can do better than that. No less than 700 horsepower is what the peeps over at Shelby American managed to squeeze out of the V8.

We’re talking about the 5-liter Ti-VCT V8, which produces 385 horsepower and 387 lb-ft (525 Nm) of torque in standard tune. Dial in a supercharger system, oversize cold air intake, billet aluminum high flow throttle body, aluminum heat exchange, and high flow injectors and the final result is 700 horsepower. The muscle car crowd will also appreciate the thundering roar of the 2016 Shelby F-150’s Borla dual exhaust system.

But what’s a lot of horsepower and torque if you can’t go off-road, right? That’s why engineers opted for 2.5-inch internal bypass reservoir shock absorbers with dual speed adjusters from Fox. These babies make a great team with the 18-inch Shelby wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain K02 tires, which are specifically designed for extreme off-road hooning.

Shelby American informs that only 500 examples of the 2016 Shelby F-150 will be produced. If you’re in the market for one, Shelby American announces that they’ll be made available through a select network of Ford Motor Company dealers. The pricing for all this madness? A whooping $98,995!!

The Shelby F150 also has a unique hood, a unique grille with what looks to be a Shelby Super Snake logo, wheel flares at all four corners, Raptor-like vents on the front fenders, a front underbody shield, a tonneau cover and the Shelby-specific graphics package. Check it out!
