New Shelby F-150: A Pricey Upgrade Over the Raptor R

08 Jul 2024
  • What are the exterior and interior enhancements in the Shelby F-150?

Ford enthusiasts, buckle up! The refreshed 2024 Ford F-150 now has a striking variant from Shelby that promises power and style but comes at a hefty premium. Starting at $130,000, the new Shelby F-150 doesn't include any engine modifications in its base price. If you want to unleash its true potential, be prepared to shell out $139,995—an astonishing $27,000 more than the F-150 Raptor R. For the steep price, you get a Ford Performance supercharger kit attached to a 5.0-liter V-8 engine. This modification boosts the engine's output to an impressive 785 horsepower, thanks to upgraded fuel injectors, a carbon intake, and a Borla exhaust system. Without the supercharger, the truck retains the stock 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which delivers a more modest 400 horsepower.

The Shelby F-150 isn’t just about raw power; it includes several mechanical upgrades to enhance its off-road capabilities. These include Fox 2.5 shocks with internal bypass technology, a three-inch lift, adjustable dual-speed controls, and performance rear traction bars. While Shelby describes the Fox suspension as "Raptor-style," the truck’s 22-inch wheels and 35-inch all-terrain tires give it a unique stance.

Exterior and Interior Enhancements

Exterior and Interior Enhancements

Shelby’s touch is evident in the truck's exterior design. The F-150 features a new lower bumper cover, a dual-intake hood with vents and extractors, and the iconic Shelby grille adorned with a snake badge. Power running boards with rock guards, fender vents, a body-colored tonneau cover, a carpeted BedRug bedliner, and the signature Shelby stripes complete the look.

Inside, the Shelby branding continues with leather seats and floormats, carbon fiber trim, and a serial number indicating the production number. Additional interior features include a serialized engine plaque, billet pedals, and dark tinted windows (subject to state regulations).

Limited Production and Availability

Limited Production and Availability

Shelby plans to produce only 800 units of this high-performance truck, making it a limited-edition collector’s item. The base model starts with a Lariat SuperCrew 4x4, priced at $77,000 according to Shelby's online configurator. The upgrade package, including the supercharger, adds $62,995, bringing the total to $139,995. Buyers can choose from several paint options, with Rapid Red costing an additional $495 and Star White Metallic priced at $995.

The new Shelby F-150 will be available starting later this summer, offering a blend of luxury, performance, and exclusivity that comes at a significant premium. Whether it's worth the extra $27,000 over a Raptor R is a question that potential buyers will have to consider, balancing the allure of Shelby's enhancements against the steep price tag.

The 2024 Shelby F-150 stands out as a powerful and stylish truck that commands a high price. With limited production and extensive modifications, it targets a niche market of enthusiasts willing to pay for exclusivity and performance. Whether for its unique aesthetics, enhanced capabilities, or simply the Shelby name, this truck is set to make waves in the automotive world.
