Best can always get better. Since 1967, that has been at the core of Shelby American’s character. And as if you needed reminding, the iconic shop has rolled out a brand new iteration of Ford’s most vicious truck; introducing the Shelby Baja Raptor.
A beefed up version of the already impressive Raptor, this romp-ready truck features the stock EcoBoost twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 paired with a customized cold air flow intake and aluminum intercooler that boost performance to 525 horses and 610 pound-feet of torque. In addition to tinkering around under the hood, Shelby outfitted this desert demon with adjustable Fox 2 Stage Racing shocks and threw on impressive 18-inch alloy wheels with BFGoodrich KM2 tires. As far as the body work is concerned, this truck gets the works; LED light bars, custom skid plates, a dual intake hood, and automatic runners all adorn the souped-up Raptor. Shelby is offering to either upgrade existing Raptors, or sell them brand new.
