From the factory, the most power a 2023 Ford F-150 can make is 700 horsepower and 645 pound-foot of torque. But there’s actually a way to get more power from this full-size truck, and that is the Shelby F-150. If you’re a fan of Ford, you’ve likely heard of Shelby. And to this day, this …

From the factory, the most power a 2023 Ford F-150 can make is 700 horsepower and 645 pound-foot of torque. But there’s actually a way to get more power from this full-size truck, and that is the Shelby F-150. If you’re a fan of Ford, you’ve likely heard of Shelby. And to this day, this company is modifying Ford vehicles. 

What is the Shelby F-150?

The Shelby F-150 is a high-performance version of this full-size truck from Ford. If the Ford Raptor R isn’t crazy enough for you, this performance truck has got to be. It is limited to 500 models per year and can generate up to 775 hp. Not the kind of power that you would expect from a truck.

Automotive legend Carroll Shelby founded Shelby. And since its inception, it’s been putting out some pretty wild stuff. This company might be best known for providing extra power and performance to the Ford Mustang. But folks there also understand that Americans love big trucks. 

Because of that, we’ve got this special Ford F-150. The F-150 Shelby was actually all-new for 2020, and I’ve got to say that it is absolutely nuts. It looks crazy, making the Ford F-150 a legitimate performance truck. I feel like you could get away with calling it a super truck. 

How much does the Shelby F-150 cost?

If you want a 770-hp Shelby F-150, you should expect to pay at least $110,625. Shelby does note that pricing, availability, and options can change without notice. So I’m not sure how easy actually buying one of these is.

For those that think 775 horses is too much for a full-size truck, you can opt for a 395-hp version. That will only set you back about $100k. Still, certainly not cheap when you consider a base 2023 F-150 has an MSRP closer to $30k. 

Of course, Shelby goes to great lengths to upgrade this pickup for that cost. You get a variety of customized Shelby interior pieces, and the exterior looks far more aggressive than a stock F-150. 

Shelby takes performance trucks to the next level

The ultimate version of this F-150 is the version that has the supercharger. The supercharger is specially designed and engineered by Shelby, and it gives the Ford F-150 an eye-watering 775 hp.

In order to help this engine breathe, you get an open-air performance intake, an oversized carbon fiber air intake tube, and an upgraded heat exchanger. The front fender vents are actually functional, but with this kind of power, they probably have to be. 

Production of the Ford F-150 Shelby is extremely limited. According to Road and Truck, the Shelby F-150 initially made 755 hp. But now, that number has been improved. If you’ve got the budget and ability to track down this performance truck, it might be the ultimate version of the F-150.
