Is there a 2023 Ford Shelby truck?

Yes, there is a 2023 Ford Shelby truck, and it pays homage to the legendary Carrol Shelby. He was a racing and off-roading enthusiast and an automotive entrepreneur and designer. Shelby put the AC Cobra and the Ford Mustang on the map. 

This year, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake and Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition get our motors running the most. But the 2023 Ford F-150 Shelby is the toughest and most productive F-150 model ever built. 

The Ford Shelby starts with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine with 395 hp, but the optional supercharge cranks things up to 775 hp. The F-150 Shelby is ready for outdoor adventures with FOX shocks that feature internal bypass technology and adjustable dual-speed controls. 

Plus, the Shelby pickup truck can be tuned to prove a better street performance, off-roading, or rock crawling. The system automatically adjusts to changing terrain, and the truck has a three-inch lift. 

For optimal performance, the engine is paired with a performance air intake with a high-flow filter, oversized carbon fiber air intake tube, high-flow fuel injectors, and a billet throttle body. 

The Shelby Super Snake has the 775 hp supercharged setup with a suspension that can be lowered for street racing. It rides on 22-inch Shelby chrome alloy wheels and features a four-piece ground effects kit. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. 

How much does the Ford Shelby truck cost? 

The Shelby truck price starts at a whopping $127,350, and the 775 hp model takes the price up to $135,850. The Ford F-150 Raptor R has 700 hp and starts at $109,405. So the extra F-150 Shelby equipment isn’t cheap. 

You can order the Shelby truck through the Shelby sales team. If you want to get behind the wheel of one of these special editions, then make haste. They’re made in limited qualities, and the F-150 Shelby only has 250 models available.  

It’s based on the Ford F-150 Lariat model but comes with a few extra luxury and convenience features. There are attractive two-tone leather seats with vibrant red accent stitching, carbon fiber trim pieces, deep-tinted windows, and billet racing pedals. 

Shelby is embroidered on the center console lid, headrests, and floor mats. Plus, you get a CSM numbered dash plaque and engine plate. 

How much can the Shelby F-150 tow?

The official towing capacity for the Ford F-150 Shebly is a little unclear, but it’s based on the regular F-150, which can tow up to 14,000 lbs and carry a payload of up to 2,238 lbs. The Ford Raptor R can tow up to 8,700 lbs and can carry a payload of up to 1,400 lbs. 

We recommend checking with the Shelby sales team to determine the official towing capacity. Also, this truck has a tonneau cover and bed rug liner for getting work done. The side steps and rock guards probably help too. 

The Shelby truck press release mentions the Pro Power Onboard generator, but none of the text suggests it’s available with Shelby models. However, it’d be an excellent perk for using this super truck at camp or work sites. 

Stay tuned for updates about the latest Ford super trucks. The Ford Shelby truck is the most capable F-150 ever, but it comes at a shocking price. But with 775 hp under the hood, it could be worth every penny.
