LAS VEGAS – At SEMA Las Vegas, Shelby American unveiled its latest enhancement to the Ford family: all-new Shelby F-150 truck.

For Ford F-150 truck enthusiasts, the Shelby F-150 brings a highly recognizable, classic Shelby bold appearance and over forty-five proprietary, high-performance enhancements including an optional supercharger that boasts 700HP.
“Ever since Shelby introduced an upgrade to the 2011-14 Ford SVT Raptors and then ‘upgraded the upgrade’ with the 700+HP Shelby Baja 700 Raptor, our Customers have wondered what other truck enhancements we could create,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American.
“And since current F-150’s top-of-the-line engine spec is similar to the new Mustang’s 5.0L V8, it plays nicely into our expertise in the development of this platform,” said Keith Belair, Shelby American Chief Operating Officer. “With our recently introduced high-horsepower Shelby Super Snake built from the 5.0L V8 Mustang GT engine, we’re seeing great usability and durability and we’re confident this new Shelby F-150 will deliver the same kind of excitement our Customers expect from Shelby.”
The massive power comes from an optional supercharger that includes an oversized cold air intake, billet aluminum high flow throttle body, aluminum heat exchanger, higher flowing fuel injectors and an updated calibration. Muscle-car enthusiasts will appreciate the custom-tuned, black-tipped, Borla dual exhaust system that roars to match the power of the blower.
As with every Shelby produced, a great deal of attention is placed upon controlling the enhanced horsepower, so Shelby engineers teamed up with Fox shocks and BDS Suspension to engineer a custom-tuned performance suspension only available on the 2016 Shelby F-150. It features four aluminum-body, Fox 2.5 inch Internal Bypass Reservoir shocks with Dual Speed Adjusters. This technology allows the driver to adjust for precise suspension tuning for high performance handling on any terrain or driving conditions.
And speaking of driving conditions, the Shelby F-150 will feature 18-inch custom Shelby wheels paired with next-generation BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires specifically designed for off-road performance.
Shelby will build these F-150s through a manufacturing and distribution partnership with select Ford dealers through Tuscany Motor Company, a 27-year Ford bailment and specialty vehicle manufacturer based out of Elkhart, IN.
Shelby will only offer 500 of these Shelby F-150 trucks through a select network of Ford dealers. Customers are encouraged to visit the website to configure one of the 5 color and stripe combinations for their truck including Black, Blue Flame, Magnetic, Oxford White and Race Red.
“Tuscany is excited to partner with Shelby to help bring this F-150 to market,” said Jeff Burttschell, Vice President of Sales, Tuscany Motor Co. “There’s not a company that brings big performance to Ford better than Shelby and there’s no company that can launch innovative brands like Black Ops, Tonka or Shelby to the truck space better than Tuscany.”
“Offering the new Shelby F-150 through dealerships is a terrific opportunity for those who have always wanted a Shelby truck,” said Gary Patterson, Shelby American Vice President International & Strategic Sales. “Customers won’t need to send their vehicle to Shelby for conversion and then wait for it to return because they can literally drive it right off the lot. And by working with Tuscany, we know customers will enjoy a best-in-class truck buying experience.”
The normally aspirated, 395HP Shelby F-150 starts at $85,495, but adding the 700HP supercharger brings the total solution to $98,995.

Smart Shopping Tips for Used Trucks
Guest Article


Driving a truck can define your lifestyle. Plenty of Americans couldn't get by in their day-to-day life without one, whether they need it for hauling, towing, off-roading, or just moving objects. For this investment, buying brand new isn't always an option. Buying pre-owned makes more financial sense. There are plenty of used trucks, in great condition, available at a fraction of the price of their new counterparts. There's a stigma associated with buying pre-owned, but buying used doesn't have to be a gamble if you know what to look for in a vehicle. Below are a few key points to look for when looking at vehicles.

Previous Use

Try to find out how the previous owner used the vehicle. If it was used for hauling, heavy towing, or off-roading, it might have taken a beating and be in worse shape. If the information is not readily available, try to look at its physical condition. How's the paint around the bed? How's the bed itself? Plenty of information about a used trucks' past can be found through careful observation. If the one you like looks pretty rough, it might have done a good amount of heavy hauling.


While lower mileage is more promising than high mileage, the trick is to look at how the mileage accumulated. Fewer miles with heavy loads are harder on a vehicle than more miles with lighter loads. You also want to try to find out if most mileage was done on highways and freeways or done in stop-and-go traffic. This answer might not be readily available, but you may be able to tell by paying attention to the condition of the truck's body and tires.

Clean Title

Today, most vehicle history reports can be found on the internet. A quick search will let you know about previous accidents, repairs, and specific mechanic information. Severe damage or irresponsible repairs can significantly lower a truck's price, but can also signify that the truck will require more work in the future. For buyers who enjoy doing their own automotive repairs and feel comfortable working on their own vehicles, this might not be a deciding factor. Many people, though, want a vehicle they can start using comfortably right after buying.

Future Use

What are you planning on doing with the truck? If you need it for heavy hauling or towing, you want to look into a diesel engine, which will both be stronger and have a better lifespan than gasoline engines. If you only need it for daily errands or commuting to and from work, a gasoline engine will save you money on fuel.

If you know what to look for, looking at used trucks can both save money and find a great vehicle that will serve you, your work, and your family for years to come.
