News and pictures of the 2018 Ford F-150 Shelby Raptor have been released and it’s sure to appeal to any and all interested in a small-run, more powerful Raptor. There will only be 500 of these monsters available and the price tag comes in at $117,460 – a big jump from a stock 2018 Raptor which will set you back $68,165.
So what do you get if you’re willing to drop the extra coin? For starters, you’ll get a pickup with an output of 525 hp and 610 lb-ft torque. Comparatively, the stock 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 delivers 450 hp and 510 lb-ft.
Beyond the engine, the Shelby Raptor has an upgraded suspension featuring adjustable two-stage shocks to go along with all-wheel drive and a locking center differential as well as rear-drive auto-shift.
The Shelby Raptor is harder edged, with more grunt and handling capability. We added adjustable shocks so the driver can even tailor their ride. This truck was designed and tested for those who seek maximum adventure both on and off the road,”
Gary Patterson, Shelby USA President
The Raptor also comes with bigger wheels and tires and a significantly upgraded interior as you can see in the image below.
