Fastest pickup truck of all – the 700HP 2016 Shelby F-150!
The fastest pickup truck – the 700HP 2016 Shelby F-150! When somebody mentions Shelby Cobra, the first thing that comes to mind is huge amount of power. Well this time it is exactly the same and what we are going to show you is collaboration between the engineers at Shelby and the engineers that work on the Ford F-150.
By using their joint expertise they have built the ultimate F-150 fastest pickup truck. You might think that the Raptor is on top of the game in this area but you’d be wrong. This monster has outrageous power, 700 hundred ponies are crammed underneath that huge hood. The 2016 Shelby F-150 is instantly recognizable. The classic Shelby appearance and over 45 high-performance enhancements resulted in this 700 horsepower brute! Blue Oval global product development vice president Raj Nair has said that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will churn out 450 horsepower, yet the fastest pickup truck can do much better than that. No less than 700 horsepower is what the peeps over at Shelby American managed to squeeze out of the V8.

But what’s good about the fastest pickup truck if you can’t go off-road, right? That’s why engineers opted for 2.5-inch internal bypass reservoir shock absorbers with dual speed adjusters from Fox. These babies make a great team with the 18-inch Shelby wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain K02 tires, which are specifically designed for extreme off-road hooning.
Only 500 examples of the 2016 Shelby F150 will be produced. If you’re in the market for one, Shelby American announces that they’ll be made available through a select network of Ford Motor Company dealers. The pricing for the fastest pickup truck? A whooping $98,995!! The 2016 Shelby F150 also has a unique hood, a unique grille with what looks to be a Shelby Super Snake logo, wheel flares at all four corners, Raptor-like vents on the front fenders, a front underbody shield, a tonneau cover and the Shelby-specific graphics package.
