Shelby has a new tremendous truck, and it is centered on the Tremendous Duty. The truck commencing life as a Ford F-250 Super Responsibility is not what would make it tremendous, nevertheless. No, this Shelby F-250 Tremendous Baja receives its identify from being an outright monster off-road.
It is just one extra off-road-focused Ford truck in a fresh sea of other individuals. There is the typical F-150 Raptor, the incoming Raptor R, a Tremendous Obligation Tremor and the Shelby Raptor to pick from. That is the checklist if we restrict our alternatives to just the Ford factory and Shelby American — Shelby itself is closely relying on truck product sales these times, even more so than the Mustang. The F-250 Super Baja is the truck for somebody who wants Baja desert-working abilities and Super Obligation towing power — hell of a niche. But hey, the 2021 F-150 Raptor can only tow 8,200 kilos. This Super Duty can haul up to 20,000 lbs ., which is no fewer than what it can do from the manufacturing unit in this configuration.
That significant tow rating comes many thanks to Ford’s PowerStroke 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V8 motor that creates 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-ft of torque. It stays stock and retains the Ford manufacturing facility guarantee. Even so, the suspension is wholly distinct from what you’ll find beneath a normal F-250.
Shelby provides tailor made entrance radius arms and dual steering stabilizer, a BDS Suspension elevate package, Fox Racing shocks with reservoirs front and again, 18-inch wheels and 37-inch BFGoodrich KM3 tires. The body is modified to suit the Shelby’s overall look druthers, but also to assist in off-road driving. It will get powder coated entrance and rear steel bumpers, fender flares, added tow points, steps with rock sliders and lights and a functional ram air hood. The listing goes on with a bed-mounted twin-tire rack (for two spares), mattress liner, Shelby stripes/badges, tinted windows, additional LED lighting during the truck and a painted front grille with what may well be the tackiest “Ford” emblem procedure we’ve at any time observed. It looks like the logo was wrapped with a black human body wrap, and it does not look superior.
The inside provides new leather seat covers, Shelby accents and embroidery, stainless metal gauges, carbon fiber accents all about, Shelby flooring mats, steel racing pedals, and a serialized plate on the dash.
There will only be 250 of these Tremendous Baja pickups for the 2021 design year, and they have a starting off rate of $125,805. That consists of the truck by itself in the rate. You are going to be capable to decide on a person up at select dealers across the region.
