Shelby Automotive knows how to tweak a Ford for maximum performance, but if you’re unwilling to give up on practicality then its the tuner’s trucks that might fit the bill. An excellent example is the new 2021 Shelby F-250 Super Baja, which takes the already-beefy F-250 and gives it an off-roading makeover. That includes 1,050 lb-ft of torque from its 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel.
To that – and the standard 10-speed automatic transmission – Shelby adds a host of suspension and tuning upgrades. There’s a Shelby by FOX performance suspension system, a FOX 2.0 dual steering stabilizer, and special FOX 2.5 adjustable reservoirs and backup adjustable shocks for the front wheels. Those at the rear get FOX 2.5 factory race adjustable shocks with piggyback reservoirs.
18-inch custom wheels with 37-inch BFG KM3 tires make sure ground clearance isn’t an issue. Neither should visibility be, with a complete refit of LED drive lights and light bars. Inside, a leather retrim and new badging are onboard to remind you just why you spent $125,805 on a trophy truck.
