The Shelby F-250 Super Baja is American confidence personified in a pickup truck. This Yankee Doodle battlewagon is what happens when you combine a Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbocharged diesel engine with Shelby American’s specialty tuned off-road suspension. Size matters when you’re talking about a three-quarter-ton, high-performance off-road super truck with enough towing capacity to haul an entire pit crew.
Starting with the engine, the Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke Diesel turns out 475-horsepower and a whopping 1,050 lb.-ft of steel bending torque. Shelby adds the Super Baja with a bespoke suspension system developed with FOX shocks to handle the balance of street driving and weekends spent off-road. This advanced tuned suspension includes dual steering stabilizers, Factory Race adjustable shocks, a BDS lift, adjustable front coil overs, and front radius arms. The F-250 Super Baja rests all its new suspension components on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 37-inch BFGoodrich rubber with not one but two spare tires mounted in the bed on a steel chase rack – like a Baja Trophy Truck.
Inside the Shelby F-250 Super Baja truck, passengers are treated to a full-leather interior. The F-250 Super Baja truck’s interior also features carbon-fiber accents, embroidered floor mats, billet racing pedals, and stainless steel gauges. The starting price of the limited-edition Shelby F-250 Super Baja is $125K. Features on this truck include rock sliders with exterior lights, a bed liner, tinted windows, a painted front grille, XL power steps, and the iconic Shelby go-fast racing stripes. If you want a Shelby F-250 Super Baja to park next to your Shelby Mustang GT350R or GT500 you better act fast because Shelby American is only building 250 examples.
