2024 Ford Shelby F-150 Debuts As New Raptor R Alternative

The Ford F-150 Raptor R debuted for the 2023 model year, and proceeded to receive some updates as part of the F-150’s broader refresh for the 2024 model year, too. Those updates included a 20 horsepower bump for its supercharged 5.2L V8, taking that figure up to an astounding 720. While the F-150 Raptor R no longer has a true, direct competitor following the discontinuation of the Ram TRX, is has plenty of rivals in the aftermarket. Now, that list has expanded to include the all-new 2024 Ford Shelby F-150, too.

The 2024 Ford Shelby F-150 takes the regular old, run of the mill Lariat trimmed, four-wheel drive, SuperCrew pickup and transforms it into something extra special in a variety of ways. On the outside, that includes the addition of a Shelby dual-intake hood with vents and heat extractors, a new front bumper and facia, body-color fender flares, power running boards that double as rock guards, fender vents, Shelby badging and stripes, and 22-inch Shelby wheels wrapped with 35-inch tires. Inside the cabin, one will find carbon fiber trim, billet racing pedals, embroidered floor mats, and a serial console plaque, to boot.

In terms of mechanical updates, the 2024 Ford Shelby F-150 features a Shelby by Fox 2.5 suspension system with internal bypass shocks, a three-inch BDS lift, and performance rear traction bars. Customers can choose to leave the factory 5.0L V8 Coyote stock, or opt for a supercharger system with a carbon fiber air intake, bigger fuel injectors, and a Borla catback exhaust, which lifts output all the way up to 785 horsepower – more than the Raptor R.

For the 2024 model year, only 800 Shelby F-150 pickups are slated to be built for the U.S. market, and can be purchased through authorized distributors. The 2024 Ford Shelby F-150 starts out at $130,000 for the naturally-aspirated version, or $139,995 for the supercharged variant.

    Which is worse, option one or option two, both of them over $100,000!

      The Raptor is worse. Too, “Look at me! Look at me!” Ironically, I’d say the same thing about the Cybertruck.

    This presumably would have a bit more (lot more?) payload and towing capacity, and actually probably fit more with the actual use of more buyers by ditching the off-road capabilities.
