LISTEN 03:42

When Ford announced the new generation F-150 Raptor everyone expected to see at least a small power increase. Well, turns out Ford decided to offer the same engine under the hood: a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. A very disappointing news for every Raptor fan out there.

Shelby however has the solution: its latest pack based on the new generation F-150 Raptor delivers no less that 525 horsepower. Still, way under the Ram 1500 TRX, but a lot better than a standard Raptor, right?

What changes does the 2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor offer under the hood?

The new Shelby Raptor is powered by the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine as the F-150 Raptor, but adds a performance intake with high flow filter and a performance aluminum intercooler

Under the hood, the Shelby F-150 Raptor retains the same 3.5-liter, EcoBoost V-6 engine from the standard Raptor, but adds a few tricks to it. First of all, Shelby adds a performance intake with a high flow filter and a performance aluminum intercooler. There is also an oversized air intake tube and a Shelby tuned performance exhaust system.

As a result, the Shelby F-150 Raptor delivers a total of 525 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque - 75 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque more than the standard F-150 Raptor.

However, when compared to the previous generation Shelby Raptor, the new model doesn’t bring any power upgrades.

What’s different on the exterior?

First of all, the truck gets a new Baja Raptor hood with intake and extraction vents

Don’t get us wrong, we really like the look of the new generation F-150 Raptor, but the Shelby F-150 Raptor takes it a step forward. First of all, the engine hood was replaced with a new Baja Raptor hood with intake and extraction vents. The grille stays the same, but the F-O-R-D lettering is replaced by S-H-E-L-B-Y lettering and there are two LED lights on each side. The car is also equipped with a steel, flat black front bumper featuring two air flow vents, a 30-inch curved LED light bar, and two smaller, 10-inch LED driving lights.

At the rear, you will see the same steel, flat-black rear bumper with two 10-inch LED driving lights, and two LED square lights. The bed also features a steel, flat-black chase rack and comes equipped with full-size spare wheel mounts. A 50-inch power LED light bar makes the night off-roading a lot safer.

The truck rides on a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 37-inch BFG KM3 mud-terrain tires. Finally, Shelby striping and badging, and a serialized engine plate and dash plaque complete the package.

What changes were made on the interior?

The interior is wrapped in black leather and there are several carbon fiber accents

Changes to the interior are not as impressive as the ones from the exterior. Shelby did, however, trim the interior in leather and added several carbon fiber accents. The floormats are also new, the pedals were replaced by new Billet racing pedals, and the windows were covered in a deep-tinted film.

How much does it cost?
