Shelby American introduces the 525 horsepower Ford F-150 Raptor

Available immediately, Shelby American has announced its all-new version of the Ford F-150 Raptor. And in typical Shelby fashion, their Raptor is more powerful and capable than what we already see from the factory – which is saying a lot.

2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor: Details

The focal point of the new Shelby Raptor is that the truck’s high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine delivers more power and torque than before, with 525 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque. That’s 75 more horsepower and 100 more torque. This is made possible by a high-flow air cleaner, larger air intake tube connected to it, upgraded intercooler, one-piece heat shield, proprietary tuning and performance exhaust. .

He’ll need it to lug all that extra body armor we see around the outside of that go-anywhere van. Ground contact is a set of 37-inch tires, wrapping 18-inch wheels. The Fox Racing suspension system appears to have been intact save for a BDS lift kit.
