Ford’s new generation Raptor is one quite impressive pickup truck, but we can’t say that it has no any worthy rival. After all, Ram has unveiled an impressive Rebel TRX concept which is going to enter into the production pretty soon. The upcoming vehicle promises a class-leading performance supported by the impressive supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, which is capable of producing up to 707 horsepower. Plus, we got an information that Nissan is getting ready to introduce the first ever Titan Nismo truck. The high-performance half-ton pickup should feature around 545 hp strong twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 engine. So, what do you think, how come that Blue Oval let this happen? Well, they didn’t. Moreover, they have a truck that’s going to humiliate both rivals. It’s an impressive and gorgeous 2017 Ford Shelby F-150 Super Snake.
2017 Ford Shelby F-150 Super Snake: Performance
The high-performance pickup is introduced last Saturday at Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show that took place at company’s facilities in Southern California. According to them, the F-150 Super Snake is paired with an outstanding 5.0-liter supercharged V8. The Coyote mill is capable of delivering a whopping 750 horsepower which is around 50 ponies over the predecessor. You will be able to choose between rear- and all-wheel drive setups. We have to mention that this truck can’t go on any serious off-roading. As you can see, the ground clearance is pretty low, which suggest it’s made for street duties only. However, the carmaker cooperated with Borla and Ford Performance for the development, so we expect nothing but perfect handling.
Design Details and Features
Styling wise, the 2017 Ford Shelby F-150 Super Snake features a number of unique styling cues, both on the exterior and interior. The car manufacturer added a completely new hood and spoilers, as well as massive bumpers. The truck rides on 2-inch Shelby retro chrome wheels with red Shelby brake caliper covers and high-performance tires. Around back, the vehicle sports polished stainless steel dual exhaust tips. As we mentioned earlier, the pickup sports a special performance suspension that lowers the truck. The Super Snake theme is pretty frequent inside as well. More precisely, there are Shelby logos on console lid, floor mats, and headrests.
Price and Warranty
We have to mention that there won’t be too many F-150 Super Snakes available. More precisely, the carmaker decided to introduce only 150 pieces. But in case you want this kind of vehicle, you need to have $96,880, which is the price of the amazing truck. The price also includes 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
