Shelby American has just unveiled their new 2021 Shelby F-250 Super Baja, a truck built for daily and off-road adventure. By combining Ford’s incredible 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel churning out 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque with a Shelby-tuned advanced off-road suspension system, the three-quarter-ton truck delivers both serious off-road capabilities with best-in-class towing.
“The astounding capabilities of the Ford Shelby F-150 truck led to requests for a three-quarter-ton truck that delivered maximum towing capacity and serious off-road capabilities,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “We leveraged expertise gained from our Shelby Raptor and Shelby F-150 programs to create the Shelby F-250 Super Baja pickup.”
The Shelby team carefully developed their version of the class-leading Ford F-250 with the help of FOX performance who created a suspension system that gives the truck a higher ride height, more travel, and improved off-road handling. It’s equipped with 18-inch wheels paired with BFG KM3 37-inch tires, with a pair of spares mounted on a steel chase rack in the bed. The Shelby gets a functional Ram Air Hood with extraction vent, powder-coated steel front, and rear bumpers, tow points, airflow vents, and LED lighting around the truck. Features include painted front grille and fender flares, XL power steps with rock sliders and lights, bed liner, tinted windows, and powder-coated exhaust tips. Exterior Shelby stripes and badges proclaim the truck’s heritage.
“The amazing suspension on the Shelby F-250 Super Baja is engineered to handle a wide variety of terrain, from hardcore off-roading to performance street driving,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief Designer. “It includes a custom BDS lift system, custom front radius arms, and dual steering stabilizer. We install front coilovers with Fox adjustable reservoirs in the front and Factory Race adjustable shocks with piggyback reservoirs in the rear. We integrate functional bodywork to maximize our modifications. In addition to the spectacular torque, Ford’s V8 turbo diesel delivers a best-in-class 475 horsepower. With so much power and extraordinary handling, it is the ultimate heavy-duty truck.”
Shelby performance trucks are legendary for featuring comfortable, handsome interiors. The Shelby F-250 Super Baja has exclusive full leather seat covers, accents and embroidery, stainless steel gauges with a speedometer recalibration, custom carbon fiber accents, embroidered floor mats, and billet racing pedals. Each comes with Shelby Super Baja badges and CSM serialized plate on the dash.
Only 250 of the limited-edition trucks will be available through select Ford dealers in the United States for the 2021 model year and has an MSRP starting at $125,805. Each will be documented in the official Shelby Registry.
