- shelby american, the people who just rolled out the 2021 super snake and two other hot takes on the ford mustang, have turned their hands to the ford f-250 pickup.
- the shelby f-250 super baja features the ford 6.7-liter power stroke v-8 diesel engine that makes 475 horsepower and 1050 pound-feet of torque.
- shelby will make only 250 of the heavily equipped super baja trucks, priced at (brace yourself) $125,805.
people love tough trucks, especially ones that are optimized for off-roading. interest and demand for the ford raptor and the ram trx prove that. so it's only logical that shelby would combine the two names of baja and f-250 to reach the big-truck customer base with the shelby f-250 super baja. has a ring to it, right? with a name like that, of course it comes with lots of off-road goodies plus the mighty power stroke, a turbocharged 6.7-liter v-8 diesel engine that produces 475 horsepower and 1050 pound-feet of torque. it also comes with a hefty price tag.
the shelby f-250 super baja begins life as a 2021 ford f-250 lariat 4x4 with the ford ultimate package that rings in at $68,415. the super baja package from shelby adds roughly $57,470 to the bottom line, bringing this truck to $125,805. that money buys you embroidered leather seats and floor mats with the shelby logo, custom carbon-fiber inlays, billet racing pedals, and a serialized dash plate indicating the build number, which can also be found on the engine cover.
underneath the super baja are the interesting bits that include a beefier steering stabilizer, custom radius arms up front, and a bds lift kit. shelby's front suspension uses heavy-duty coil springs with dual adjustable 2.5-inch fox dampers to absorb rough terrain when things really get moving. to keep the rear axle's motions in check, shelby fits the baja with fox 2.5-inch fox external bypass dampers. clawing into terra firma are 37-inch bfgoodrich mud-terrain km3 tires mounted to 18-inch shelby aluminum wheels. the lighting is extensive: 11.8-inch led fog lights, a curved 40-inch front light bar, and a 50-inch power-actuated light bar mounted to the top of the rack.
at $125,805, the super baja is a serious investment, especially when you consider that a f-250 that chugs diesel and equipped with the off-road tremor package starts in the low $60,000s, roughly half the price of the baja, but it also has nearly half the features. there are plenty of die-hard big-truck fans out there who'd agree the world could use more crazy three-quarter-ton diesel off-road trucks, even if they do begin approaching the price of a modest house.
