Chevrolet hasn’t really embraced the performance truck segment, but it has given off-road enthusiasts the Colorado ZR2. The brand will call that truck a “segment of one” vehicle. Well, since it can outmaneuver the F-150 Raptor, we’ll give it that. But, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake? It’s all alone in the Chevrolet vs Ford rivalry.
While the Silverado musters on, Ford is busy expanding its F-150 portfolio and has tapped Shelby to really give the full-size pickup truck legs. The Shelby F-150 Super Snake takes Ford’s 5.0-liter V8 engine and slaps a supercharger on for 750 horsepower. Ford has also improved the suspension and handling, though those details haven’t been disclosed, according to Ford Authority.
It looks properly menacing, too. While we think the Silverado is a handsome truck, no doubt, there’s no denying the Shelby Super Snake is a badass looking pickup truck.
Shelby plans for 150 examples this year with a $96,880 price tag. That’s a lot of money, but you can’t take $100,000 and buy a performance track at a General Motors dealership, now can you?
