Shelby American is at it again. This time is the Ford Shelby Raptor, which is based on the latest high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6 Raptor. The truck gets a boost in power to the tune of 525 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque. The 10-speed automatic is still there. The truck rides higher on a modified suspension with a 3-inch lift, has custom off-road bumpers, a spare tire carrier, and an off-road light bar.

The power increase comes courtesy of a modified air intake and an engine controller tune.

Shelby American estimates the price of these trucks at $117,460, including a stock Ford Raptor. The price of this package by itself is $49,295. The folks at Shelby will do a conversion for you if you provide them with a second-generation Raptor that already has a title.

The interior also gets custom touches with Shelby Baja Raptor stitching, floor mats, and badges. Let us know what you think about this new truck in the comments below.
