“Many considered Carroll Shelby the original 'most interesting man in the world' while he was alive and we're highlighting the many intriguing facets of the legend during our 2023 centennial celebration,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “Carroll loved motoring both on and off the road, especially in rugged terrain. He would trek across the desert on both two and four wheel vehicles. His Terlingua, Texas, ranch even owned the first production Ford Bronco. We're honoring that Shelby heritage with a special off-road truck that recalls his adventures.”
Carroll Shelby had a long history with performance trucks and SUV's; he experimented and built various models over the years. Shelby played with the Ford Bronco on his West Texas ranch during the 1960s, pioneered the mid-size performance pickups in the 1980s and created the muscle trucks in the early 2000s. His company built a small line of high-performance full-size SUVs in the late 1990s and even unveiled a concept Shelby Expedition in 2004.
Ford's 2023 F-150 is purpose-built to be the toughest, most productive F-150 ever. Updated for the 2021 model year, it introduced all-new features to increase customer productivity, has new connected vehicle innovations such as over-the-air updates and other purposeful technologies. The Ford F-150 is even available with Pro Power Onboard,™ which turns the truck into a mobile generator.
First introduced in 2015, the Shelby F-150 has quickly become a popular off-road capable pickup.
“Carroll really enjoyed modifying trucks throughout his life in pursuit of more performance,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief Designer. “The 2023 Shelby F-150 delivers the rugged capabilities needed for outdoor adventure and all the sophistication required for a fun night on the town. The special Centennial Edition was built for those who want to celebrate Carroll's achievements by driving the most capable and sophisticated truck yet to wear the Shelby nameplate.”
Based on the Lariat 4x4, 5.0L SuperCrew, the 100 Centennial Edition trucks come standard with 400 standard horsepower; and an optional supercharger boosts the V8 engine to 800* horsepower. The heavy-duty suspension and underbody of the Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition truck were built to withstand the toughest conditions with Ford Raptor style FOX shocks that feature top of the line internal bypass technology and adjustable dual speed controls. This proprietary system provides the ability to tune a truck from luxury car smooth to hard core off-road handling.
The interior was completely redesigned to elevate truck ownership experience with style, comfort and utility. The truck has two-toned leather covers with Centennial Edition logos, the official Shelby serial number and Shelby floor mats. Each truck has deep tinted windows to keep the interior cool and a ram-air style hood. A total 100 trucks will but built for the US market.
Each Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition F-150 includes membership in Team Shelby, the worldwide club established in 2008, and will be eligible for documentation in the official Shelby Registry. The package includes a black Stetson hat and a copy of the commemorative Shelby Centennial Book published by Team Shelby.
