As North America’s best-selling pickup truck year after year, Ford’s coveted F-150 has always been the epitome of the legendary automaker’s “Built Ford Tough” mantra. With endless trims, configurations, and packages to choose from, simply put, there’s an F-150 for every kind of truck enthusiast. Here at Hillsboro Ford, we thought we’d introduce you to our top 4 beloved F-150 variations, from the formidable fan-favorite Raptor to the lesser-known performance-enhanced Shelby. Keep reading to see which F-150 model speaks to you!
Crafted in collaboration with The Tuscany Motor Company, the F-150 Black Ops pays tribute to the valiant individuals who have served in the American Armed Forces. A portion of the proceeds from each sale supports organizations dedicated to aiding wounded servicemen and servicewomen. Boasting a robust and commanding aesthetic, this vehicle features 20″ Stealth Black Tuscany “Black Ops” Wheels, deep tinted windows, and a customized paint job.
Under the hood, the engine options are just as mighty as you’d expect: there’s a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 and a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, both capable of delivering an ample 365 horsepower. For those seeking even more robust performance, the 5.0-liter V8 powerplant generates an impressive 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Designed for ventures off the beaten path, this model is equipped with heavy-duty shock absorbers, sizable 20-inch wheels, and remarkable 35-inch all-terrain tires, ensuring exceptional capability on rugged terrain.
For decades, Shelby American has been releasing their custom performance-enhanced versions of the Ford F-150 pickup trucks. This iconic performance company takes your standard F-150 and turns it into a powerful, suspension-equipped roaring machine. Equipped with a powerful 5.0L V-8 engine, Shelby churns out 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque as you cruise through New Hampshire. Opting for the supercharged engine elevates the experience, instantly unleashing a formidable 775-hp output. This upgrade is achieved through a larger billet throttle body, high-flow fuel injectors, and an oversized carbon-fiber air intake tube. Thanks to its BDS lift kit, Shelby’s suspension now features Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks with high- and low-speed compression control. Combined with its traction bars and BFGoodrich A/T KO2 all-terrain tires, Shelby lets you venture off the beaten path with unparraled confidence.
The Raptor is truly the F-150 for thrill-seekers at heart, putting the capital F in “fun.” Boasting new FOX Dual Live Valve shocks to provide a more confident, controlled riding experience, the Raptor delivers 450 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V-6 bolted to a 10-speed automatic transmission. These shocks effectively complement the vehicle’s five-link rear suspension system, which has been engineered with extended trailing arms specifically designed to ensure exceptional stability when navigating rough New Hampshire terrains.
For those in search of a timeless Ford truck with a touch more of that unmistakable “built Ford tough” attitude than what’s typically found in the regular F-150, the Tremor emerges as the perfect choice. Featuring powerful, best-in-class engine options, exceptional towing capabilities, innovative off-road potential, and cutting-edge technological and safety features, the F-150 Tremor stands out as one of today’s most sought-after pickups.
The Tremor highlights 18-inch aluminum wheels finished in a dark matte hue, paired with new 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires. This wheel-tire combination not only lends the Tremor a distinctive and aggressive appearance but also enhances ground clearance and widens its stance by an inch. To achieve this, modifications have been made to its front hub knuckles and upper control arms.
Equipped with specialized monotube shocks at the front and twin-tube shocks at the rear, bearing the Tremor logo, this truck is engineered for optimal performance. These shocks are designed to provide softer damping at lower speeds while ensuring enhanced control in challenging off-road conditions.
