I hope so. Maybe the 750 hp 5.0 they put in the Shelby F-150.

I'd never own anything with a v-6 in it.


The R will be your huckleberry then, but 250hp and 140ft-lbs less than a Hellcat motor out of a light weight V6 isn't anything to sneeze at.

If 450hp and over 500ft-lbs with a flat torque curve doesn't put a bump in your shorts, then.....

You don't seem like the $75k toy pickup truck kinda guy anyways. (Neither am I, but I'd go jump some [email protected] truck if he let me!!)

Lame video. The takeaway for me is that nobody really needs this truck, if the only thing they can come up with is a nature-fest fast and furious just to have a cup of coffee. But thanks.

Nope, they really don't interest me.

I have a few friends that tow with 1/2 ton Ecoboost and they run extremely hot pulling grades.

I'd rather have a V-8.

Here's me driving a friends new Shelby GT350. I love HP as much as the next guy, I just don't care for a V-6.

^ I hear ya.

I got a ride in a new GT350 Mustang last year as well. 6 speed and it hit HARD! Maybe the manual trans, maybe the more hp (but less tq), but it felt noticeably faster than our SRT.

Wrong forum. All you will get here is the whiney, it cannot tow, it only has 450 hp, tires are too big, only has 6 cylinders, excuses for those that cannot afford or lack the talent to drive off road.
