Pickup trucks are judged based on towing and cargo transport. Such trucks do a good job delivering such demand to its buyers. However, pickup trucks have evolved. Recently, trucks are made even more powerful to do serious off-roading and much more.

Pickup trucks receive excellent suspension systems and lightweight materials for impressive overall performance. Now, pickup trucks are not just mere helpers out in the field. They are sleeker, more powerful, and more aggressive in every sense.

A testament to this is the 2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snake.

Having a truck called as Super and Snake is intimidating and most likely that is one of Ford’s goals. This pickup truck means serious business. It demands attention as it comes with presence enough to silence anyone. However, there is the 2017 Ford F-150 without the modification in impressive in its own right.

First, it is all about the F-150…

It is good, really good! The 2017 Ford F-150 offers many choices for one to have the perfect truck. It also comes with Pro Trailer Backup Assist which is definitely a prayer answered when reversing a trailer.

It also comes in with impressive towing capacity. Well, it actually depends on the drivetrain. An F-150 with 3.5-liter EcoBoost and two-wheel drive is capable of an insane 12,200-pounds.

So far, the only truck which bested the 2017 Ford F-150 is the Chevrolet Siverado which can tow 12,500-pounds. All of its other competitors failed to match this number.

So, how Super is the F-150 Super Snake?

If 750-horsepower is not super enough, then I don’t know what else is. Note that this is a muscle truck. This is not some ultra sleek roadster which is obvious due to the capability of producing 750-horsepower.

That’s definitely a whole new ball game.

The Super Snake's 750-horsepower allows this truck the serious performance despite it's large size. This truck comes with a 5.0 Supercharged V-8, if that doesn't get the job done I don't know what will. However, a downer is that the 2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snake is designed for on-road use only.

This is because of its low front air dam and side sills.

The Super Snake comes in attractive for having 22-inch chrome wheels and six different colors to choose from. This powerful pickup truck is available in either rear- or four-wheel drive with a three year or 36,000-mile warranty. To make it even more highly-coveted, only 150 examples will be sold.

Its price is insanely expensive as it is powerful. The starting price is at $96,880. However, such price tag is definitely not an issue for serious and die-hard fans.

Super Snake or the regular F-150?

The Super Snake can’t be taken off-roading through the rugged terrains of Mojave Desert, but it can seriously outrun other smaller vehicles because of its power.

Remember, only 150 examples will be made. This in it of itself makes it automatically a must-have. If one desires to have a pickup truck without the modification, the 2017 Ford F-150 remains an excellent option especially for its towing prowess. End of the day, the Super Snake is a good option if one has more cash to spend.
