Roush Gives 2019 Ford Raptor More Power And Meaner Looks

Tuning / 5 Comments

The optional performance package will launch at a later date.

After upgrading the 2019 F-150, Roush has given the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor the tuning treatment. Like previous Roush Raptors, the hardcore off-roader has been given an optional power boost and more aggressive exterior styling.

The standard wheels and tires have been replaced with 20-inch black wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires, while a new axle-back exhaust system makes the tough truck's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 sound more aggressive. Other additions include a new a Chase Rack in the bed with optional off-road lighting by Rigid that gives the truck a Baja-inspired look, and a signature Roush graphics package with optional customization finishes.

An optional performance kit will be available at a later date, which will include a higher-flow 3.0-inch exhaust, a cold air intake, and an ECU reflash. Roush isn't ready to confirm the performance specifications yet, but says it will offer "increased performance, throttle response and drivability." The standard Raptor produces 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, so Roush's performance pack should increase the output to around 500 hp.

"The 2019 Roush Raptor is our most capable off-road vehicle to date," said Jack Roush Jr. "From ice and snow to the depths of the desert, this vehicle conquers the terrain with iconic Roush performance and design, especially now that it is available with our Performance Pac engine upgrades."

Inside, the 2019 Roush Raptor features a custom gauge cluster, Roush headrest embroidery and a numbered plaque showing the truck's serial number. Pricing for the 2019 Roush Raptor starts at $13,000 over the regular Raptor, which starts at $50,675 for the SuperCab.
