Want Something More Unique Than A Raptor? Check Out The Roush F-150

Roush / Comments

You can even buy one at your local Ford dealership with a V8 engine.

The Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most outlandish trucks on the market. Many automakers have teased us with concepts targeted right at the Raptor but so far none have taken the same risk as Ford by offering an all-out performance truck with serious off-road cred. The Raptor may be like no other OEM truck but aftermarket tuning company Roush thinks its new F-150 could give Ford Performance a run for its money. For the 2018 model year, Roush revealed an off-road Raptor competitor with a supercharged V8 engine. For 2019, Roush has been a bit more modest.

The supercharged V8 Roush kit started at $22,999, on top of the cost to buy the F-150. This 2019 Roush F-150 starts at a more reasonable $13,450 over the factory MSRP and can even be ordered through all Roush certified Ford dealerships. So, is the Roush F-150 worth the added cost?

As standard, the package includes a dual tip cat-back performance exhaust system, Fox 2.0 suspension with a two-inch lift kit, 20-inch Roush wheels with General Grabber ATX LT305/55R20 all-terrain tires, and numerous aesthetic upgrades. Roush will also offer an optional active exhaust system, which uses an electronic valve to switch between loud, quiet, and custom modes via a mobile app or console-mounted switch.

To differentiate it over a standard F-150, the Roush truck features a unique front grille with accent lighting, fender flares, a new front bumper cover, and a square "R" hitch cover. Customers can also option an ExTang soft tonneau cover to go over the bed. Inside, Roush includes custom floor liners by WeatherTech and a serialized ROUSH console badge. To add even more flare, Roush also offers a black and carbon leather upgrade, console vault, and off-road utility kit.

The $13,450 package can be added on top of an XLT or Lariat F-150 Supercrew 4WD with any engine option, meaning you can have a 2019 Roush F-150 for as little as $52,870. Unlike the Raptor, the Roush F-150 can be ordered with a 5.0-liter V8 if you so prefer. You can even go on Roush's website to configure your dream F-150.
