Aftermarket tuner Roush is largely known in the automotive industry for turning Ford Mustangs into monsters that produce insane amounts of horsepower. Now guess what? The tuner has entered the super duty truck market and has recently unveiled the 2018 Roush Ford Super Duty F-250, and this thing looks pretty sick!
Taylor Bloor, vice president for global sales for Roush Performance, said that this is the perfect car for drivers who want an aggressive, no-compromise look for their pickup truck, making it an ideal entry into the Super Duty market. This 2018 Roush Super Duty F-250 doesn’t only look intimidating with its offroad stance, but it also is not afraid to get dirt on it. It is reliable and functional, and it is cool too.
Similar to most Roush tuned cars out there, the Roush F-250 gets a number of added pieces that make it look tough. Firstly, it had been given a Fox 2.0 Performance suspension system along with a 1.5 inch leveling kit. The body sits on a set of 20 inch wheels with integrated bead protection. During Roush’s press release, they said that the capped chrome wheels can withstand Ford’s factory towing capabilities. These are wrapped in BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain 35.3 inch tires that provide all the traction you will need. It also has a new exhaust system that can be heard around your neighbourhood.
To really get people’s attention, Roush didn’t only give it an aggressive stance, but also added a number of visual upgrades - from a prominent Roush grille, a new front bumper cover that can host adaptive cruise capabilities, to body colour fender flares that help complete the truck’s larger than life appearance. Of course, the cabin also gets Roush branded niceties like embroidered headrests, a serialized console badge, as well as branded and molded floor liners by WeatherTech.
To get this package, you will have to part with $13,880 at the very least. There still are several options available for an additional price. You can already configure your truck at Roush’s website. On the site, you will also see tuning possibilities for models like the F-150 and the Mustang.
Speaking of Roush, there had been reports about a 2018 Ford Mustang that the tuners modified. And what did they do to this? Well, Roush gave it a little bit of an extra push, with a supercharger that increases its output by as much as 700 horsepower and 610 pound feet of torque that comes from the GT’s 5.0 liter V8 engine.
The same upgrade is also available in the Ford F-150 pickup trucks, but it only gets a maximum horsepower of 640 and 600 pound-feet of torque, which still makes it very potent.
