2021 Roush Ford F-150 brings rtor-like smoke, charged fire

Roush is not only conquering the asphalt world with his equipped Mustangs, but has also been playing with trucks since 2013. For the 2021 model year, it offers three Ford trucks (Super Duty, F-150 and Ranger) to one car, the Stage 3 Mustang. The newest of these Roush trucks is the F-150, which is based on the four-wheel drive XLT Sport or the SuperCrew 2021 F-150 with Lariat equipment and is powered by the 5.0-liter V-8. The 2021 Roush Ford F-150 starts at $ 16,745 (on top of the cost of the donor truck and before adding the optional supercharger) and is backed by a 3 year / 36.00 mile limited warranty. The finished product looks more aggressive and balanced, but is unmistakably a Roush creation.

Starting with the outside, Roush chooses the front end by adding heat-extracting wide-body fender flares that add 2.8 inches to the width. A Roush high-flow grille hides built-in accent lighting (and clearance LEDs like the Rtor) and looks natural on a Roush bumper cover. This front end looks like it came down from the showroom floor this way.

A standard grhics package contains a variety of roush grhics for exterior use on doors, hood, roof and tailgate. For those looking to go all-in, an optional Side Slash Grhic is available ($ 325). The truck is available in six colors: Agate Black, Race Red, Iconic Siler, Oxford White, Carbonized Gray and Lead Foot.

The front of the Roush F-150 is raised a modest 2 inches thanks to an upgraded, specially ventilated Fox 2.0 Performance Series suspension system. Complementing the leveling kit are 33-inch all-terrain tires from General Grabber A / TX wrapped around Roush’s own 20-inch satin gray wheels for an overall stance appropriate for the road and slightly improved for the dirt. According to reports, there will be an extreme off-road upgrade soon.

Roush spices up the interior with a serialized badge, Roush flooring from WeatherTech, Roush pedals (late availability), and a Roush instrument cluster on the XLT. For a fun touch, puddle lamps show the Roush logo on the floor when the door is open. Optional leather packages ($ 1,850) can be pinned if the customer wants leather seats with the Roush touch.

Roush is also now offering a Ready Package ($ 660) that includes a Roush off-road utility kit that comes in with jumper cables, tow ropes, D-ring hooks, ratchet lashing straps, Roush gloves, and a flashlight Packaged a neat custom is Roush bag. Also included in the ready package is a Roush center console vault for items that deserve double locking.

But what about the F-150’s 5.0 liter engine? This is Roush so is it safely charged? While there is no mention of a blower on the website, Roush informs us that a compressor will be available in late summer. Roush’s 5.0 liter F-150 compressor kit for the 2018-2020 period offers up to 650 horsepower. So we have to see how many ponies Roush can raise for the 2021 model year.

In the meantime, the stock dual-tip cat-back exhaust can be upgraded to Roush’s active exhaust system ($ 1,800), which can be loud or quiet with the push of a button. The increase in performance is rounded off by an optional black 6-piston front brake package (with silver Roush logos) with 13.7-inch rotors for $ 2,975, which was developed together with the Alcon Brakes crew. Interested Roush-er can pre-order the 2021 Roush F-150 now.
