In case you want to drive a Ford-sourced pickup truck that delivers more from 450-hp Raptor, there might be one interesting solution. It comes in form of the 2018 Roush F-150 SC – the workhorse that delivers impressive off-road performance and plenty of power.
Blue Oval-based pickup truck comes paired with Ford’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine. The mill has been coupled with a TVS R2650 Eaton supercharger and as such it manages to squeeze off a whopping output of 650 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle received a special exhaust system with a baffling setup in order to create unique sounds. Moreover, the potential buyers will be able to pick between the standard dual tip Performance exhaust system and more interesting dual tip Active exhaust system that provides the driver opportunities to pick between “loud” and “quiet” modes. The choice of the sound can be switched either through the console dial or via the mobile app.
The 2018 Roush F-150 SC is also mated to the 2.0 coilover suspension that lifts the front end of the truck by two inches and thus enables quite amazing off-road ride. Off-road adventures will be essentially better thanks to Mickey Thompson Baja ATX P3 Hybrid All-Terrain tires and new Roush-sourced 20-inch alloy wheels.
The tuner made a few styling changes, too. There’s a Roush-branded grille in the front, as well as a totally new bumper cover. Plus, they’ve added fender flares with accent lighting, while the cabin gets Roush leather seating in black and carbon and special off-road utility kit.
The F-150 SC package will cost exactly $22,999. However, the basic 5.0-liter F-150 cost around $30,000, which means that you won’t be able to find the Roush-based pickup truck below $53,000. The package also includes a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and it’s already available for preorder.
