Even if you’ve recently pursued an impressive pickup like the Ford F-150, we’re sure you’re still seeking ways to elevate the aesthetics and capabilities of your ride. Well, this isn’t particularly difficult, as customers can add a number of ROUSH amenities if they’re looking to elevate their new vehicle.
Below, we’ve reviewed the various “pickup offerings” that are available at a ROUSH dealership. Whether you’re looking to purchase the truck outright or looking to modify your current ride, we’re sure this information will provide you with plenty of insight as you’re looking to design your new pickup…
This variation of the Roush performance pickup truck may be the “standard” offering, but there certainly isn’t anything standard about this hulking pickup. Opting for the various Roush amenities will truly transform your vehicle into one of the most intimidating rides on the road. The company essentially builds off the already-rugged Ford F-150, adding a number of amenities that will spruce up the nameplate. This includes a number of exterior features, including graphics and a completely revamped side-exit exhaust system. The inside of the ride sees similar amenities, as the brand includes their durable floor liners (thus protecting the interior materials when drivers decide to test the vehicle’s off-roading prowess).
Of course, one of the major factors of this specific truck is the mechanical configuration, as Roush partnered with the racing team FOX to deliver a one-of-a-kind driving experience. The brand offers their incredible 2.0 Performance Series Suspension System, which includes high-quality coilovers and shocks. Partnered with 20-inch wheels and Mickey Thompson Baja tires, owners can truly expect one of a unique driving experiences out there.
ROUSH F-150 SC
This specific version of the Roush pickup elevates the amenities that are available on the “standard” F-150 model. For instance, the exterior is highlighted by a ROUSH front grille with the accompanying Clearance Lighting, as well as the brand’s bumper cover. Outback, customers will find the brand’s fender flares (with the Clearance Lighting), as well as the unique ROUSH license plate and frame. Most notably, the 2.3-liter TVS Supercharger Engine was included under the hood. While the Ford F-150’s various engines are undoubtedly capable, this unit takes the pickup’s power to a whole new level, pumping out an incredible 600 horsepower.
Customers will also have the ability to choose from a number of optional amenities as they’re building their ROUSH pickup truck. These offerings include:
- “Splash” Graphic (replaces standard “Heritage” graphic)
- Black Leather Seating (with silver stitching)
- Console Vault
- The LoJack Security System

ROUSH Nitemare F-150
If you’re looking for incredible power, then this version of the pickup truck should certainly be atop your list of potential targets. This vehicle includes the “ROUSHcharged” 5.0-liter engine, which has the ability to crank out a practically unmatched 600 horsepower and 557 pound-feet of torque. This has a predictable influence on performance, as drivers can expect to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in only 4.2 seconds. These impressive specs clearly played a big role in the nameplate being regarded as the “Fastest Factory Street Truck in the World.” In an attempt to elevate these power and performance specs, even more, the brand included their rugged two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive configurations, providing customers with plenty of flexibility as they’re designing their new truck.
Of course, the engine isn’t the only reason why this pickup truck has earned the “nightmare” moniker. Rather, engineers included a number of exterior amenities that will make your pickup one of the most intimidating rides on the road. This includes the “NITEMARE” fender badge and tailgate graphic, as well as a sport “hockey stripe” along the side. Meanwhile, the exhaust system includes a black top with the NITEMARE logo, emphasizing that your vehicle shouldn’t be messed with. Finally, the awe-inspiring 22-inch black seven-spoke wheels will reaffirm why you opted for this variation in the first place.
This variation of the pickup is arguably the most versatile among the offerings. After all, the vehicle delivers a unique mix of power and style. In regards to performance, engineers included their 3.0 High-Performance Off-Road Suspension System, meaning your truck will always be prepared to travel off the beaten path. The accompanying 20-inch Beat protection Wheels will also make it easy to travel through any types of road conditions.
“Improving on the Raptor was a big challenge,” said Nic Shafer, ROUSH Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “Ford Performance has delivered the ultimate in street and off-road capability in the all-new Raptor. We at ROUSH had to work hard to improve the vehicle for the serious off-road enthusiast, focusing on extreme off-road capability. We feel we have accomplished this with our all-new ROUSH package.”
Of course, while these various ROUSH inclusions will boost your pickup truck to a whole new level, there’s no denying that the Ford F-150 is already a mighty impressive ride. Since you’re presumably focused on power, you’ll surely appreciate the five engine options that are available. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine is one of the most popular offerings, as the unit is capable of pumping out 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine is the next-largest offering, as the system delivers an incredible 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The 3.5-liter Ti-VCR V6 (282 horsepower, 253 pound-feet of torque), 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 (385 horsepower, 387 pound-feet of torque), and the H.O. 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 (450 horsepower, 510 pound-feet of torque) are among the other offerings.
It’s pretty evident that the Ford F-150 is already one of the most impressive pickups in the entire industry. Well, if you’re looking to take that nameplate to the next level, you can’t do much better than ROUSH’s array of offerings.
