Roush Performance’s new 2016 “RoushCharged” Ford F-150 SC pickup is now shipping to licensed Roush dealers nationwide – excluding those states which enforce CARB emissions standards.
The Ford F-150 SC from Roush utilizes Ford’s factory 5.0-liter Coyote V8, adding the tuning firm’s 2.3-liter Phase 1 Twin Vortices Series (“TVS”) supercharger kit to boost power output by 56 percent, and torque by 44 percent, for a total of 600 horsepower and 557 lb-ft. The TVS supercharger is a relatively new design featuring two four-lobe rotors, each with 160 degrees of twist. It’s supposed to provide superior airflow and thermal efficiency, with less noise, vibration, and harshness than its predecessor.
We’ll take Roush at their word on that.
Beside the vastly-improved power and torque, the 2016 Ford F-150 SC has a Roush/Fox 2.0 Performance Series Suspension System, 20-inch Roush wheels, and Mickey Thompson Baja ATZP3 305/55 tires, in what is a clear attempt to live the Boy Scouts motto: “Always be prepared.” A Side-Exit Exhaust System, Roush fender flares and front grille with clearance lighting, custom front bumper cover, and a Roush graphics package take the 2016 Ford F-150‘s looming presence up to the next level.
“The high-performance lifestyle is what drives our customers,” says Roush Performance Director of Vehicle Operations Justin Schroeder. “That’s equaled only by the passion ROUSH Performance’s people have for designing and engineering American-made vehicles like the 2016 ROUSH F-150 SC with raw power, looks and legacy that meets that need.”
