The 2018 Roush F-150 SC is here at last, and the folks at Roush Performance have managed to squeeze an extra 50 horsepower out of its blown 5.0-liter Coyote V8, thanks in no small part to a new Roush TVS R2650 Supercharger Package. Peak torque output stands at a mighty 610 lb-ft, and you’ll hear every horsepower and pound-foot thanks to its standard, boisterous dual-tip performance exhaust. An active dual-tip exhaust system is available as an option.
Like the outgoing model, the 2018 Roush F-150 SC packs bona fide off-road capability thanks to a Roush/Fox 2.0 coilover suspension kit, which provides two inches of lift at the front of the truck while maintaining the 2018 Ford F-150‘s factory payload/towing capacity. The Roush-modified truck rides on 20-inch Roush-branded wheels with Mickey Thompson Baja ATX P3 Hybrid All-Terrain rubber at all four corners, further enhancing its off-road-ability.
Aesthetically, the new Roush F-150 SC is distinguished from the base factory truck by a full Roush front grille replacement with integrated lighting, a Roush front bumper cover that maintains compatibility with the factory adaptive cruise control system, and big, matte black fender flares with accent lighting. Multiple exterior graphics options are available, and inside, options like Roush leather seating in black or carbon, a Roush console vault, and a Roush off-road utility kit give customers further options for personalization. Serialized Roush plaques adorn the console and engine bay.
“Roush takes pride in providing consumers with innovative and powerful products that stay true to our name,” says Jack Roush Jr. “Our 2018 ROUSH F-150 SC is ready to take on your favorite trail, tow your boat to the lake or handle your daily commute.”
The 2018 Roush F-150 SC starts at $22,999, excluding the cost of the factory donor F-150. This being Roush Performance, the truck ships with a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty, although the company’s rigorous internal testing procedures mean that you’ll never likely have to use it.
