Roush Rolls Out a High Performance Ford Super Duty Package

2019 Roush Super Duty

Roush upgrades to the Ford Super Duty include a unique look, beefy wheels and tires and a Raptor-like suspension setup.

For years now, Roush Performance has been offering serious upgrade packages for the Ford F-150, but more recently, the well-known aftermarket tuning brand has turned its attention to the current Super Duty lineup. While the Roush-modified F-250 and F-350 don’t pack the monster power of the F-150 SC or Nitemare, a host of exterior upgrades transform the biggest F-Series pickups into what Roush is calling most capable heavy-duty truck ever.

“The 2019 Roush Super Duty is our toughest, heaviest-duty truck,” said Jack Roush Jr. “We’ve designed this vehicle to work hard and play harder with unmatched Roush performance and style, whether you need to haul heavy loads of equipment, blaze a trail off-road, or tow your boat to the lake for the weekend.”

According to our friends over at Ford-Trucks.com, this new Roush package is designed for the 2019 Ford F-250 and F-350 with either the 6.2-liter gasoline V8 or the 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel V8. As mentioned above, the package doesn’t add any extra power, so the Roush Super Duty offers the same 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque with the gas V8 or 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque with the diesel, but other key aspects of the ¾- and 1-ton trucks are heavily improved upon.

On the outside, Roush adds a unique grille with signature lighting, a custom front bumper cover, body-colored fender flares, body-colored bumpers, black fender badges, a hood graphic, a windshield banner, rocker graphics, a tailgate blackout graphic and 20-inch wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires.

On the inside, the Roush Super Duty features WeatherTech floor liners, a Roush gauge cluster overlay in diesel models only, embroidered headrests and a serialized console badge, but the most significant upgrades are under the body.

This includes the Roush/Fox 2.0 Performance Series suspension system with a leveling kit, along with a custom exhaust system on diesel models. With two diesel-only options, the PowerStroke is the easy choice for anyone buying a 2019 F-250 or F-350 specifically to build a Roush Super Duty.

Reasonable Pricing

The Roush Super Duty package improves off-road abilities while also presenting a unique, aggressive look on the outside with some subtle upgrades inside, but the most interesting aspect is the price. With everything mentioned above, the Roush Super Duty upgrade package starts at just $15,685. When you take into account the suspension, wheels, tires and exterior upgrades alone, $16,000 is a pretty reasonable price, so this could be a popular option for those folks with brand new Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups who want added performance and an aggressive look.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
