Roush Rolls Out a High Performance Ford Super Duty Package
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.”
Roush Super Duty
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.
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.
