Roush Trail-Inspired F-150 to Debut at New York Auto Show
Newest Roush-tuned F-150 will feature Fox suspension, a unique exterior look and a performance exhaust system.
According to our friends at Motor Authority, Roush Performance will introduce a new “trail-inspired” package for the Ford F-150 at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. The details are very limited right now, with the available information being limited to what was included in a statement from the company and there are no pictures of the new truck. However, we have a good idea of what to expect and, frankly, we aren’t sure what differentiates the trail inspired package differs from the Roush F-150 SC shown here.
Trail Inspired Roush Truck
Based on the details in the Roush release about their New York plans, here is what we know for sure about the trail-inspired Ford F-150 that will debut in the Big Apple.
The truck will be painted Oxford White with trail-inspired splash graphics, a Roush grille, fender flares, a unique front bumper cover, an adjustable exhaust system and a two-inch lift that comes courtesy of a Fox 2.0 suspension system. We don’t know of this trail inspired F-150 will pack the power of the supercharged Roush trucks, but we are hoping that it does, because you can never go wrong with a 650-horsepower pickup.
What we don’t understand is how the truck debuting in New York differs from the new Roush F-150 SC shown here. This already-available package also has unique graphics, grille, flares, bumper cover and a Fox suspension kit, so it sounds like the trail-inspired package could look a whole lot like the SC package. The Roush SC also has custom wheels wrapped in aggressive off-road rubber, which we would expect to see on a trail inspired truck as well.
Perhaps the inspiration of trail use will include something like brush guards, tougher tires and exterior lighting, but even with those items, this truck will still look a great deal like the Roush F-150 SC. Then again, there is nothing wrong with another aftermarket package that will make the half-ton Ford pickup more off-road capable, even if it is similar to something that is already available.
