Ford Roush F-150 Poses Tough Competition for Ford Raptor

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It looks like the 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor has found a tough rival in the new 2020 Roush F-150, which is packed with a supercharged V8 engine.

Dubbed as the epitome of off-road pickup truck performance, the 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor made heads turn when it debuted with its 450-horsepower twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 and its advanced Fox racing suspension.

But despite the power and performance the new-gen Raptor delivers, there are still customers who can’t move past the fact that the model lost its V8 engine. And for them, the arrival of the Roush F-150 is something to anticipate.

The Roush brand is known in the segment for building highly-modified Mustang models but it has since expanded to high-performance F-150 models for street and off-road use.

Several models have rolled out from the brand for a few years now and for the 2020 model year, it has just released its official lineup that customers can get their hands on.

Roush Performance has confirmed the arrival of its 2020 Nitemare and 2020 F-150 SC pickup, which are now available to order at all Roush Authorized Ford dealerships.

The 2020 Nitemare is the ideal choice for buyers looking for a made-for-street vehicle. It runs on a 5.0-liter V8 equipped with a TVS R2650 Supercharger and makes 650 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque. With this amount of power, a Regular Cab 4×4 version of the truck can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.98 seconds. It’s a significant improvement from the Raptor’s 5.1 seconds.

The Nitemare pack is available for an additional $19,150 to the price of the base vehicle. It includes a dual-tip cat-back exhaust, Roush grille, custom front bumper cover, lowe kit, 22-inch wheels, Continental CrossContact tires, puddle lamps, fender badges, branded floor liners, Roush keyfobs, graphics, and windshield banner.

Customers also have the option to equip the Nitemare with a premium leather package, active exhaust, off-road utility kit, console vault, retractable bed cover, and bed cargo manager.

The 2020 Roush F-150 SC, meanwhile, costs $24,000 with the inclusion of the same features as the Nitemare. The only difference is that it has a Fox 2.0 Off-Road Suspension System, General Tire Grabber ATX 33-inch tires, fender flares, and more design upgrades.
