Here’s an idea of what the latest Roush Raptor looks like, but a power upgrade is coming later.
Those in Ford circles know Roush well, from creating crazy, 710 horsepower Stage 3 Mustangs to several awesome-looking F-150s, the tuning company’s latest brain child is here. The 2019 Roush Raptor builds upon their existing modified F-150 Raptor by adding some new appearance elements to the truck.
You get a new Chase Rack, as well as the Roush graphics on the hood and bed, as well as embroidered headrests and badging on the console. The $13,000 base package (above the price of the truck) includes axle-back exhaust with a five-inch exhaust tip. You also get Roush’s own 20-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich KO2 tires.
One thing that’s missing from the 2019 Roush Raptor, at least for now, is more power. The company will offer a “Performance Pac” for the new Rush Raptor that will boost power and torque. The combination of a cold-air intake, full three-inch exhaust system and ECU tune will boost horsepower from 450 to 522, and torque from 510 to 565 lb-ft. At present, however, Roush hasn’t announced pricing or a release date.
Autoblog observantly pointed out another omission from the 2019 Roush Raptor spec sheet. The new package is missing Roush-specific Fox off-road shocks. Instead, it appears the company chose to leave the standard shocks from the standard raptor in place. While Roush didn’t comment on why they dropped the shocks, the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor does come with electronically adjustable Fox shocks that tie into the truck’s computers. Removing them might be more headache (and expense) than it’s worth.
Other optional features for the 2019 Roush Raptor include Rigid Industries off-road lights, a branded off-road utility kit, a $395 “console vault” to store your valuables, and a splatter graphics upgrade.
