2015 Roush F-150: Is it the Next Best Off-Road Truck?
It’s not a Ford Raptor but it sure beats the competition!
If you just can’t wait any longer to get your hands on the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, which goes on sale in late 2016, you don’t have to give up playing in the dirt with a factory off-road machine. Roush Performance is well known for their aggressive and well built Ford vehicles, so it’s not surprising that they would give the all-new aluminum bodied Ford F-150 the signature Roush treatment. What you’re looking at is the all-new 2015 Roush F-150 that takes the truck’s performance to a whole new level both on and off-road.
Roush Performance starts off with a bone stock Ford F-150 and improves upon it with a host of body components, Roush graphics, a Roush side-exit exhaust system, and interior components including Roush molded front and rear floor liners from WeatherTech to keep the carpets clean. Of course there’s also a serialized ROUSH console badge to document the F-150’s Roush bloodlines.
Roush took the F-150’s aggressive appearance to the next level with a host of body components such as a Roush front grille that features clearance lightning similar to the Ford Raptor while a Roush front bumper cover and fender flares give the truck a muscular appearance. Around back, the Roush F-150 features a unique “R” hitch cover and Roush license plate frame while a deep rumbling Roush side-exit exhaust system lets everyone know you aren’t pounding around with a run-of-the-mill pickup truck.
This truck is no one-trick pony as evident by the choice of shocks on this factory off-road rig. Roush teamed up with FOX Racing Shox to equip the Roush F-150 with a 2.0 Performance Series suspension system. This suspension features 2-inch diameter coilovers up front as well as 2-inch diameter smooth-body monotube shocks out back. A set of custom FOX shock-boots help protect the exposed shock shaft from rocks, sand or water while flying down the trails at speed.
The Roush F-150 also features an all-business off-road look thanks to a set of 20-inch satin black Mickey Thompson Roush simulated beadlock wheels that are wrapped in 305/55R20 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZP3 rubber. Roush also includes locking lug nuts with a key bag.
If you want to get your hands on the 2015 Roush F-150, the package starts at $10,600 above the base truck and features an industry-leading 3-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty.
