Need a 650-HP Ford F-150? Roush Has Two Options for 2019

Meet the F-150 SC and the Nitemare.

Life can be tough sometimes. For example, let's say you love the Ford F-150 but need it to make 650 horsepower. What do you do? The F-150 Raptor's twin-turbo V-6 only cranks out 450 horses, and the 5.0-liter V-8 is even less potent. Thankfully, longtime Ford tuner Roush has your solution. Well, two solutions, actually.

The first is the 2019 F-150 SC. It starts with the 5.0-liter V-8 but adds a supercharger system that brings output up to 650 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque. Roush then adds a four-mode side-exit performance exhaust that you can control with a switch on the center console or via a phone app. You also get an upgraded suspension that includes a two-inch front leveling kit and improves suspension travel. Finally, 20-inch black wheels, a new grille, fender flares, and a few other Roush-specific touches are fitted. If you want, you can also add a leather seating package and an off-road kit.

Your second choice is the 2019 Roush Nitemare. Like the SC, the Nitemare uses a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 good for 650 ponies and 610 lb-ft, as well as Roush's four-mode active exhaust. But instead of 20-inch wheels, the more street-oriented Nitemare rides on 22s. It's also been lowered and given a new grille and bumper, and a unique graphics package. Interior upgrades and options are similar to what you get on the SC, although you can add a soft tonneau cover, an active cat-back exhaust, a lockable center console, and an off-road kit.

It doesn't appear that pricing has been released yet, but if you're interested, head over to Roush's website for more info.
