All-New 2019 Roush Raptor Lands With More Power, Fresh Looks

In the land of fast pickup trucks, the Ford Raptor stands tall among the very best. It’s powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 unit, producing 450 HP and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) of torque. That’s as much muscle as you had in the original 2002 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

While you could argue that 450 horses is plenty for a pickup truck, Roush has other ideas, that’s why they now offer a Performance Pac Engine Upgrade System, which adds a max-flow 3-inch exhaust, custom cold air intake kit and an ECU flash.

Roush’s package is claimed to boost the engine’s output, though the tuner has not yet announced final numbers, but says it will deliver “increased performance, throttle response and drivability.”

Other mods include the custom Performance Axle-Back exhaust system for a sportier note, 20-inch black wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich 35-inch All-Terrain tires, plus a bunch of aesthetic and utility improvements such as the Chase Rack with optional off-road lighting by Rigid, and a signature Roush graphics package with optional customization finishes.

Inside, there’s a custom gauge cluster, Roush headrest embroidery and a serialized console badge, just to remind the driver that they’re not inside any ordinary Ford F-150 Raptor, if there is such a thing.

“The 2019 Roush Raptor is our most capable off-road vehicle to date,” said Jack Roush Jr. “From ice and snow to the depths of the desert, this vehicle conquers the terrain with iconic Roush performance and design, especially now that it is available with our Performance Pac engine upgrades.”

Pricing for the 2019 Roush Raptor starts at $13,000 over factory MSRP.

*Correction: Roush contacted us and said the performance numbers announced in their initial release were not final and are still pending

    Given the sheer weight and size of the Raptor, it should’ve come with this much power direct from Ford. In fact, Im shocked there’s no higher performance version of this incredible truck either, something akin to the GT500 level Mustang.

    As someone who generally hates pickups, I love the Raptor. And I love the idea of this.
