Roush Performance recently released photos of its first Roush F-250 built on the all-new aluminum 2018 Ford F-250.
Roush reports that it’s taken the most popular F-250 modifications and made them work together with a pre-titled FMVSS level of certification for safety and handling. The Super Duty pickup gets Roush modifications to its body, interior, suspension and wheels and tires.
One of the more standout features is Roush’s new F-250 grille, which provides more airflow for the engine while integrated clearance lighting showcases an aggressive front bumper cover.
A Roush/Fox 2.0 shock upgrade offers suspension leveling at 1.5-inches, and allows for larger ROUSH 20-inch wheels and BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain 35.3-inch tires. The wheels feature integrated bead protection, with black and grey rings provided. Body color-matched fender flares with integrated clearance lighting, a Roush graphics package, and interior treatments complete the transformation.
The Roush F-250 maintains Ford’s capabilities in towing and payload. Modifications are designed to work together and are backed by a warranty.
“Each component on the Roush F-250 was selected to maintain OE capabilities, right down to the lug nuts,” Roush reports on its blog. “For example, typical aftermarket wheels utilize a conical style lug nut, which lacks the same clamping load as a washer-style lug nut with flat load bearing surfaces. While conical lug nuts are cheaper, ROUSH follows Ford in featuring washer-style lug nuts to ensure safety and OE capabilities.”
The 2018 Roush F-250 will be available with Ford’s diesel powertrain. It will be sold exclusively through Roush vehicle dealers located throughout the U.S. and internationally. Vehicle order banks are open now.
“The Roush Super Duty has been built to ensure that whether you are hauling materials to a job site, a race car to the track, or ATVs to the dunes, you’ll enjoy the ride, and turn heads along the way,” Roush states on its blog.
