Roush announces kit for 2021 Ford Bronco

Roush just released a new kit for the 2021 Ford Bronco.

Roush

Roush has a long and impressive history of modifying Ford vehicles, so it was only a matter of time before parts started rolling out for the new Bronco SUV. Today, Roush announced a new 2021 Ford Bronco R Series kit that will be available starting December 23.

Roush's kit comes with a Roush Performance Air Induction and Axle-Back Exhaust system, which together provide a 30 percent improvement in airflow over the factory setup. The upgrades do not compromise the Bronco's water fording capabilities, improves ground clearance, and gives the SUV a more aggressive sound. The kit also adds 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires are recommended.

The Roush Bronco R Series Kit brings an exclusive graphics package that includes hood decals, a windshield banner, American flag decals, Roush badging, and a Roush "R" trailer hitch cover. Four-door Bronco models add a Jack Roush signature decal and body-side graphics. Inside, Roush adds a floor protection kit that includes full floor liners and an off-road recovery kit with a weather-proof storage case, recovery straps, and more.

There's a Roush kit for any trim level of the 2021 Ford Bronco, including two- and four-door models, and either the four- or six-cylinder engine. The kit isn't 50-state emissions compliant, so if you live in a CARB state, you're out of luck. You can order the kit and have it installed at a Roush authorized dealer or you can order the parts and do the work at home. Either way, the kit will set you back $6,750 .

Off-road performance truck

Shelby American announces new Ford F-150 Raptor

Shelby just announced the new truck, which has a starting price of more than $124,000.

The third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor is a true off-road menace, with a strong turbocharged V6, beefy tires and shocks, and a luxury-level interior. Most people would consider the truck overkill for all but the hardest-core off-road enthusiasts, but the wizards at Shelby American have other ideas. As it has done with Ford vehicles for years, Shelby gave the new Raptor a performance makeover, and the finished product is quite impressive.

The F-150 Raptor is already a capable beast, but Shelby turns things up a few notches. Performance upgrades include a performance intake and high-flow filter, an aluminum intercooler, a tune that pushes power to more than 525 ponies and 610 pound-feet of torque, a Shelby exhaust, and a BDS lift kit. The Shelby Raptor rides on 18-inch wheels with 37-inch BFG KM3 Mud Terrain tires.

If you’re thinking Shelby slaps a few go-fast parts on the Raptor and calls it good, think again. The truck’s interior features embroidered custom leather upholstery and exclusive floor mats. A unique serial number plate is mounted in the dash. Shelby also fits billet racing pedals, carbon fiber accents, and deep tinted windows.

Outside, the Raptor gest several touches to let everyone know it’s not a standard Ford. A special Shelby hood with intake and extraction vents is standard, along with power side steps with rock sliders. A bevy of Shelby logos and badging grace the truck’s body, and both bumpers have been replaced with steel units to accommodate light bars and additional tow points.

If you’re hoping to be one of the insane few to own a Shelby Raptor, get your wallet ready. The truck’s base price starts at $124,820, which includes the MSRP of the truck itself. That said, it’s unclear how extreme demand and supply chain issues will impact Shelby’s ability to get new trucks to modify.

If you're reading this and thinking it sounds like a blast - you're right. There's a catch, however, which comes in the form of an intense consideration process that culminates in a racing event with a pro driver on a closed course. A panel of judges will evaluate the video entries, and wrestler Bill Goldberg will oversee the race between the top ten finalists. Dodge says the series of eliminations will air like a reality TV show, with the winner being revealed in the final episode.

Today is the opening day of the application period. You have until February 28 to submit your short video, which can be a maximum of two minutes. Get busy making your video and head here to submit it before the deadline.
