2021 Roush F-150 offers increased truck performance for a pretty penny
The 2021 Ford F-150 is now available at dealerships nationwide. The F-150 Raptor is coming soon. If you want to take your performance to the next level, you'll soon be able to get your hands on the wheel of the 2021 Roush F-150, for a price.
The new truck is a product of the company's racing chops, both on- and off-road. It builds on the 2021 F-150 architecture and enhances its with Roust-engineered body components, a high-performance suspensions, upgraded wheels and tires, and a cat-back dual-tip exhaust system.

Each model is based on four-wheel-drive XLT Sport and Lariat models and equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 engine.
Additional enhancements include a custom-valved set of Roush/Fox 2.0 shocks. They're equipped with internal floating pistons to provide a smooth and controlled ride in the dirt or on the pavement. Roush says that the front coiler shocks are "outfitted with tuned performance springs that lift the front end two inches" resulting in a level stance for the truck.
Buyers can add a ROUSH Performance brake package to the model that features six-piston Alcon front brakes with upgraded 13.7-inch rotors and high-friction pads and a Roush active control exhaust system, which uses integrated electronic valves to allow the driver to quickly switch between exhaust modes via a console-mounted switch. An Extreme Off-Road Upgrade will be available later this year that will include suspension and tire upgrades for even greater off-road performance.
There's also Roush wide-body fender flares with integrated accent lights and vents. Below, the F-150 rides on General Tire 33-inch Grabber A/TX tires that are wrapped around 20-inch gray ROUSH wheels.

But that's not all. The interior gets upgraded as well (and it's already quite plush). The features list includes Roush gauge cluster, serialized badging, custom pedals with rubberized grips for secure foot control and custom Roush floor liners by WeatherTech, as standard.
Buyers can upgrade further to include premium leather seating and the Ready Package, which includes a steel center console vault with a four-digit combo lock and the off-road utility kit that holds a host of trail recovery tools.
"The all-new F-150 has been a highly anticipated project for us," said Jack Roush Jr. "While our roots are in high-performance Mustangs, we've taken that knowledge and our racing prowess and applied to the all-new 2021 F-150. From the six-piston Alcon brakes to the ROUSH/Fox performance suspension, our modifications are engineered to provide unmatched performance, quality, and durability."
