While we knew late last year that Roush Performance was working on a high performance package for the 2015-2016 Ford F150, it wasn’t until earlier this year that we got the details on the Roush F150. We learned that it was not approved for the 11 CARB states, but for those who aren’t bridled with the miserable California emission standards, the Roush-supercharged F150 offers 600 horsepower and 557lb-ft of torque.
Evidently, that isn’t enough for some of the Roush customers, as the tuning company is reportedly working on a Phase 2 package that lifts the output to 650 horsepower and 600lb-ft of torque.
The Roush F150
For those who missed our first piece on the new Roush high performance package for the new Ford F150, here is a quick rundown. On the outside, it features a unique Roush grille, a new front bumper, satin black fender flares, 20 inch wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson tires and plenty of graphics from front to rear.
More importantly, the Roush F150 features a Fox high performance off-road suspension system,a new exhaust system and a Roush TVS2300 supercharger- which lifts the output of the 5.0L V8 from 385hp and 387lb-ft of torque to 600hp and 557lb-ft of torque. At least, that is what the Roush Phase 1 package offers. Click here for a closer look at the details of the Roush F150.
According to the crew at BoldRide.com, Roush is working on a Phase 2 package that will lift the output even further, offering a total of 650 horsepower and 600lb-ft of torque. There are no further details, but this extra power could come from something as simple as a revised engine tune and more boost from the supercharger, or it could entail a more elaborate engine build. In any case, with the Roush Phase 1 package failing to comply with the CARB laws at 600hp, I would imagine that the 650hp package also won’t be permitted in California and the rest of the anti-performance car states.
The Roush Phase 1 package for the new F150 costs $22,600 and while there is no price for the Phase 2 package, the price shouldn’t be a great deal higher, unless it does indeed include more engine components.
Should more information become available, you will find it here on TorqueNews.com, but for those folks who love the new F150 and who don’t want to wait for the upcoming Raptor F150, this is a great option with serious power.
