Roush Performance is no stranger to the Ford Raptor. The engine and tuning specialist unveiled its most recent creation last week, a very mean-looking and very fast modified Ford Raptor.

Based on the current-generation F-150 Raptor, the 2019 Roush Raptor.

The stock wheels are replaced by 20-inch black wheels with 35-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires, the overall design is made more agressive by a massive body kit, and the base 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine can be paired with a new axle-back exhaust system for a sound that matches the agressive looks of the Roush Ford Raptor.

Roush plans to add what it calls the “Performance Pac” to the options list which would include a 3.0-inch exhaust, a cold air intake, and a new ECU.

What hasn’t changed this modified Ford Raptor are the standard Fox shocks and overall suspension setup. The Roush kit adds roughly $13,000 to the price of the Raptor.
