A little more for a truck that is already a lot

Posted on

Roush Performance pulled the top of its 2021 Super Duty package on Thursday. The Super Duty highlights a range of cosmetic and off-road upgrades offered by the signature Ford tuner, racer and parts developer and is, like other packages offered by Roush. offered, a premium offering for buyers looking to get a little more out of their powerhouses.

The 2021 package is based on the Ford F-250 / F-350 Lariat Sport package with 6.7 L Power Stroke diesel V8. Functional upgrades include a DPF back (think cat back, but for diesels), upgraded front brakes, a Fox-developed suspension system, and 35-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires on custom 20-inch Roush wheels.

Cosmetically, the truck gets a Roush grille with dual LED light bars, matching fender flares with built-in accent lighting, Roush entry lighting, and plenty of custom badges / graphics and embroidery pretty much everywhere you look. It sounds busier than it actually is, and most decals look like they can be easily removed (Roush can even omit them if you ask nicely) for those who prefer a little more subtlety.

“We love to build high-performance Mustangs, but our customers also want more from their trucks,” said Jack Roush Jr. “The Super Duty is a strong platform to build on; we’ve added the ROUSH fit and finish our customers expect, along with performance upgrades that enhance the truck’s off-road capability.”

Roush also produces upgrade packages for the F-150 (including the Raptor) and Ranger, some with engine mods and some without. The 2020 F-150 SC, for example, is centered around a truck supercharger upgrade with the 5.0-liter “Coyote” V8 and has 650 horsepower – not quite as much as a Stage 3 or Jack Roush Edition Mustang, but still enough badass (and much more powerful than anything Ford is building … for now).

Unlike smaller tuners, Roush takes care of your build from start to finish, even offering a build-and-price tool on its website for curious browsers and serious buyers. The 2021 Super Duty Package will add at least $ 14,900 to the price of your new pickup; the leather seats (pictured here) and some other visual upgrades and accessories will cost you extra.
