2017 Roush F-150 Nitemare Features A 5.0-Liter V-8 With 600 HP

Ford’s new generation Raptor may become one of the best pickup trucks in the segment. It’s handsome, useful and pretty efficient. However, it comes without a V8 engine, which is a nightmare for a lot of fans. Well, there is a solution, because there will be something more powerful from the current 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 that makes 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft. It isn’t completely Ford’s, yet the 2017 Roush F-150 Nitemare definitely impressed everyone at last week’s 2016 SEMA show.

If you didn’t know, Rush is Ford’s tuner, and this isn’t the first time they made such a vehicle. Back in 2007, Rush introduced the F-150 pickup with a 5.4L engine that produced 445hp and 500lb-ft. this time however, they unveiled the 2017 F-150 Nitemare with something even more impressive. The pickup truck features a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, which is capable to deliver a whopping output of 600 hp and 557 lb-ft of torque. According to the tuner, the amazing vehicle will be able to speed up to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. You will be able to choose between t two- or four-wheel drive, and to add some pretty cool off-road kit, which includes full Fox suspension system at the corners, and upgraded springs and shock.

Except of the impressive engine, the 2017 Roush F-150 Nitemare gets some styling changes inside and out. The bodywork is boosted with some handsome graphics on the hood and flanks, and Rush 20-inch wheels. In addition, the truck sports Roush’s side-exit exhaust, as well as a bit restyled grille and bumpers. The cab is on the other hand pretty much the same. There are just special badges and an available leather upgrade of course.
