2016 Roush Ford F-150 SC: A master on both sand and pavement

Roush, best known for building faster turnkey Ford Mustangs and performance parts, has tinkered with F-150s for a while now. As with the Mustang, Roush uses a familiar blueprint to upgrade the F-150 with styling, suspension and power upgrades. With the F-150 SC, Roush has built a 600 horsepower performance truck that's capable both on- and off-road.

The Roush F-150 SC is more than capable of getting to the top of Test Hill. The big question was about the person behind the wheel.

More aggressive styling comes courtesy of a Roush grille with clearance lighting, bumper cover and fender flares.

The Fox performance suspension raises front ride height by 2-inches for additional clearance, and gives the truck a leveled stance.

If people don't notice the SC's styling, they'll certainly hear its thunderous exhaust note from the standard performance exhaust system.

The blacked-out front grille with clearance lights was styled after the grille from the SVT Raptor.
