Roush fills the street truck void with a 600-horsepower Ford F-150

As OEM automakers stay busy making off-road-focused versions of their large pickup trucks, Roush is catering to high-performance street truck fans with its 600-horsepower F-150 SC. In addition to a supercharged engine, the SC features suspension upgrades and meaner exterior design touches.

For the F-150 SC, Roush begins with a stock Ford F-150 with the 5.0-liter V-8 engine. From there, Roush adds styling, suspension and power upgrades.

The Roush grille borrows styling inspiration from the SVT Raptor's, with big lettering and the implementation of clearance lights.

The entire package rides on 20-inch Roush wheels wrapped with Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ tires.

With an Eaton supercharged mounted on top of the V-8 engine, the Roush F-150 packs 600 horsepower and 557 pound-feet of torque.

In addition to the grille, Roush installs a new front bumper cover, fender flares with clearance lights and various graphics on the F-150 SC.

A 2-inch lift in front from the Fox suspension system levels out the ride height of the F-150 SC.

At wide-open throttle, the performance exhaust system sounds mean, and caught plenty of attention while we were out in public.

Roush is building 100 F-150 SCs a month, and is having no problems finding homes for all of them through its network of 400 US dealers.

As tested, my Roush F-150 SC rang in at $78,810, which is $56,210 for the base truck and $22,600 for the work Roush puts into it. Roush also includes a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.

Maybe the best thing about the F-150 SC is that it doesn't feel like a half-baked machine. Everything on the truck is tight, and all the Roush additions perform like they belong, which is something the company prides itself on, putting all of its components through extensive validation tests.
