ROUSH PERFORMANCE unleashed its 2019 Ford F-150 Nitemare on a drag strip, with the 650hp (485kW) ute – in regular cab two-door guise – reaching 60mph in 3.9 seconds. In addition, the ROUSH Nitemare four-door Supercrew took 4.1 seconds to get from 0 to 60mph.
“This makes these trucks the quickest production trucks ever made,” Jack Roush Jr says in the video posted to ROUSH Performance’s YouTube channel.
The ROUSH F-150 Nitemare is powered by Ford’s Ti-VCT V8 engine, with a ROUSH TVS R2650 supercharger system extracting 650hp (485kW) and 610lb-ft of torque (827Nm).
A ROUSH Performance Exhaust System adds aural bite to the package, while an optional ROUSH Active Exhaust System that utilises ROUSH Performance Valve Technology can be fitted for additional venom.
“It’s one thing just to add power … raw power to a vehicle,” Roush Jr adds in the clip. “It’s another thing to truly engineer it where it’s gonna last, it’s gonna drive well, and it’s really gonna perform at its peak.”
4x4 review: Tickford F-150
The Nitemare rides on 22-inch ROUSH wheels wrapped in Continental Crosscontact LX20 285/45 R22 rubber. Body modifications include a custom grille with integrated accent lighting, a front bumper cover designed to work in tandem with Ford’s adaptive cruise control, and an assortment of ROUSH graphics on the body work.
The speed test took place at Milan Dragway in Michigan, USA.
