If we are to talk about matters of speed, a pickup truck is not really a likely candidate. These type of vehicles are designed as workhorses that can pull a lot of weight. Therefore, excuse us if we find it hard to believe that one can possibly outperform the competition when it comes to being the quickest. However, we are clearly forgetting the fact that a beast such as the 2019 ROUSH F-150 NITEMARE exists. Don’t take it likely because this machine will apparently eat supercars for breakfast without breaking a sweat.
What makes this insane feat possible is the top-tier tuning that the shop offers. They’re taking Ford’s reliable 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine and slapping on a ROUSH TVS R2650 supercharger system. This upgrade awakens the dormant potential to push it beyond what is expected. You’re looking at a 650-horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque ride that is ready to race. Tests show that this 4×4 can manage a 0-60 mph run in less than four seconds.
In the meantime, to make sure that everyone around you notices the difference, the brand’s performance exhaust system produces a powerful rumble that announces its arrival. The racing inspiration does not stop there, because the 2019 ROUSH F-150 NITEMARE dresses the part. One look at its exterior details should tell you that it craves speed. Tweaks such as a custom grille, sporty graphics, a new bumper cover, and much more are part of the package. Likewise, we can see that the pickup truck is sitting on a set of 22-inch ROUSH wheels with Continental Crosscontact tires.
