Roush Unveils 445 Horsepower Stage 3 F-150

ROUSH UNLEASHES MONSTER 445 HORSEPOWER STAGE 3 F-150; WOMEN AND CHILDREN FRIGHTENED NATIONWIDE

LIVONIA, Mich. (April 17, 2006) - There are trucks, and then there are
trucks - and the new ROUSH Stage 3 version of the Ford F-150 certainly
ranks among the highest predators on the truck food chain.

Now in production and available at dealers nationwide, the ROUSH Stage 3
F-150 flies down the road thanks to the 445 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of
torque generated by the addition of a ROUSHcharger* system. This is a
substantial increase in power and performance over the 300 horsepower
and 365 lb-ft of torque that is generated from the stock Ford factory
5.4L, 3-valve engine, and the entire truck, including the ROUSHcharger*
is covered by ROUSH's industry-leading 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

This vehicle was designed by the same engineers that have helped Jack
Roush win 34 racing championships, including a pair at the elite NASCAR
Nextel Cup level. The intercooled ROUSHcharger* includes a custom
calibration which optimizes engine performance and transmission shift
points.

But the ROUSH Stage 3 F-150 is more than just engine. This package also
includes the styling and body kit enhancements of the Stage 1 version,
and the suspension upgrades that are incorporated into the Stage 2
version of the truck.

The tuned sport suspension system under the Stage 3 offers a balance
between comfort and handling capability, without significant reduction
in payload capacity. These engineered and tuned components include
specially valved front and rear shock absorbers, increased rate rear
leaf springs, front coil springs, and a large diameter solid front sway
bar.

The ROUSH Stage 3 F-150 also comes with custom 20-inch rims and tires,
both from the new line of ROUSH Performance wheels. Some of the exterior
styling additions include a front chin spoiler, hood scoop with carbon
fiber design insert, and the optional side skirts with dual side outlet
exhaust tips, wheel flares and tailgate spoiler.

Other amenities include specially-designed instrument clusters, custom
leather seats, billet aluminum grille and pedals, embroidered floor mats
and much more. Of course, each ROUSH vehicle comes with an individual
serial plate indicating that it was hand built by specially-trained
ROUSH technicians at their Livonia, Mich., facility.

"There was no component on this truck that the ROUSH engineers
overlooked. They went over the F-150 from top to bottom and changed any
of the components that would help the performance or handling of the
vehicle, all while keeping the rugged styling that ROUSH has become
known for," said Joe Thompson, general manager of ROUSH Performance
Products.

Other options available for the ROUSH Stage 3 F-150 include dash trim
kits, locking lug nuts, and striping packages. Still available are the
Stage 1 and Stage 2 versions of the ROUSH F-150 for drivers wanting
elements of the package, but not the complete ROUSHcharged truck.

Hey mike thats alot of hp but i want to point out also that the dodge pickup truck that has the viper engine has 500 hp seems like they would make a truck that would have 500 or more hp to compete with that truck just my 2 cents.

I agree. I wish Ford would come out with another lightning already, but with the way things are going with SVT who knows if we'll ever get to see another one.

So do you know what the price on this truck is going to be and when it is expected to come out and is this just a concept or is that what the actual truck will look like?

Alright, they got back to me already. There are no set prices for the 2007 models yet, but below are the prices for the 2006 F-150's. I was told that the '07 models may be bit higher, and that these are just base prices. There are a number of other options that can be tacked onto the F-150 through Roush that will obviously raise the price.

Stage 1 - $40,015
Stage 2 - $43,915
Stage 3 - $48,080
