Winter has (thankfully) ended - but the snow still lingers in Michigan, with the roads wet and wild. What better location, therefore, for the ROUSH team to take their 2018 Raptor for a final seasonal spin?
ROUSH recently made its way to the backroads of Michigan, where the Great Lakes Raptor Excursion (GLRE) was held on January 18th. This annual event celebrates V8 performance, urging drivers to conquer the Upper Peninsula and push the boundaries of all-terrain functionality. Dubbed the Snoball Rally, it offers a treacherous course of ice, sleet, and thick powder; and its frozen miles have undermined even the best engine suites.
The 2018 Raptor proved ready for the challenge, however. Watch below as ROUSH pits its supercharged pick-up against the perils of the GLRE.
The ROUSH Raptor dominated the Snoball Rally challenge - with its custom-tuned suspension and position-sensing dampers yielding a refined ride. Off-road tires shredded the ice, while bead rings delivered winter protection. FOX shocks lessened the impact of every rut, and externally-adjustable circuits afforded exceptional rebound control. This truck was ready for the GLRE… and it never once became stuck in the slush!

Power no longer belongs to the circuit scene. Instead the half-ton market delivers premium performance - with ROUSH unveiling its Phase One Supercharger to F-150 fans. This potent kit will redefine every mile, connecting drivers to unprecedented responses. Rev on, Vancouver.
According to HotRod.com, the 2018 F-150 will soon receive a ROUSH upgrade. Drivers wishing to expand their performance capabilities can choose an easy bolt-on kit - the Phase One Supercharger. This option delivers enhanced power, proving compatible with the 5.0L V8. Through its painstaking design (which is anchored by the Eaton Twin Vortices Series module, an exclusive rotary motor that increases the combustion sequence), this system yields 650 HP and 610 lb.-ft of torque; and positive-displacement technology promises a true open-throttle experience, upgrading each lobe turn to 170-degrees.
This, the Hot Rod team explains, provides a total power-band increase - with the F-150’s engine enhanced by more than 20%. To maintain this rush of torque, the Phase One Supercharger also boasts advanced cooling hoses and intake valves, creating a seamless burst of air to reduce heat generation. A ROUSH calibration unit further stabilizes the V8, ensuring that performance remains steady via real-time metrics monitoring.

High-performance is getting an upgrade - with ROUSH revealing an exclusive Muffler Delete Kit for the 2018 F-150. This aftermarket option will ensure top-tier responses with every rev, fusing Ford’s venerable pick-up with both increased air flow and aggressive sound.
With the release of the Muffler Delete Kit, ROUSH seeks to deliver a true off-road experience - bolstering the 2018 F-150 with a new exhaust. Comprised of stainless steel, this system can endure even the roughest roads. It’s been CAD- engineered to ensure a seamless fit, and its bolt-on design remains sturdy in all conditions. This promotes superior performance with every mile, enabling drivers to maximize their HP ratios (without fretting over weak add-ons).
When attached to the F-150, the Muffler Delete Kit delivers enhanced capability - utilizing a precisely bent mandrel pipe to draw in greater levels of air. Overall intake is increased by more than 10% and this allows the truck to reach its 5,000 RPM redline with ease. Experience increased acceleration times, with the engine blitzing from 0 to 60 in less than five seconds; and feel the rumble of each rev, courtesy of ROUSH’s integrated Active Exhaust technology (which raises decibels to deliver a track-worthy growl on any backroad).
The Muffler Delete Kit proves a perfect option for Vancouver adventurers - allowing them to roar down every mile. To learn more about this system contact our team today!
True performance is neither mild nor meek. Instead it roars down the highway - forcing drivers to stare and lines of traffic to part. This is the philosophy that defines the 2018 F-150, with ROUSH fusing this pick-up with a pavement-shattering sound.
Are you ready for Active Exhaust technology?
ROUSH recently revealed its latest F-150 creation - and this one promises to decimate both the competition and its predecessors alike. Anchored by the Active Exhaust system (an exclusive tuning technology that controls pitch and volume), this truck proves an audible powerhouse. A high-flow muffler sits at the rear, controlling every air release; while a full mandrel-bent pipe connects directly to the engine, channeling each rev with precision. OEM hangers and mounting points fit seamlessly against the chassis, maintaining the Ford warranty; and dual four-inch stainless steel tips pump out an aggressive tone.
The purpose of the Active Exhaust system is to provide drivers with complete control over the truck’s output. Inside the cabin a console will offer push-button convenience - allowing for seamless operation of the muffler (select Open or Close to engage the module and achieve a road-shaking sound). This custom mode proves perfect for track testing, and it maximizes every rev of the 5.0L V8.

Baja performance is receiving an all-terrain upgrade - with ROUSH no longer content to watch Dodge, Chevrolet, and Toyota rev across the dunes. Instead the aftermarket specialist is partnering with Ford for next-level power. Prepare for the 2018 F-150!
According to CarsZNet, ROUSH will soon reveal its latest F-Series variant. This pick-up - which has already entered production - should propel the mid-size market to new heights, delivering a series of powertrain enhancements. Off-road enthusiasts can now expect:
A Modified Radiator Grille - to disperse wind and sand, ensuring a more aerodynamic ride.
Extended Wheel Arches - to more efficiently accommodate the 20-inch Mickey Thompson ATZ tires.
A Side-Output Exhaust System - to increase overall engine responses and improve combustion control.
A New Front Bumper - to better stabilize the fascia and reduce drag.
A FOX Suspension System - to strengthen all-terrain performance and reduce interior vibrations.
Through these changes, the 2018 ROUSH F-150 will be an undeniable force on the back-roads - making it the perfect addition to next year’s Baja season!
