Some cars are known for their image, drivetrain, and powertrain. Still, some vehicles are legacies in that their original model spurred many variants to restyle it. One of the best examples is the Ford Mustang, which has many third-party variants that enhance the original. However, one company proved that you could enhance a pickup truck the same as you would a performance car. In fact, Roush has one Ford F-150 variant that everyone must know: The F-150 Nitemare. Here’s what we know about the Roush Nitemare F-150 and why it deserves its hype.
One of the first things people will notice about Roush’s F-150 Nitemare is its style. The Nitemare outfits a 5.0L V8 F-150 with a completely new look. Roush upgrades the truck with a supercharger, lowering kit, new exhaust system, 22-inch black wheels, and new front grille. In fact, Roush adds to the appeal with accent lights, graphics, puddle lams, and new front bumper. Optional black-and-red leather seats give even more comfort and street flair. The 650-hp V8 engine also gives it incredible power. You can choose seven different body colors for the 2020 Nitemare including red, white, blue, black, and gray.
It’s Outperforms Any Competition
As previously mentioned, the Nitemare’s performance is not something to shy at. With 650 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque, the pickup truck can reach 60 mph speeds in just 3.9 seconds. A new exhaust system supplies increased cold air to maintain this optimal engine performance. New 22-inch black wheels and performance tires ensure smooth but precise handling. Even the lowering kits allows for greater weight distribution and reduced body roll.
Finally, the last thing to know about the Roush Nitemare is that it’s versatile. The 2020 Nitemare features an off-road suspension system to battle harsh terrain and obstacles. This complements the adjustable exhaust system, which you can set to sport, touring, or off-road settings, depending on your drive. Not to mention, the customizable graphics package allows you to decorate your truck however you want. While some drivers may opt for the American flag decal, you can substitute it for the blackout or Roush decal instead. Roush also offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty if you’re dissatisfied.
While the Roush Nitemare already features many amazing design and performance changes from the standard F-150, you can still do more to it.
