General Motors had a double ensemble – the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 business sedan to signal they still (marginally) care about passenger cars and the latest iteration of the GMC Acadia crossover SUV now returning to full-size duties to better fight rivals with three rows of seats.
And, of course, the icing on the cake was the updated 2024 Ford F-150, which arrived with mild styling upgrades (and excellent separation of trims), additional technology, and other incremental modifications. Still, no one knows just yet how much oomph the Blue Oval has given some of the powertrains – such as the new base 2.7-liter EcoBoost mill and especially the 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor R.
Speculation quickly arose regarding Ford's decision to beat the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX and its 702-horsepower rating – as the Blue Oval's supercharged V8 infamously stops at 'only' 700 ponies. Well, if you have already bought the fourteenth-gen F-150 because it was a compelling truck, even without the latest upgrades, no worries, there is still a solution to tower above the TRX.
So, in February, Roush introduced their supercharged 2023 F-150, which 'responsibly' jumped to 705 horsepower so that you could stealthily engage both the Raptor R and TRX when trying to stand out in a truck crowd. The "industry leader in top-of-the-line aftermarket superchargers, engines, and pre-titled performance vehicles" allowed 2021 to 2023 model year F-150 trucks to be equipped with their TVS R2650 (2.65-liter) supercharger kit – though only if they were of the 5.0-liter V8 variety and didn't come with the Pro Power Onboard (dual alternator setup) feature.
The cost was negligible compared to buying a fully-fledged F-150 Raptor R, as the kit retails for $8,649.99. Well, now you can boost your F-150 to 705 horsepower and still get the on-site work done or cater to all the appliances needed at the campsite. That's because Roush just announced the expansion of the supercharger kit for F-150 models equipped with the Pro Power Onboard system.
Even better, they offer the same figures - 705HP and 635 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 305HP over stock, plus the usual three-year or 36k-mile limited powertrain warranty. However, the pricing has gone up a bit – now the 2021-2023 Roush F-150 supercharger kit for Pro Power Onboard models costs $9,149.99, and there's free shipping when deliveries start in October.
