Roush Performance have announced the Performance Pac Level 1 for the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger. With it brings power upgrades of 47 hp and 65 lb-ft of torque over stock, bringing the grand total to 317 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. All for just $935 USD. This is just a little more output than the similar Ford Performance calibration that’s available for the Ranger for $825.
The Roush Performance Pac Level 1 for the Ford Ranger achieves its improved performance by not only re-calibrating the engine, but also improving its airflow via a washable and reusable performance air filter. This is also supplemented by a cold air intake kit, which maintains factory water fording capability. The pedal and boost mapping are also recalibrated to properly deliver the sensations of increased horsepower, torque, and throttle response throughout the RPM range. The system runs on premium fuel, and is 50-state emissions legal (for now).
Should something go wrong, the Performance Pac kit comes included with a 3-year/36,000 mile limited Roush powertrain warranty.
Over the summer, Roush Performance also announced a special Ford Ranger package all its own. It features a Fox 2.0 Performance Suspension System co-developed with Roush, General Tire 32-inch Grabber ATX tires, Roush 18-inch satin black wheels, a leveling kit, suspension tuning, and a dual-tip performance cat-back exhaust system. Separating it from common Rangers from a visual standpoint is a signature “ROUSH” grille with dual LED light bars and Magnetic Gray painted Fender Flares with integrated accent lighting. On the side there’s custom fender vent badging, “ROUSH” graphics around the vehicle, and “ROUSH” puddle lamps. The package is priced at $12,750 on top of the standard Ford Ranger required to build it from. The configurator is loaded with options, too, such as a $3,200 sport bar with lights, various body graphics, storage vaults, and an off-road utility kit.
The Roush Ranger was didn’t come with this new EcoBoost performance engine calibration. But for those looking to build a Ranger worth bragging about, adding the power upgrade seems like a no brainer.
