"BETWEEN A ROAD CAR AND A RACE CAR IS A ROUSH CAR..."
The ROUSH Stage 1 Mustang combines ROUSH styling and Ford's refined 2.3L EcoBoost engine in a streamlined performance package. Ford has refreshed its 2.3L EcoBoost for 2018, and the boost in power led ROUSH to make changes specific to body and chassis tuning to create the ultimate lightweight Mustang. The turbocharged 4-cylinder Mustang produces an impressive 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, and ROUSH body components add race-inspired styling.
Available options including ROUSH wheels and suspension upgrades allow the driver to tune the Stage 1 to achieve 1.07g skid pad performance ratings. A high-performance exhaust system is standard on the Stage 1 Mustang, and offers reduced back pressure and increased sound presence, delivered through a stainless steel system. Coated satin black tips are new for 2018.
A chin spoiler has been designed and installed with maximum downforce grip in mind, while corner ducts lend to the fascia's aesthetic value. Functional hood heat extractors also contribute to engine cooling.
An all-new graphics package is standard on the Stage 1 Mustang, and features classic design inspiration, and the ability to customize with a variety of color options. Additional graphics are optional, including a new Top Performance stripe with coordinated accent striping.
