PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, MI – July 8, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The entire lineup of 2017 model year ROUSH Mustangs is now available for order from authorized ROUSH Performance dealerships across the United States. Delivering raw power, looks and legacy, ROUSH Performance engineers American-made vehicles that passionate drivers crave.
Each 2017 Mustang is equipped with the standard striking R7 Aero Body Component Package featuring a front fascia with aero pockets; high-flow upper grille with “RS” or “Stage” badge; high-flow lower opening; front chin splitter; and performance lamps. The package also includes an optional hood scoop, body side scoop, fender badges, side rocker aero aids, a rear blackout panel with “ROUSH” badging, and a rear decklid spoiler (available on fastback Mustangs only).
New for 2017, ROUSH Performance has redesigned optional side graphics for RS, Stage 1 and Stage 2 Mustangs. Other options across the board include a hood graphic, low-gloss black rear decklid spoiler (requires matte black hood and side graphic options), 20-inch polished wheels, billet performance pedals, leather seating options (Recaro seats optional in Stage 1 or Stage 2 applications), and hood strut lift assist, among others.
The 2017 ROUSH Mustang RS, with an MSRP of less than $30,000, is built from a Ford Mustang equipped with a 300HP 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine, and now features 19×9 Black GT Performance Pack Wheels as a standard offering. Additional optional features include Ford Leather Seating with embroidered “RS” Head Rests, 20-inch Quicksilver Wheels wrapped in Ultra High Performance Cooper Tires, and a dealer-installed Dual V6 Performance Exhaust System.
The 2017 ROUSH Stage 1 Mustang, based on the 310HP 2.3L EcoBoost Mustang, boasts additional standard features, including a ROUSH Dual-Tip Performance Exhaust System and “RS1” Strut Tower Brace. Stage 1 owners can choose to upgrade to a Quad-Tip Exhaust or take it a step further and include the ROUSH Active Exhaust – an option that provides drivers with four selectable modes to tune their exhaust sound. Active Exhaust offers pre-loaded and custom modes that allows drivers to program a sound map from their Apple iPhone or iPad, offering virtually endless sound possibilities based on lifestyle and circumstance.
The 2017 ROUSH Stage 2 Mustang is powered by a 5.0L V8 engine, producing 435HP and offers a standard single-adjustable coil over suspension system. For those craving solid handling in the turns, the TrakPak three-way adjustable coil-over suspension is an option that has been custom-tuned by World Challenge professional driver Jack Roush Jr. to achieve a phenomenal 1.07g skid-pad performance. Additional options include the aforementioned innovative ROUSH Active Exhaust System, new red ROUSH engine coil covers with black detailing, extreme-duty half shafts, and a reverse-sensing custom fitting.
