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.
