2017 ROUSH RS Mustang
New to the 2017 model year, the car comes with two choices of wheels and tires: standard Mustang GT Performance Pack wheels and tires or optional ROUSH wheels and ultra-high performance tires designed to attack corners with a vengeance. Also new for this model year is the optional Low-Gloss Black Rear Decklid Spoiler.
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.
The ROUSH Stage 2 Mustang combines the raw power of Ford's 5.0L V8 engine with ROUSH styling and suspension to create the ultimate customizable Mustang. The 460-horsepower Stage 2 has been equipped with an aggressive body package, adding true race-inspired styling. Meanwhile, the upgraded ROUSH suspension is paired with ROUSH-designed wheels and Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires to add grip and curve corners like never before. The resulting combination boasts 1.07 lateral g's on the skidpad.
Each Stage 2 Mustang benefits from state-of-the-art suspension upgrades including adjustable height coilovers and ROUSH-tuned valving. The result is no-compromise ride quality to allow for record track performance and comfortable street driving. For serious handling enthusiasts, an optional fully-adjustable 3-way suspension offers jounce and rebound adjustment.
The 2017 ROUSH Stage 3 is truly the ultimate in American muscle. Jack Roush's vision shines through this perfect combination of raw power and meticulous handling and braking capabilities, providing the driver access to the robust attitude and performance of a race car while maintaining a comfortable and uniquely "ROUSH" driving experience.
The 2017 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is a state-of-the-art muscle car that combines world-class handling with Detroit-born grunt. Under the hood, the ROUSHcharged 5.0L V8 powerplant pumps out 670 horsepower courtesy of the ROUSH Performance R2300 TVS supercharger. That's more horsepower per liter than any other American OE muscle car on the market. It goes without saying that the RS3 is a force to be reckoned with on and off the track, and a ten-second quarter-mile elapsed time is a real possibility with a racing tire and an experienced driver behind the wheel.
The 2017 Stage 3 Mustang embodies the legacy of ROUSH Performance's racing heritage. Choose between a single adjustable coilover suspension that comes standard to take full advantage of the Mustang's independent rear suspension. For even more control over your ride, opt for the ROUSH TrakPak 3-way adjustable coilover suspension. The system has been custom-tuned by World Challenge professional driver Jack Roush Jr. to achieve a phenomenal 1.07g skid-pad performance.
