The 2011 ROUSH® Stage 2™ Mustang is designed to turn that daily commute into a slalom course by greatly improving the handling characteristics of the base chassis. The ROUSH chassis engineering team has driven tens of thousands of miles on the streets and racetracks to create the optimum blend of comfort and handling. A ROUSH wheel hop reduction kit will be included with all vehicles that have the upgraded ROUSH suspension package installed at the factory.
Just like in years past, the 2011 ROUSH Stage 2 Mustang also includes an appearance package which is comprised of several components such as a new front fascia and front splitter, rear fascia, side splitters, and a three-piece rear wing.
The new rear fascia is a one-piece design which improves the fit and finish; the part is injection-molded by ROUSH Manufacturing in an OEM-level TPO plastic which, in the black color with decorative grain, will help reduce rock chips. The vehicle rides on 18-inch cast chrome wheels with high-performance Cooper Zeon tires, with a 20-inch cast chrome wheel as an available option.
The heart of the 2011 ROUSH Stage 2 Mustang is the all-new Ford 5.0L, V-8 engine. Nicknamed "Coyote" during the development phase, this powerplant generates 412 horsepower (and 390 lb.-ft. of torque), yet still can obtain 26 MPG on the highway. Employing twin independent variable camshaft timing (TiVCT) and cold air induction, the new 2011 Mustang engines deliver more power, greater off-the-line low-end torque – and increased fuel efficiency. There’s no such thing as compromise for these ponies.
