The 2014 ROUSH® Stage 2 delivers stylish performance with corner carving attitude. Elegantly blending muscular styling with a race inspired suspension to create a Ford Mustang that is as confident on the track as it is on the streets. At the core of the Stage 2 Mustang is the ROUSH sport-tuned suspension system, 18” chrome wheels with ultra high performance Cooper RS3 tires and the unique ROUSH aero body kit. Combined with a list of options ranging from 20" wheels to a Rear Seat Delete with "X"-Brace, this Mustang is sure to stand out from the rest of the crowd.
The ROUSH Stage 2 styling components include the sixth generation body kit, referred to as the "R6" aero body package. The R6 aero body package starts at the front of the car with the ROUSH designed upper grille, high-flow lower opening (grille eliminator), corner fascia aero pockets with driving lamps and front chin splitter. Moving towards the back are the ROUSH rocker panel and rear fascia side splitters to give the car an aggressive, low stance. The rear of the car showcases the ROUSH three-piece rear decklid spoiler giving the car a sleek look without obstructing the view out the rear window. Rounding out the tail end is the new ROUSH rear aero valance featuring race-inspired diffusers made to seamlessly fit the ROUSH’s dual chambered, chrome exhaust tips.
The Stage 2 Mustang race inspired suspension compliments the 420hp 5.0L coyote engine. Enhancements include a larger, stiffer front stabilizer bar to reduce body roll and provide balanced, neutral handling. It also includes twin-tube shocks with unique valving to keep maximum tire contact patch on the ground, even while driving on uneven terrain. The springs have an increased rate as well and are pre-set so they won’t sag. In addition, particular attention was paid to the bushings for more compliance over low speed bumps and the jounce bumpers which are designed to act as a spring assist. The last part of the ROUSH handling package includes 18-inch by 10-inch, cast aluminum, five-spoke wheels wrapped in super sticky, Cooper RS3 ultra high-performance summer tires that were co-developed by Cooper Tire and ROUSH Performance.
Interior branding touches on the Stage 2 contain ROUSH embroidered floor mats, a ROUSH center console button, a Stage 2 dash medallion, Jack Roush signature graphic on the dash and an under the hood is a serialized Stage 2 plaque.
Exterior identifiers include a ROUSH front windshield banner, Stage 2 badge in the upper grille, ROUSH "R" fender badges, rear decklid Stage 2 badge, rear faux gas cap "R" badge and finished off with a Jack Roush signature graphic on the decklid.
