ROUSH, located in Livonia, Michigan, USA, was founded by American motorsports legend, Jack Roush, 40 years ago with the goal of combining automotive manufacturing design, engineering prowess, and unsurpassed quality.
Roush’s mission was to create a vehicle which fused together street car and race car qualities. The outcome was the ROUSH Mustang. All it takes is a few minutes behind the wheel to realize Jack Roush has his finger on the pulse of automotive performance. ROUSH Mustangs incorporate competitive track abilities with a striking silhouette in a fully-warrantied package, which is assembled in the USA.
The ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is a state-of-the-art muscle car that unites world-class handling and styling with a true Detroit muscle pedigree. Under the hood, the ROUSHcharged 5.0L V8 power plant pumps out 670 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque courtesy of the ROUSH Performance 2300 TVS supercharger. Contributing to the RS3’s exceptional performance is an optional ROUSH TrakPak 3-Way Coilover Suspension System, custom-tuned by World Challenge professional driver Jack Roush Jr. This incredible combination achieves a tremendous 1.07g skid-pad performance, rivaling supercar capabilities. The RS3 is a force to be reckoned with on and off the track, and a ten-second quarter-mile is highly achievable with a proper racing tire and an experienced driver behind the wheel.
ROUSH Mustangs also feature an optional innovative ROUSH Active Performance Exhaust System. This patented, game-changing exhaust system gives the driver access to four distinct exhaust compositions. “Touring” mode has a subtle, understated tone perfect for flying under the radar. “Sport” mode is an all-around dynamic mode that changes tone based on inputs from your vehicle. “Track” mode is wide-open, tuned for maximum performance and sound. “Custom” mode allows the driver to custom program the valve activation from their Apple device as well as offering virtually endless sound possibilities.
