The American Mustang tuners at Roush Performance have announced details about their plans to upgrade the all new 2011 pony car. There will be two different versions of the modified Mustang, appropriately called Stage 1 and Stage 2; with both starting out with the blue oval’s new 5.0 Liter power plant producing 412 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque. The Stage 1 package will consist of nothing more than a few aesthetic changes including the Roush body kit, meanwhile the Stage 2 kit adds a few new suspension parts to improve the 21st century pony car’s handling package.
According to the man himself, Jack Roush, "the 2011 ROUSH Stage 1 and Stage 2 Mustangs will represent an incredible value by blending appearance and handling with an amazing base Ford engine package... I expect that the 2011 Stage 1 and Stage 2 Roush Mustangs could come close to matching the performance of some Roushcharged Mustangs we have offered in prior model years which will make them extremely exciting to drive and at a reasonable starting price point." While this is well and good for now, Roush fans are accustomed to a blower under the hood, and they can rest assured because the team is hard at work with a few power adding parts which will be available sometime this summer.
Press release after the jump.
