Its nice to see Roush getting behind the new 3.7L V6 Mustang platform. I great to see this level of support. I personally like a lot of what Roush does with Mustangs and I am sure some of these new parts will find their way onto my 3.7L Mustang. The ROUSH RS or “ROUSH Six” package is based on the 3.7L V6 Ford Mustang and receives several ROUSH styling and handling parts. Gary Jurick, GM of ROUSH Performance, states “The RS opens a new niche for ROUSH Performance, offering great fuel economy, a good level of power, at an economical price, while still embodying ROUSH’s spirit of performance.” The RS certified package starts at $4,000.
The ROUSH RS Mustang enhancements include 19″ premium painted Wheels, the same wheels and tires found on the factory Ford Mustang GT with Brembo brakes, and ROUSH lowering springs with progressive rate jounce bumper. They lower the car about one inch in the front and rear, thus lowering the Mustang’s center of gravity. The RS body incorporate many of the R6 aerobody components featured on the ROUSH Stage vehicles including the high flow upper and lower grilles, front chin splitter, side rocker splitters and rear decklid spoiler. It also comes with the distinct “R” fender badges and the “R” ROUSH faux gas cap. Plus the ROUSH windshield banner. Optional items are a hood scoop, rear quarter window louvers, and RS exterior side and hood graphics are also available.
The interior upgrades include ROUSH embroidered floor mats, billet performance pedals and a ROUSH center console badge/button. Optional RS interior upgrades include GT charcoal leather seating or ROUSH sport leather seating along with white or black shifter ball and the suede wrapped performance steering wheel. ROUSH door sill plates are available with ambient lighting.
“The RS will address the Mustang V6 owner that is looking for the ROUSH touch off the showroom floor.” Great fuel economy, great price point, great fun, the ROUSH RS Mustang.
