2011 Roush 5XR Mustang: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 1, 2010

The tuning specialists at ROUSH have worked their magic on the 2011 5XR Mustang and have raised its output to no less than 525hp and 630 Nm of torque. ROUSH fitted the muscle car with the factory-installed ROUSH charger.

ROUSH will only build 150 units of the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang, with each getting a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty on the powertrain and ROUSH components.

ROUSH is offering the units in coupe and convertible versions and only with a six-speed manual transmission. The tuner gave the car a set of ROUSH 20-inch chrome rims with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires.

Other features include a ROUSH exhaust with square tips, a custom body kit, a ROUSH front fascia with driving lamps, front chin splitter, side rocker splitters, rear valance and three-piece decklid spoiler.

The tuning package also offers exclusive 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang graphics and badging. Jack Roush, chairman of ROUSH Enterprises, said that he considers the Ford 5.0-liter to be a “great platform,” which has a stock output of 412hp but with the ROUSHcharger, has been given 113hp more.

He further described the 2011 ROUSH 5XR to be a vehicle that “runs fast, sounds great, and is another amazing addition to the ROUSH Mustang heritage.” Each buyer will receive a letter of authenticity, personally signed by Jack Roush. Each package carries a suggested retail price of $15,390 aside from the cost of the base Mustang chassis.

Press Release

2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang

Jack Roush is a man who knows how to coax horsepower from an engine. ROUSH® has become an automotive powerhouse based on this simple premise, and he couldn't wait to get his hands, and his engineering team, on the new Ford 5.0L engine. The end result, and the car fans of the ROUSH Mustang have been waiting for, is the 2011 ROUSH 5XR™ Mustang with "more power" under the hood thanks to the factory-installed ROUSHcharger®.

Make no mistake, the 2011 ROUSH 5XR is a runner. With the R2300 ROUSHcharger installed the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang will sport an "extreme" 525 horsepower under the hood, along with an "exciting" 465 lb.-ft. of torque. To keep the "exclusivity" high, there will be a maximum of just 150 units of the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang built, each with a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty on the powertrain and ROUSH components. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang is available in a coupe or convertible, but only with a six-speed manual transmission.

"I'm always excited to get an opportunity to work on a new engine, and the Ford 5.0-liter is a great platform. It has 412 horsepower to begin with, but our group was able to coax out another 113 horsepower with the ROUSHcharger. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR runs fast, sounds great, and is another amazing addition to the ROUSH Mustang heritage," said Jack Roush, motorsports legend and chairman of ROUSH Enterprises.

To handle the road, a ROUSH suspension kit has been installed to provide superior handling and ride control. This includes front struts, rear shocks and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars. The car rides on ROUSH 20-inch chrome rims with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires.

The installed ROUSH exhaust with square tips gives the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang a deep, throaty sound worthy of a supercharged American V-8 muscle car. The aggressive ROUSH body kit changes the appearance of the car so people know that this is not just any Ford Mustang prowling the roads. The appearance upgrades include a ROUSH front fascia with driving lamps, front chin splitter, side rocker splitters, rear valance and three-piece decklid spoiler. A ROUSH upper billet grille streamlines the front of the vehicle and provides some additional cooling to the engine, and a unique 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang graphics package trims out the appearance of this limited edition vehicle. Badging unique to this vehicle can be found throughout the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang.

One thing that makes this car different from previous ROUSH Mustangs is that the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang will be sold only as a post-title vehicle. This means that the authorized ROUSH-Ford dealership must pre-sell the car to a customer or title the vehicle before the order can be placed in the ROUSH system. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang is not available for sale in California. Please contact your local ROUSH-authorized Ford dealer for more information, or visit www.ROUSHperformance.com to locate your nearest dealer.

A letter of authenticity, personally signed by Jack Roush, will be sent to each buyer of the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR package carries a suggested retail price of $15,390 in addition to the cost of the base Mustang chassis.

In addition to the rich collection of standard features, a variety of upgrade options are available for the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang, including color-matched sport leather seats, big four-piston brakes with 14-inch slotted rotors, vent pod gauge, and a lower three-piece billet grille.
