2010 Roush 427R Mustang breaks cover

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Roush Performance, the well-known, Ford tuning firm, unveiled the most current manifestation of its long due 427R package for the Mustang. Getting ahead of many other tuning firms, Roush is making available one of the first performance uprates for the latest 2010 Ford Mustang with three different tuning stages.

Although Roush is keeping a tight lid on most of the details, it offered that its top-of-the-line 427R Mustang will be the first to come with the new ROUSHcharger superchager which increases the power yield of the Mustang's 4.6-liter V8 unit to 435hp (325kW) and 400lb-ft (542Nm) of torque.

This is also the first time that Roush offers a supercharged car at the opening of a new body style. In contrast to previous versions, customers will find many changes in the 2010 427R Mustang.

One of the main changes is the removal of the long air induction tube that used to wrap around the engine offering a cleaner, tidier look.

The current intercooler reservoir has more than twice the volume compared to previous versions with the intercooler itself is a single-core cross-flow radiator pointing to more efficient cooling. It is likewise significantly bigger compared with previous models and height has also been boosted providing is ample ground distance for most road debris.

Roush improvements on the V8 powertrain components, which are just carry over from what they used in the 2005-2009 Roush Mustangs, come with much superior appearance and quality. Included in the revisions of the standard Mustang are front air splitter, rear face, side air splitters, and a three-piece wing at the rear.

18 inch wheels on the car are wrapped in high performance Cooper Zeon tires. A larger 20 inch wheel comes as an option. In addition to all these, Roush is making available a new suspension package which comes with a wheel hop reduction kit. Later this year, "Stage 1" and "Stage 2" tuning packages will be offered.
