Roush Performance offers three-stage upgrades for 2013 Ford Mustang

Article by Anita Panait, on April 10, 2012

Roush Performance is offering three stages of enhancements for the 2013 Ford Mustangs, each having distinct features. The Stage One kit allows Mustang owners to improve the looks of their vehicles. For the Stage One kit, Mustang owners could get the R6 aerobody package, which includes a remodeled front end, rocker panels and a hood scoop.

It also includes a three-piece rear decklid spoiler, race-inspired diffusers as well as new chrome exhaust tips. The Stage Two kit allows Mustang owners to upgrade the performance of their vehicles. The kit features upgraded suspension components, beefed-up stabilizer bars, twin-tube shocks, improved bushings and rear control arms. These components help eliminate wheel hop during throttle applications. The Stage Two kit also includes 18-inch aluminum wheels with Cooper RS3 ultra-high-performance summer tires.

The Stage Three kit, meanwhile, adds power to the 2013 Mustang. The Stage Three package features a supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote engine that provides 565 hp and 505 lb-ft of torque, making the 2013 Mustang the highest horsepower street-legal Roush Mustang to date. Mustang owners could also opt to customize the interior with a custom gauge cluster, special floor mats and a other features.

Of course the upgrades are not free. Mustang fans have to churn out $4,500 for the Stage One kit to $16,500 for the Stage Three kit, and a couple more bucks for additional accessories or add-ons ordered.  The prices are higher than the selling price of a 2013 Mustang. Roush has received over 200 orders since opening their order book to dealers in March.

Available in the spring of 2012, the new Mustang has a more active design featuring an extremely pronounced grille. The appearance also has a more powerful splitter. The hood’s functional heat extractors of the GT have a design and placement that assist in cooling the engine by moving hot air from the engine compartment.

A complete Mustang performance is celebrated with this more distinguished and passionate design. While still respecting its heritage, this new Mustang continues to look fresh with a more modern and strong design appearance.

The rocker panels along car are body coloured for a more stylish look, and the rear is improved with a high-gloss black panel connected to the taillamps. Still with the signature Mustang sequential turn signal, the smoked taillamps match the more purposed front.

Standard high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps are new features for the V6 and GT. Other technology upgrades for 2013 include signature lighting, with two individual light-emitting diode (LED) bars accenting the front headlamps and three LED ropes making up the iconic three-bar rear lights.

The new Ford Mustang also features a modified wheel line-up, from a standard 17-inch wheel for the V6 to 19-inch optional wheels for the GT and V6 Performance Packages. The wheels were updated in design and have new touches and finishes for a stronger appearance.
