Ford SA has unveiled the 2021 Roush Mustang which is set to be available in South Africa through Performance Centre in Pretoria later this year. The new 2021 Roush Mustang commemorates the 25th anniversary of Roush Performance Products, with the first Roush Mustang making its debut in 1996. The new Roush Mustang comes with exterior updates and more power.
The 2021 Roush Mustang comes with the sporty R9 kit which includes heat extracting hood vents, fender vents, high flow upper and lower grilles, functional aero corner pockets, rear aerofoils and a blacked-out rear decklid panel that sits above the quad black-tip performance exhaust. The Roush Mustand has the Roush chin spoiler which separates airflow above and beneath the Mustang, working to reduce overall aero drag.
The new Mustang Roush rides on ultra high-performance Continental ExtremeContact Sport Tyres on the front and rear which are fitted to 20×9.5-inch Jet Black wheels or alternatively with Agate Gray forged wheels to give it a sporty look.
Performance Centre is also offering the Podium package as an option for those customers who want to distinguish themselves from the pack. This package includes a carbon fibre rear wing with active aerodynamics, a sporty Brembo brake upgrade with new pads and rotors and Roush billet pedals.
Performance Centre is also offering the full set of Roush-inspired interior updates which include custom gauge cluster overlays, illuminated door sills and Roush toolkit. Inside the cabin you also get sports-leather seats featuring the Roush logo, Roush-embossed floor mats and Roush key fobs. Every new Roush Mustang carries a certificate of authenticity with a serial plaque on the dashboard.
The 2021 Roush Mustang is powered by the standard 5.0 V8 Mustang GT which is equipped with the Roush TVS2650 supercharger which lifts the power of the Roush to 560kW of power and 910Nm of torque. The output can be raised a step higher to 578kW, which makes it the most powerful Stage 3 Roush Mustang alongside its predecessor, the Jack Roush Edition launched in 2020. Necessary upgrades in this version comprise a new air filter, upgraded supercharger belt, additional tuning of the direct injection and optimised calibration of the engine’s ECU to support the higher performance demands.

Pricing will become available when first units arrive in South Africa in the second quarter of 2021.
