Jack Roush is a big name in the racing game. Roush has been the manager of many racing teams over the years and has helped top race car drivers win. He also has plenty of knowledge about what it takes under-the-hood to make a great performing vehicle, which is how he created the ROUSH Mustang.
With all of this knowledge, Roush went to Ford in 1988 with his first Mustang idea. He dreamt up a powerful vehicle with a 400 horsepower turbocharged engine. But, at this time Ford thought that its production would simply be too expensive.
Roush didn’t give up on his dream Mustang, though. In 1995, he created ROUSH Performance Products, which served as a specialty-vehicle company. His team used their production and performance knowledge to create cars that could rip up the race track while still being street-friendly.
The first generation of ROUSH Mustangs was available through the 1998 model year and came in three stages (Stage 3 being the most advanced performance-wise). When the second generation rolled around, even more packages were added like the Sport, Rally, and Premium packages.
Ever since they debuted, ROUSH Mustangs have been a hit. The latest ROUSH Mustang is part of the fourth generation and offers more updates than ever, like integrated aero-pockets and a five-blade upper grille.
