While ROUSH is still in production on the last of the 2010 model year Mustangs, they have also officially begun building on the 2011 chassis with the new 5.0L engine, which have started arriving from the Flat Rock, MI, assembly plant.

The first cars will be transformed into ROUSH Mustangs with the addition of a Sport, Stage 1 or Stage 2 package. These versions will use the base 2011 Mustang GT powered by the 5.0-liter engine producing 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque as a platform for cosmetic, interior and suspension modifications. These models should start showing up on the dealer lots in the near future.

Already shaking up the pony car world, the standard production Mustang represents an amazing value propsition. Add in some distinctive looks, improved handling, OEM quality and a measure of exclusivity with the ROUSH name, and you've surely got a beacon of driveway envy.

"I expect that the 2011 Stage 1 and Stage 2 ROUSH Mustangs could come close to matching the performance of some ROUSHcharged Mustangs we have offered in prior model years which will make them extremely exciting to drive and at a reasonable starting price point," commented Jack Roush.

The 2011 Roush 427R Mustang is currently under development with Roush engineers who are hard at work developing the 2011 model year ROUSHcharger. Roush engineers are also planning what kind of modifications can be done to the new 5.0-liter engine but don't expect the 427R model until mid-year sometime.
