2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang Adds Power

Oct 14, 2010

Known for coaxing more horsepower out of an engine, Jack Roush has unveiled the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang featuring a factory-installed supercharger.

With the R2300 ROUSHcharger installed, the 5XR Mustang offers 525 hp under the hood and 465 foot-pounds of torque, according to a press release. A maximum of 150 cars will be built, available in a coupe or convertible and only with a six-speed manual transmission.

“I’m always excited to get an opportunity to work on a new engine, and the Ford 5.0-liter is a great platform. It has 412 hp to begin with, but our group was able to coax out another 113 hp with the ROUSHcharger. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR runs fast, sounds great and is another amazing addition to the ROUSH Mustang heritage,” said Roush.

Additional upgrades include a ROUSH suspension kit, 20-inch chrome rims with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires, exhaust with square tips, aggressive body kit, upper billet grille, unique 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang graphics package.

Also, a variety of upgrade options are available including color-matched sport leather seats, big four-piston brakes with 14-inch slotted rotors, vent pod gauge and a lower three-piece billet grille.

Different from previous ROUSH Mustangs, the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang will be sold only as a post-title vehicle, according to the release, meaning that the authorized ROUSH-Ford dealership must presell the car to a customer or title the vehicle before the order can be placed. The Mustangs will not be available for sale in California.
