Ford’s Mustang is the car that kicked off the whole ‘pony car’ craze back in 1964. This is the car that gave rise to competitors such as the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird/Trans-Am and Dodge Challenger, to name a few. The Mustang’s reach even influenced Ford of Europe to create the Ford Capri, and Toyota’s Celica was styled in a similar fashion. Six generations later, the Mustang is still alive and kicking. The Mustang is also a favorite among tuners such as Shelby and Roush, and this is a 2019 Ford Mustang GT Premium Roush Stage 3 that’s been extensively fettled by Roush to create a next-level Mustang. How does 700 horsepower grab you? That’s what this Mustang offers. It comes from Kentucky with just 8,600 miles on the clock.
The sixth-generation Mustang saw the fifth-generation’s retro-modern outlook given a nip and tuck. The iconic Mustang shape is still there, but freshly re-imagined for the 21st century. This 2019 Ford Mustang GT Premium Roush Stage 3 is endowed with a Magnetic Gray paintwork and a host of Roush goodies. It’s got a high flow upper and lower grille, extensive Roush badging all over, front chin spoiler with wheel surrounds, body-colored side scoops, rear valance aero foils, and rear deck spoiler. It rolls on a set of 20” Quicksilver black-painted wheels with ultra-high performance Continental tires. A Multi-color ground effects LED package is also installed for that extra bit of presence and street cred. The Roush stage 3 graphics package and Roush windshield banner don’t let passers-by forget that this isn’t a regular Mustang GT. The black interior brings yet more Roush goodies, with a Roush serialized dash plaque, Roush Design instrument cluster, Roush illuminated door sill plates and Roush embroidered floor mats. That’s a lot of Roush, isn’t it? You get the usual Mustang creature comforts such as dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats and infotainment system too.
This 2019 Ford Mustang GT Premium Roush Stage 3 comes with a 5.0L (307ci) V8 that’s been supercharged and extensively breathed on by Roush to put out 710 horsepower. The power goes to the rear wheels through a ten-speed automatic and extreme duty half-shafts. Paddle shifters behind the steering wheel allow the driver to manually control shifting. Performance 1-way adjustable suspension is also installed for better handling and dynamics.
