Say Hello To The 2020 Roush Stage 2 Mustang

Tuning / Comments

Make your 2020 Mustang into the best-handling car it can be.

Ford Mustang customers are spoiled for choice when it comes to power and performance upgrades, with myriad different aftermarket companies peddling kits that run the gamut from mild suspension upgrades to bonkers, high-powered supercharger packages, like Hennessey's 808-horsepower "Heritage Edition" Mustang kit.

But few if any Mustang tuners have a reputation quite as sterling as Roush Performance, and now, the company has released details of the latest iteration of its Stage 2 Mustang upgrade package.

Rather than throw a supercharger at the factory 2020 Ford Mustang GT's dual-injected Coyote V8 and call it a day, with the Stage 2, Roush has chosen to transform the 'Stang's appearance and handling performance, making it the best-looking driver's car it can be at its stock level of output.

Roush Performance has announced pricing of $12,995 for the Stage 2 package, on top of the purchase price of the factory Mustang. Power stays unchanged at 460 peak horsepower, although the car does get a boost in sound output through a Roush exhaust system with quad black tips. A Roush Stage 2 graphics and emblem package, R9 Aero Body Kit, exterior lighting enhancements, and a Sport interior package work a treat to elevate the appearance inside and out.

But it's the performance enhancements that really make the Stage 2 package appealing. Your $12,995 secures your ride a custom in-house MagneRide damper calibration to maximize road-holding and cornering performance. Remember: Jack Roush is a NASCAR team owner, and his son is active in sportscar racing. If there's anyone you can trust to calibrate your Mustang's ride, it's them.

On top of that, the Stage 2 kit rides on a set of exclusive 20-inch Jet Black Roush wheels wrapped in Ultra High-Performance Continental ExtremeContact Sport summer tires. Together, with the custom MagneRide calibration, the Roush Stage 2 will pull an impressive 1.07 G on the skid pad, and carve up a road course with ease.

If you've got more to spend, Roush will happily sell you one of its extra-cost packages, which include stuff like a Powertrain Cooling package, a Roush Active Exhaust, X- or H-Pipe exhaust plumbing, and 20-inch Agate Gray forged wheels - all stuff that will come in handy should you decide to run a few track days.

Many will find it unfortunate that Roush's 2020 Mustang Stage 2 package does nothing for peak power output, but realistically, 460 horsepower is more than enough even for an experienced track driver. And anyway, you can always add power later.
