ROUSH uncovers two new 540hp Ford Mustangs

ROUSH 540RH Ford Mustang

There’s no question that many great things come in pairs.  Roush Performance isn’t about to let this old adage dry up either.  The official announcement of two Ford Mustang variants, one of which is entirely new, is going to give the previously exhibited 2010 Roush 427R some new stable mates.  The 2010 Roush Stage 3 and the new nameplate, the Roush 540RH “Hammer”, have entered the aftermarket scene with poise, passion, and most importantly, performance.  These new Roush Mustangs pump out 540 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque–plenty to go around and enough to bring a grin to any grump’s face.  The power is bolstered by a second-generation R2300 supercharger and is laid to the pavement by superior-performing Cooper RS3 tires.  The Roush Stage 3 and the Roush 540RH are a fine pair to draw two, indeed, so keep reading to get all the details in the Press Release from Roush.

Video of the 2010 Cobra Jet Mustang on the strip

2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet testing

Mere months ago, we were excited at the fact Ford would let the Cobra Jet Mustang roll on into 2010 with the new model’s release.  Now, we are able to see some testing firsthand via some slick video footage of the 2010 Cobra Jet at a test-n-tune trial.  The famous Milan Dragway in Michigan was the host site for the drag session and from what we can tell, the weather was absolutely perfect.  A new supercharger (a la Whipple), packing a 3.4-liter punch, is set atop the 5.4-liter V8 power plant in order to bolster up the pony car’s pulling ability beyond that of its predecessor.  Also, aside from the Ford photos and this video, we haven’t seen a real good close-up of the car to give it a fan’s eye…perhaps we’ll get the chance to do so at the official debut of the 2010 Cobra Jet Mustang at SEMA this November.  Until that happens, we’ll have to be satisfied with this video of the 2010 Cobra Jet roaring down the quarter-mile path.

Consumer Reports Rates Ford Mustang above Camaro, Challenger

2010 Ford Mustang

By now, we’ve all seen the reports on the recent three-month streak for 2010 Ford Mustang sales and how they stack up to the new Chevrolet Camaro…big whoop.  After the novelty wears off, the market will likely wise up once again, as they’ll realize just how high-quality a product the Ford Mustang really is.  Despite the recent disparate sales figures, the revamped 2010 Mustang has taken out the competition yet again the modern-day pony car wars.  Consumer Reports has rated the new Ford Mustang GT as “Very Good” with a score of 78 points, while the Chevrolet Camaro SS achieved a score of “Very Good”, but only managed to rack up 71 points.  The Dodge Challenger R/T skidded by with a “Good” rating and a mere 53 points overall.  Now, we all know that numbers and ratings are one thing, but seriously, get out there and drive a new 2010 Mustang, a Camaro SS, and a Challenger and see for yourself: the new Mustang is refined, yet powerful.  It’s elegant, yet robust, and can even be considered rude when woken up.
