Dearborn has updated the 2021 Ford Mustang line-up with a few small changes and a newcomer, the Mach 1 model, but for true power the Roush ‘Stage 3’ Mustang serves up 775 horsepower with factory blessings…
While all eyes are currently fixed on the electric Mustang Mach-E crossover, the 2021 update for the proper Ford Mustang went by without much notice. Just days ago the Dearborn manufacturer released the online configurator for the 2021 Ford Mustang, which includes the new Mach 1 model, back after a 17-year hiatus.
Apart from a bunch of newly added colours to the exterior body palette – Grabber Yellow, Antimatter Blue, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Fighter Jet Gray exclusively for the Mustang Mach 1 – there are also new 19-inch wheel designs, new racing stripe options, new interior colours, and a rear-seat-delete check box.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Comes with a manual Tremec six-speed transmission as standard, and a 5.0-litre V8 rated at 480 horsepower plus an available handling package if you pay extra. For monster performance, the 2021 Mustang Shelby GT500 serves up 760 horsepower and sits at the top of the line-up.
In case that’s not quite enough, you can turn to Roush who has taken the 2021 Mustang and thrown a massive supercharger on top of the V8 as well as new plumbing to put 775 horsepower to the rear wheels. It’s the most powerful Roush ‘Stang ever, and it comes with the same Ford factory warranty offered on any Mustang.
As a ‘Stage 3’ package, Roush gives the 2021 car a full working over with a body kit including a front spoiler, vented bonnet and fenders, and exclusive 20-inch wheels. A quad exhaust also makes the cut, and of course there are numbered plaques inside for authenticity. With launch control the Stage 3 Roush will do zero to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and run the quarter mile in the low 11s. That’ll get you noticed.
