Roush Performance has rolled out the new Roush Six (or RS) package for 2013 Ford Mustangs equipped with the 3.7-liter V-6. The new RS package adds a raft of aesthetic and chassis upgrades for enthusiasts who are still concerned about fuel economy.
The 2013 Mustang V-6 comes standard with a 3.7-liter rated at 305 hp, 280 lb-ft of torque, 19 mpg city, and either 29 or 31 mph highway (depending on the manual or automatic, respectively.) Roush leaves well enough alone, making no tweaks to the powertrain with the RS kits. Instead, Roush adds a new body kit, revised interior trimmings, and chassis updates.
Under the skin, Roush has added lowering springs with a progressive rate jounce bumper that lowers the Mustang by a full inch. Most visually notable to the RS package are many of the parts found on the R6 bodykit found on the high-performance Roush Stage vehicles. Parts carried over to the RS model include high-flow upper and lower grilles, a front chin splitter, side rocker splitters, and a rear decklid spoiler. 19-inch painted aluminum wheels from the Mustang GT with Brembo brakes are also included on the RS, as are R fender badges, a Roush windshield banner, and an R-badged Roush faux gas cap. Also available for the RS Mustang are a hood scoop, RS exterior graphics, and rear-quarter window louvers.
Inside, Rough has upgraded the cabin with embroidered floor mats, billet performance pedals, and a Roush badge to open the center console. The aftermarket supplier will also offer buyers goodies such as GT charcoal leather seats, black or white shifter ball, a suede-wrapped performance steering wheel, lighted Roush door sills, and sport leather seats.
The Roush RS package will run buyers $4000 on top of the price of a 2013 Ford Mustang V-6, which starts at $22,995 (including destination).
