Roush Performance unveiled the new Jack Roush Edition Mustang at the 2019 SEMA Show last week, which is equipped with the most powerful engine ever used in a Roush Mustang. The Jack Roush Edition also includes a host of unique performance and aesthetic upgrades that set it apart and was built to commemorate Jack Roush’s recent NASCAR Hall of Fame induction and his legendary racing success. The 775 horsepower 2020 Jack Roush Edition Mustang will be limited to only 60 North American units, with up to 10 available internationally. The vehicle is scheduled to be available in the spring of 2020.
The 2020 Jack Roush Edition Mustang was designed and engineered to showcase the best of ROUSH Performance, featuring state-of-the-art performance components, unique and stunning design features, with a fanatical attention to detail. The car features a Roush Phase 3 TVS R2650 supercharger which boosts the car’s 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine to an overall power output of 775 horsepower and 670 pound-feet of torque. Other performance upgrades include a Roush Active Exhaust System with H-pipe, which offers improved exhaust performance and four different user-selectable exhaust modes. In addition, the Jack Roush Edition Mustang includes a ROUSH Powertrain Cooling Package which adds larger low-temperature radiators, and additional coolers for the engine, transmission and differential to lower engine bay temperatures and improve track performance. It will also include a custom Roush-calibrated MagneRide performance suspension, calibrated with suspension partner BWI, coupled with lowering springs, high-performance Brembo brakes and a unique Active Aerodynamic carbon fiber rear wing for optimal downforce at any speed.
The 2020 Jack Roush Edition Mustang features unique cosmetic touches as well, including a Jack Roush Edition graphics package with unique new fender badging and a bespoke grille. Complimenting the striking exterior lines are model-specific Roush forged wheels wrapped in high-performance Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. Additionally, the new R9 Aero Kit includes an upgraded lower grille opening, chin splitter, functional hood heat extractors, fender vents and corner pockets, a rear diffuser, and a ROUSH rear blackout panel. On the inside, the 2020 Jack Roush Edition Mustang will include a custom interior package including the newly-designed Roush premium leather and suede seats along with a track-ready suede-covered steering wheel.
For those looking for even more performance, the optional Competition Pack will feature unique lightweight forged ROUSH/Weld Racing wheels and Continental ExtremeContactDR racing slick tires which will allow the 2020 Jack Roush Edition Mustang to reach a 1.14g on a skid pad. These ultra high performance tires are designed for track-use only. The Competition Package will also include the “Jack Pack” wheel and tire display along with an integrated track day-ready toolbox and will be sold separately.
The 2020 Jack Roush Edition honors Jack Roush’s impact on the world of motorsports. Having won 32 championships and more than 400 races in professional drag racing, road and stock car racing, Roush is one of the professional sports’ premiere owners. Jack Roush, now the winningest owner in NASCAR history and an icon of American engineering, was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2017 and was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame earlier this year.
“There’s no better way to honor my father’s incredible legacy in automotive performance and motorsports than with our most powerful Mustang ever,” said Jack Roush Jr. “This car features the most cutting-edge combination of Roush components ever assembled and we can’t wait for the lucky owners to experience what this machine has to offer.”
