The 2019 ROUSH Stage 1 Mustang combines aerodynamic ROUSH Performance design and Ford's powerful 2.3l EcoBoost turbo engine. To match Ford's innovations in the engine, ROUSH has pushed the limits and made the 2019 ROUSH Stage 1 the lightest Mustang available in Iowa. It all comes together to make one of the most exciting Mustangs ever, and the best place to find one is at Ames Ford, the #1 ROUSH Performance Dealer in Iowa.

The Performance Team at Ames Ford works with each of our Iowa customers to get their ROUSH Mustang specced out to their liking. As the #1 ROUSH Dealer in Iowa, we work with drivers from Des Moines, Marshalltown, Boone, and beyond to customize their Mustang with ROUSH Performance. Whether you're looking for a ROUSH Mustang for sale near you, or want to customize your own, you can contact the Ames Ford Performance Team to get started.

Below, we are going to look at what makes the 2019 ROUSH Mustang Stage 1 such a popular choice among Iowa enthusiasts. With its combination of light weight, powerful engine, and sleek styling, the ROUSH Stage 1 truly is something special. Read on to learn more about standard ROUSH upgrades, additional options, and the RS1's performance.

Performance Revolutionized

Central Iowa drivers shopping for a ROUSH Mustang know they want performance a stock vehicle won't deliver. Even though the Ford Mustang is known for its dynamic handling and power, customization by ROUSH Performance takes things to a new level.

Take one look at a ROUSH Mustang, and you know it's not like anything else on the road. But the same modifications that give the RS1 its signature ROUSH look aren't just about aesthetics. From the aerodynamic grille and hood elements, to the Performance Exhaust, every design element of the ROUSH Stage 1 Mustang improves Iowa owners' driving experience.

Pulling 310 horsepower from its four-cylinder turbo, the ROUSH Mustang Stage 1 is also lighter than its V8-powered siblings. Nothing quite compares to the 700+ horsepower of the ROUSH Stage 3, but Des Moines owners will love the improved handling and lighter weight of the RS1 compared to Ford's standard Mustang.

ROUSH wheel and suspension upgrades tune the Stage 1 to make its handling comfortable for day-to-day driving and responsive on the track. It might not be a family car, but expert ROUSH calibration makes it a joy to drive in any situation Iowa drivers might encounter.

A high-performance exhaust system is standard on the RS1 Mustang, offering reduced back pressure and increased sound presence. Combined with increased air intake and aerodynamics, the upgraded exhaust does more than just deliver that signature ROUSH growl that our Ankeny, IA customers crave.

Design & Exterior

The ROUSH R8 aero package sets 2019 ROUSH Stage 1 Mustangs apart from any other Mustang in Iowa. The 2019 Stage 1 is designed to maximize airflow, with a high-flow upper grille and signature horizontal bars, while the widened lower grille results in increased engine cooling.

An all-new graphics package is standard on the Stage 1 Mustang, blending iconic Mustang design with modern touches and a wealth of customization options. In addition, there are all-new graphics options, including a new Top Performance stripe with coordinated accent striping.
