US-based tuning firm Roush Performance has made its way to the country of South Africa, according to local website IOL. Upgrade packages for the right-hand-drive Ford Mustang EcoBoost and GT models are now available through a Ford Performance facility in Centurion, and will later be offered through authorized Ford dealers across the country.
The Roush Performance Mustang upgrades come with a 3-year/60,000-km powertrain warranty, and don’t void any other part of the vehicle’s factory warranty. IOL reports that two upgrade levels are available in South Africa for the Ford Mustang EcoBoost, and three upgrade levels for the Ford Mustang GT. America’s base V6 pony car isn’t available in right-hand-drive markets.
Last month, we reported that Australia had hit a snag when trying to introduce Roush Performance packages for the current Ford Mustang, in the form of stringent government design rules. It looks like South Africa has beaten Australia to bringing the upgrades to market.
