When you think of a family car there is a usual image that comes into mind: a four-door, seven-seater minivan. Now, why is it that this is the car that we tend to think of when we consider transporting our family from one place to another? Sure, it has cargo space and it can fit your kids and their friends, but minivans tend to feel and look clunky: unresponsive get-up-and-go, poor handling, plus, it’s not that fun to look at it.
If there is any car that is indicative of the American dream — family, white picket fence, dog playing in the front yard, it’s the muscle car. And if there is any car on the market that possesses that classic, American muscle appearance it’s the Ford Mustang. If you want to drive you and your small family around in sleek style, all with speed, handling, control, and safety measures to follow, you’ll want to consider a ROUSH Mustang.
Now, you just might be asking yourself, “What is a Roush Mustang?” and “Who or What is Roush?”
