What is the ROUSH JackHammer Mustang?

For 2018, ROUSH Performance will only produce 200 special edition Mustangs called the JackHammer. The ROUSH JackHammer Mustang is a “to be supercharged” Mustang coming straight out of the ROUSH facility in Livonia, MI. JackHammer gets a boost in horsepower this year. The new ROUSH TVS 2650 supercharger produces a staggering 710 horsepower! All superchargers will be installed at the dealership you wish to take delivery at. JackHammers can be ordered with the MT-82 6-speed transmission or the new A10 automatic transmission.

What sets the JackHammer apart from the rest of the ROUSH lineup?

JackHammers have many unique appearance features that set them apart from the ROUSH Stage 1 and Stage 2 Mustangs. Let’s start with ROUSH hockey stripe. This stripe is only placed on supercharged ROUSH Mustangs. Accent stripes available on the hockey stick graphic include: Matte Black Jack, Sin City Silver, Performance Pearl, and Red Blooded America. Although this JackHammer doesn’t leave the ROUSH facility with a supercharger installed, it still wears the hockey stripe.

2018 ROUSH JackHammer Serial Number 001

Our good friends at Tindol ROUSH Performance in Gastonia, NC. told us that they had a few JackHammers coming to their dealership. We stopped by a couple weeks ago to lay our eyes on them because we have only seen images on social media. Little did we know, they had serial number #001 already sold and on the dealer lot!

The heart of the beast

Say goodbye to the TVS 2300 supercharger that has been used on the S197 and S550 platform. The new TVS 2650 supercharger produces a ground pounding 710hp! This puts the JackHammer down in history as the fastest ROUSH Mustangs to come out of the ROUSH facility.
