The level of engineering, durability and compliance testing necessary to meet strict 50-state emissions certifications from CARB and the EPA is a prerequisite for enabling our dealers to sell a Roush Mustang as a new vehicle.
Plymouth Township, MI (PRWEB) December 17, 2015
ROUSH Performance has earned 50-State Vehicle Emission Certification for all 2016 model year ROUSH Stage 3 Mustangs powered by the 670-horsepower supercharged 5.0L V8 engine.
Earning 50-state vehicle emissions and ongoing emissions diagnostics certifications ensures emissions compliance and fault detection for the full useful life (120,000 miles) of the vehicle emissions system as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency.
“Emissions certification as an MOR, or Manufacturer of Record, requires us to meet the same standards as original equipment manufacturers like Ford Motor Company. Having this certification is important, as it allows us to build ROUSH Mustangs as pre-titled vehicles,” explains Gary Jurick, president of ROUSH Performance. “The level of engineering, durability and compliance testing necessary to meet strict 50-state emissions certifications from CARB and the EPA is a prerequisite for enabling our dealers to sell a Roush Mustang as a new vehicle.”
The entire 2016 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is built to ROUSH’s exacting standards at its manufacturing facility just east of Detroit, Michigan. Well-trained professionals build each ROUSH vehicle with a high degree of repeatability, reproducibility, and traceability. Once built, each vehicle must then pass through an extensive end-of-line review and inspection process before being shipped to the customer.
“We test everything to a vehicle manufacturer’s standard,” says Justin Schroeder, vehicle director of ROUSH Performance. ”Superchargers, exhaust systems, suspension, wheels, even the decals, are tested to guarantee quality. Emissions, however, is a critical piece that’s a core component to our manufacturing. You can’t skip that step because ROUSH is a performance vehicle manufacturer, not a tuner.”
