As Mustang generations go, there isn’t a more recognizable Mustang than the S197 in the modern era. Initially
launched in 2005, the S197 was a complete reset to the last two generations of ponies to come before it. Heading
into the 2010s, the S197 Mustang was at a crossroads to improve the foundation of style, power, and total
performance. Coming into 2011, Ford did not waste any time dropping a bomb on the muscle car community in the
of the 5.0L Coyote V8 and the 3.7L Cyclone V6. Not only the debut of two new engines but also a complete refresh
the S197 Mustang was needed very much.
The entire Mustang community was immediately impacted heavily by the push of new performance, style, and
sophistication. Unlike the S197 from 2005-2010, the refresh reinvigorated the pony to new heights taking it to the
next level. Steeda was the first company to realize the potential of the S197 in 2005 and achieved even more so the
possibility of updating suspension, power, and handling as a whole. More importantly, we have developed numerous
amount of performance parts, including lowering springs, exhaust, cold air intakes, sway bars, and shocks. All of
this combined help the 2011-2014 Mustang become one of the most formidable ponies to come out of the stable.
Throughout every generation of Mustang, there comes a time when Ford will always enact a mid-cycle refresh to spice
up the enthusiast community. No mid-cycle update was more impactful to the Mustang community than the 2011-2014
S197. With the debuted and launch of several new engines, including the “Cyclone” 3.7L V6, “Coyote” 5.0L V8, and
5.8L “Trinity” 32V Supercharged V8 it created an entirely new segment among enthusiasts who may have never been
interested in American’s favorite pony car. Updating upon the incredible retro-design Ford nailed in 2005, the
mid-cycle refresh pushed modern technology with SYNC, LED lighting accents, better interior materials, and
Steeda has been at the forefront at the beginning of the S197 Mustang since 2005, so it was a no-brainer to keep
pushing the boundaries to aid enthusiasts in creating the most prolific pony possible. Developing and engineering
performance parts that are intended to handle any driving include carving your favorite twisty canyon road,
launching down the drag strip, and taking it to your local track to conquer the competition. To achieve this, we
offer a wide selection of lower springs, shocks, coil-overs, sway bars, cold air intakes, superchargers, and more to
culminate the style and performance.
