Roush is one of the biggest names in the Mustang world and they have some big plans for the 2015 Mustang. Although there has been a lot of focus on a Shelby or SVT variant of the S550 Mustang, Mustang Tuner Roush is teasing us with a taste of their vision for the 2015 Mustang. There was an open house event where Roush previewed their 2015 Roush Mustang. From the pictures posted online, Roush seems to be going all out in classic Roush Performance fashion.
Roush has had a longstanding relationship with the Ford Mustang and really stepped their game up for the S197 Mustangs. For 2015 it looks like they are pulling-out all the stops once again in making a Roush badged 2015 Mustang. From renderings they have displayed at an open house, it looks like they are planning some major changes to the exterior of the S550 Mustang to give it a much more aggressive and dominant presence. The front fascia itself looks much more pronounced with a chin splitter, lower grille, and accented air ducts.
On the rear, a Roush spoiler and rear diffuser look like they will be making a return to the Roush package. There have been some different teaser renderings of wheels Roush may use to set their Mustang apart from the rest. Roush wheels have been a very desired design in the aftermarket Mustang Wheel scene, spawning many imitations and solidifying the brand as a whole.
No Room For a Supercharger?
The concept hood designs Roush has shown so far not only show accented hood vents, but also an increased height of the hood’s profile with a bulge in the middle. The profile of the 2015 Mustang hood has been an issue of contention for some; Ford claims that the lowering of the hood profile is what caused the horsepower loss for the V6 model. Ford has also made comments that the stock hood on the GT will not accommodate a supercharger, which is disappointing to say the least. A heightened hood profile would be needed for a supercharger, which is part of the Stage 3 Roush package. Whipple Superchargers have been working on a supercharger design for the 2015 Mustang, but that as well will more than likely require an aftermarket hood.
Roush Performance gave a teaser of their delivery date for “July 1st, 2014 – November 1st, 2014” on the one pamphlet they had at the open house. That date is quickly approaching, especially since the base model 2015 Mustangs should already be in production and be on the roads soon. What do you think is more hype worthy? A Roush Performance 2015 Mustang or a Shelby GT350 Mustang with a Voodoo Engine?
