Roush has just shown off pictures off their 2015 Roush Mustang and it looks amazing! Just a few days ago Saleen debuted the 2015 S302 Mustang to mixed, but mostly positive reviews. Roush has answered back with their S550 specialty Mustang which looks aggressive yet refined, giving it an incredible appearance. Per usual, Roush is giving the new Mustang the full treatment, from a performance and styling perspective.
Unlike Saleen, Roush is offering Mustang enthusiasts Roush packages for the EcoBoost, V6, and GT. There is not a sole focus on the GT, offering the opportunity for EcoBoost and V6 owners alike to own a Roush Mustang. Regardless of engine displacement, Roush Mustang owners will be offered varied levels of performance and power.
Roush Body Kits
All 2015 Roush Mustangs will benefit from the improved appearance of Roush factory body kits, enhancing the lines and profile of the 2015 Mustang. A lot of complaints about the 2015 Mustang’s styling focused on the rounded look of the rear and front fascia, giving it a soft look. Roush remedied this by by replacing the front fascia and grille with their own styling parts, giving it a more defined and aggressive appearance, which in-turn actually extended the nose of the Mustang by a few inches.
Returning to the 2015 Roush are the common place styling cues such as hood vents, front and rear splitters, a signature Roush spoiler, and more. According to Roush, this is not just superfluous styling for the sake of styling, but rather styling that serves a purpose. Roush claims that these modifications help to improve the aerodynamics of the 2015 Mustang, which consequently improves the overall performance of the S550 Mustang.
Roush Performance Parts
Melding together style and performance are the Roush Mustang Wheels featured on the 2015 Mustang. Not only do the new Roush wheels incorporate classic Roush styling, but the 20″ cast wheels offer lighter than stock weight while being able to fit larger rubber to get better grip. Roush Mustangs that come equipped from the factory with the performance package brakes will also see improved rotors and pads offering increased braking power. Rounding out the handling portion of Roush vehicles are the choice of two different types of adjustable coil-over struts.
Roush is offering it’s different staged kits, RS1, RS2, and RS3 for the 2015 Mustang with each one offering varied levels of tuning. While it is still early on and details are murky, we do know that the RS1 will focus on EcoBoost tuning, RS2 will offer improved V8 performance and the RS3 will offer a supercharged option with power output expected around the 675+ HP range. Roush Mustangs will benefit from upgraded exhausts and other performance goodies that will take a stock Mustang to the next level.
How much will a 2015 Roush Mustang Cost?
Details have not been released as of yet, but we can expect options starting in the $40,000 range and increasing with each stage. The 2015 Roush Mustang is expected to be debuted in person at the 2014 SEMA Show in Vegas. If buying a whole Roush tuned Mustang is not a viable option, Mustang owners can benefit from Roush parts being available in the 2015 Mustang parts market. Whether it be styling, wheels, brakes, or a supercharger, all 2015 Mustang owners can reap the benefits of Roush quality and performance.
