The 2015 Roush Warrior Mustang Is A Special US Military Only Mustang
As one of the best known tuners of Ford vehicles Roush just created another special version of the new Mustang only the bravest of us all can have. Called the Roush Warrior Mustang this exclusive machine is available only for the past or present members of the US military and if we figured this out correctly, only for those who have served abroad. Based on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, this specially prepared vehicle is a unique piece of engineering which you will be able to recognize thanks to some warrior specific elements.
First of all, the plaques on the sides and on the front grille unmistakably suggest that this is a car for a few chosen ones. If you ever see this vehicle, the “Warrior” plaque can reveal the exclusivity and you will know that the man behind the wheel of that vehicle once put his life on line, just to save yours. That is big, no question there.
Apart from a few plaques that differentiate the Roush Warrior from any other Mustang, this tuning company, who actually visited the US military bases in Germany, made a whole list of enhancements and changes drastically improving the performance and the look of the newest Mustang. If you look closely on the attached pictures, the outside look is enhanced by adding a front chin splitter, new grille, so called “performance driving lamps”, new hood scoop and much more. Actually, just by looking at it it is hard not to notice the nicely created decals and subtle rear spoiler. It looks so well thought out that the spoiler reminds us of aerodynamic additions we saw on the old muscle cars from the Seventies.
All these elements weren’t made out of carbon fiber mainly because Roush wanted to keep the cost and the price down so more US military personnel could actually get this unique car. Two versions are available. The Mustang GT based Roush Warrior is the one you should get if you are into muscle cars and all that. Powered by a five liter V8 this vehicle received 2,3 liters TVS supercharger and a whole kit of enhancements and improvements which up the power from 405 HP to insane 627 HP. That power is in the realm of Lamborghini. That one is a Roush Warrior S/C Mustang, while the EcoBoost is, logically a T/C car. We do not really have any data about the power upgrade on the EcoBoost, but the exterior modifications are basically the same as on the GT.
While the engine and the exterior play the biggest role in making this thing as badass as possible, the suspension should keep everything in check. New coilovers were added, the height has been lowered, and everything has been finished off by installing new, bigger wheels.
In order to present this magnificent ride to the US military personnel, Roush decided to show the capabilities of them on the Hockenheimring in Germany. In a statement they’ve revealed that “team Roush visited two military bases in Germany to support OMSC’s Warrior program. The ride and drive event was held at the Hockenheim Ring Track in Hockenheim, Germany,” said the company on social media. “It was really cool to allow the overseas soldiers an opportunity to get some seat time in one of our Roush Warrior T/C Mustangs. These Special Edition Mustangs are made exclusively for active military serving overseas. Afterwards, the Ford/OMSC/Roush went on to visit the largest USAF base in Ramstein, Germany.”
