Roush Built One Very Special Mustang for Military Serving Abroad

BOLD RIDE

The brave men and women who serve in the United States military undoubtedly have a tough job, and when deployed, they may feel like they’re a million miles from home.
 
But to those personnel with a pony car passion, Roush Performance will supply a little taste of home in the form of a special edition Ford Mustang, the 2015 Roush “Warrior.” The limited production Mustangs are the result of Roush’s partnership with Military AutoSource, and will be available exclusively to military members serving overseas. These aren’t your average ‘Stangs either.

The 2015 Roush Warrior Mustang comes equipped as either the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost or 5.0-liter V8 GT, with the former EcoBoost version adding new gauges, upsized rear sway bar, larger radiator, heavy-duty front springs, larger brake rotors, and a limited-slip rear axle.

Opt for the GT, and Roush adds to that formula a pair of Brembo six-piston front brake calipers, strut and chassis bracing, a Torsen limited-slip rear axle, and most importantly–a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger. Punch the gas and you’ll unleash a heady 627 horsepower.

Outside, the Roush Warrior Mustangs arrive wearing either Black or Race Red paint, and come replete with various body mods, including a new front splitter and fascia, hood scoop, blacked-out rear decklid panel, spoiler, and sideskirt winglets. A Roush quad-tip exhaust and 19-inch black alloy wheels complete the aggressive look, while a 12-speaker Shaker audio system, custom headrests, and light upgrades find their way to the interior.

Pricing is said to start at around $41,000 for the EcoBoost package and $57,000 for the supercharged GT. And given that these Mustangs will only ship overseas to serving military members…they ought to be quite rare.
