2015 Ford Mustang by Roush Performance

The 2015 Ford Mustang hasn’t even hit showrooms yet, but the aftermarket performance scene is already preparing for upgrades and modifications. Legendary Mustang modifier Roush Performance is among the first on the scene with a silhouette teaser of its upcoming creation. Roush posted the image on its Facebook, saying more information would be slowly revealed over the next few weeks. As of August 1, 2014, the picture and pure speculation is all we have to go on.

Roush is famous for offering different stages of performance boosts via bolt-on parts, namely superchargers. It’s very likely this trend will continue with the new Mustang. Remember, the ‘Stang’s 5.0-liter V-8 isn’t changing all that much for 2015, so Roush already knows what it is dealing with.

Roush’s current supercharger offerings include Stages one through three. The Stage 1 kit bumps power up 155 horses and 115 pound-feet to total an impressive 575 horsepower and 505 pound-feet. What’s more, the Stage 3 kit pushes power to 675 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque. Those are stout numbers, to say the least.

Of course a Roush-upgraded Mustang wouldn’t be complete without a body kit. No doubt Roush will add aero bits like diffusers, spoilers, and chin splitters to the new pony car.

But hang on, the 2015 Mustang has a new performance-minded engine under its hood: the 2.3-liter EcoBoost. Perhaps Roush is planning performance upgrades for the four-pot. A bigger turbo? Larger intercoolers? Upgraded fuel injectors? Maybe Roush will push the 310-horse EcoBoost closer to 400 horsepower? For now, it’s all speculation, but stay tuned as Roush debuts its plans for the all-new Mustang .

The 2015 Ford Mustang is new from the ground up. Even the live rear axle is gone. The ‘Stang enjoys a refreshed exterior that still pays homage to those early Mustangs yet still looks futuristic. The same can be said for its interior. It’s an all-new cockpit, but looks more upscale than before. Added lightness will also help the Mustang outperform its previous version.

Speaking of performance, the Mustang is available with three powertrains: the base 3.7-liter V-6, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder, and the mighty 5.0-liter V-8. Each lay down impressive number. The V-6 puts down 300 horses, the EcoBoost makes 310, and the V-8 brings 435 horses to the game.

Pricing for the 2015 Mustang starts at $24,425 and heads north to $46,995 for Limited Edition 50th anniversary Mustang GT.
