The Mighty, 670-HP Roush Mustang ‘Warrior’ Is Back For A Third Straight Year

For a third consecutive year, Roush Performance has partnered with Military AutoSource (MAS) to bring the exclusive, powerful Roush Mustang Warrior to members of the US military.

And, for the first time ever, Roush is also offering a special “Scout Edition” variant of the potent Mustang Warrior. It offers the same power and torque as the regular Warrior, but with fewer factory extras and an understated, stock appearance.

The Roush Mustang Warrior and Scout Edition both benefit from Roush’s 2.3-liter TVS supercharger, which takes the Coyote V8 up from its original 435 horsepower / 400 pound-feet of torque, to an impressive 670 hp / 545 lb-ft. The regular Warrior, based on the Ford Mustang GT Premium, is available in either fastback or convertible body style, with either Ford’s 6-speed SelectShift automatic, or the available 6-speed manual. The Scout Edition, built on the base Mustang GT, is available only in fastback form, but offers the same choice of transmissions.

Naturally, both Roush Mustang Warrior models are given distinguishing visual cues; the Scout Edition features a serialized plaque and fender badges, while the higher-spec version offers those, plus a hood with heat extractors and a scoop, body side scoops, rocker panel aero aids, a custom front fascia with aero pockets, high-flow grilles, and more. The fastback model also gets quarter-window scoops and a decklid spoiler not available on the convertible.

The regular Roush Mustang Warrior gets plenty beside, such as embroidered Warrior headrests, a rear black-out panel, Roush shift ball (manual), billet performance pedals, and a full graphics package. Both it and the Scout Edition get extreme-duty half shafts, too, plus a custom Roush exhaust (dual tips on the Scout, quad tips on the Warrior).
