The 2005 Roush Mustang features power, styling and handling capabilities that are at the core of Jack Roush’s automotive performance values.

“The design direction of the stock 2005 Mustang GT couldn’t have been any better for our application. Our design theme, since we created the first Roush Mustang, was connected to my traditional design preferences,” said Jack Roush.

The new 2005 Roush Mustang follows a traditional design blueprint that is prevalent in all Roush Mustangs.

The Front
With a new front bumper and a lower chin spoiler and splitter, the front end design of the new Roush Mustang is well connected to its racing heritage. Roush has created multiple options for the buyer on the functionality of the front fascia openings.

To complete the front-end design, Roush added a hood scoop that was reminiscent of his days as a driver.

“I pulled the hood scoop from my collection of old Mustang hoods. I pulled one (hood) that I had stored away from a ’69 Mustang. I sat it next to the clay model as a constant reminder of what my favorite Mustang scoop looked like,” said Roush.

The Side Profile
Lowered by 1-inch in the front and ½-inch in the rear, the new Roush Mustang has an aggressive stance on its newly designed 18-inch chrome wheels and performance tires.

Roush designed a side rocker molding to complete the lower design theme. Although a visual trademark of the Roush Mustang for years, the side exhaust option will not be available due to package envelop constraints.

“There were only a couple of inches of clearance for us to work with on the rocker panels. Instead of risking the design with functionality issues, we decided to enhance the rear bumper treatments,” said Roush, “You’ll see that our design team has made it work.”

The Rear
From the standpoint of true Mustang tradition, the fastback rear design treatment from the factory plays more favorably into the Roush design theme than any other Mustang aftermarket designer.

For the Mustang’s rear design treatment, Roush adds: an aggressive rear wing, a nostalgic quarter window scoop, a rear bumper treatment with the Roush brand name embossed between the custom exhaust tips.

“The attention we gave to the rear styling of the Roush Mustang was significant. We’re very proud of the results. The visual impact of a lowered aggressive stance that grips the road with larger aggressive tires and unique exhaust tips will appeal to all American Muscle Car Enthusiasts,” said Joe Thompson, General Manager of Roush Performance.
