Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my review of the RTR upper and lower grille for the 2015 to '16 Mustang. This is the exact same upper and lower grille that comes OE on the RTR Mustang, so if you really dig that look, then this combo could be for you. And even if you're not too familiar with the RTR Mustang, but you're looking for something to upgrade the front grille and have a different, more of an aftermarket aggressive look as opposed to that stock look, then you might want to check these out. This grille does keep the general idea of that stock three window design, but it does it with a twist that squares off your middle portion more here and accentuates the sides a little bit more than the factory design. It does still keep the honeycomb design, but it's tighter than the stock honeycomb, and I think it generally looks better. This upper grille does eliminate that pony, though, which ends up helping to give a more race inspired appearance that RTR is known for. This is offered as a combo kit, both upper and lower grilles, for just under $450. Or you can buy the upper and lower separate if you don't want to spring for the combo. You're looking at just under $250 for the upper grille alone or about $200 for the lower grille. The install for these grilles is easy, a one out of three wrenches on the scale, but the time for the install's obviously going to change depending on if you're installing both upper and lower grilles or just one or the other. I'd say about two hours to complete both since both grilles are complete replacements. And you won't need anything special to complete the install, but you will be popping off that front fascia, so a jack and some stands might be nice just to elevate the car some. Getting the top factory grille out isn't as hard as you might think it is. There's a soft gasket that comes out with a little help from a screwdriver, and then you can remove the plastic clips that are along the edge. You can just the manipulate the tabs so you can pull the grille out, but be a little careful so you don't break anything. The new grille installs the same way that the factory grille came out. It just snaps into place in the bumper cover, and then the center bumper soft gasket goes right back in after the new grille. After that, it's just a matter of getting the front bumper back on the car the same way you took it off. After seeing these installed here on our own S550, I can tell you that the fit and finish is very much OEM-like. The grilles are lightweight but fit great and seem to be nicely done and sturdy. Wrapping things up here, the RTR upper and lower grilles add a little twist to the factory front grille to give the look that RTR is known for, a modern, aggressive race-inspired appearance. The grilles are complete replacements, and they fit great and even allow a little more air flow to the rad than the factory grilles do. You can check these grilles out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Ready To Rock! Add the same exact Upper and Lower Grilles that are included as original equipment on the Ford Mustang RTR, designed and developed by Vaughn Gittin Jr., to your very own late model muscle car for a modern aggressive race inspired appearance.

Improves Cooling. These RTR Grilles not only add aggressive styling to your S550 Mustangs front end, but they also increase air flow to the radiator, when compared to the stock grille, for improved engine cooling.

Quality Construction. Designed using the original OEM CAD data from Ford to ensure a perfect fit, both the upper and lower RTR Grilles are manufactured from an OEM quality high pressure injection molded high-strength thermal plastic olefin (TPO) material for its long lasting durability against the elements and the hazards of daily driving.

Application. These RTR Grilles are designed to fit the 2015 to 2017 GT, EcoBoost and V6 Mustangs with the stock front fascia installed. The upper and lower grilles are available separately or in a convenient combo kit (select from choices above).

Technical Note. The RTR Lower Grille is not compatible with Mustangs equipped with the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Please Note. The Upper Grille is compatible with the RTR Grille Lights. For all those customers who already own the standard RTR Grille an LED Accent Lighting upgrade kit is in now available - please see the "Accent Lighting Only" option listed on part# 389944.

  • This grille along with the LED lights was designed on a US spec Mustang. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee fitment on a Euro spec Mustang since there may be some differences in wiring.

Will the RTR Grille fit a 2017 GT Premium?

  • Yes the RTR Grille will be able to fit on a 2017 GT Premium. However if your Mustang is equipped with the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), that feature will not work properly if you install the RTR lower grille on your car

Is there a way to put the pony emblem back onto this grille?

Jdoug

  • Yes - there is a write up at the mustang6g forums by user suckerv that tells you how he did it. Apparently the factory stallion has 4 threaded bolts on the back. You can affix the pony with some double sided 3M tape and 4-40 nuts.

    Great Upgrade from Stock Grille

    I got the upper and lower RTR grilles, and everyone who has seen it agrees that it's a major improvement over the stock grille. A tri-bar running pony emblem can fit, but you'll have to work with it to make it fit. I didn't feel comfortable removing the front fascia (instructions were included) so I took it to a local Ford dealership, and their service department installed it.

    Fits well

    The grille fits and looks great. The installation is such a pain, took 3.5 hours just for the upper grille. Instructions aren't the most helpful to find the one hidden screw you have to pop out the front wheel wells for.

    Absolutely stunning look on the car

    Take your time and keep track of all of your push pins when removing the bumper, be sure to get the small 5.5mm fasteners below the radiator cover under rubber flaps (the bumper should come off easily). Watch some removal videos and get a friend for some help. Total time was no more than 2 hours while doing more than just that.

    15-17 RTR Grille

    This grille is a game changer for my 2015...clean aggressive looking front end is the way to go! Fitment was amazing on both upper and lower grills. Would highly recommend this product. I did get over excited when purchasing,however. My car (had) adaptive cruise and collision, but with the new grills, I lost both. The lower grille will not allow the cruise device to be in its place. End all say all, came up with a design, had a shop bend up a bracket then re-installed the unit.

    Perfect for a more aggressive look.

    The grill fit perfectly to the bumper of my v6 2016 Mustang and it looks awesome. Installation was simple with a few tricky screws and clips. My only concern is the possibility of objects flying into the two openings on both ends of the grill where the lights would be. Other than that, this grill is fantastic.

    Direct Competitor Just Whooped my Tail!

    Hey guys. I just got around to finishing up the install of the RTR Grilles! As expected, it was an incredibly simple install. Direct replacement for any factory or aftermarket grilles that are on the OEM front bumper. I mention aftermarket, because I am swapping out my own personally build grilles for these new RTR Grilles. I'm incredibly proud of my own product, but must say that I prefer the looks of the RTR to my own grilles that I produce. I need to go back to the drawing board! The angled fangs give it a much more unique look than the other common GT grill and/or deletes. The materials are top notch, packaging was stellar, and as expected, the folks at American Muscle took great care of me with fast shipping and unbeatable pricing! How can they produce such a great alternative at less cost that the competition?! RTR Magic! That's how! Scroll up, *Add to Cart*, Thank me later! Love these new grilles and cannot wait for the LED Accent Lights!! Thank you again American Muscle and RTR, you've knocked it out of the park yet again! -ProjectWhitemare

    Great looking, aggressive!

    I meant to get the RTR grille with LED lights but it was not available, and the light should be available separately so I just purchased this grille first with RTR side skirts and rear diffuser. They all fit very nice on the actual car, looks much better than it is on the picture!

    RTR Grille

    The install wasn't quite less than 1 hour but it is right around that if not a little longer. The hardest part is getting to those two hidden screws in the bumper. This was my third time taking the bumper off so it was a little easier for me. The fitment is perfect and the grille looks great especially with my Howler badge. Could not be happier with the grille and I would recommend to anyone looking to have a clean look or add a badge.

    Agressive and lean with a touch of classy!

    Product is well built! Very clean lines and the pattern of the mesh is exactly what I was looking for. One of the biggest things about the s550 generation is that when you buy one thing you have to replace it later if you're interested in another. RTR grilles are going to be accepting the light mods and I love that I don't have to pick up another entire grille for it. 30 minute install with me filming the whole thing and if you've taken a bumper down before this is no problem at all!!! Great piece! My favorite grille so far! Check it out on YouTube. Search Tony lam and find the Oxford white mustang!

    Good looking grill

    The RTR upper and lower grills look great! Definitely better looking than the stock grills. Straight forward install that took about 2 hours to complete. Owning a impact will make taking the bumper off a lot faster. There's two screw's that are tuff to get to and removing the stock grills are a little tricky, but with a little patients, its not that hard. Can't wait to get the RTR accent lights!

    RTR Upper Lower Grille

    Got this to add a more aggressive look and to remove the stock grille with the pony. It was really easy to install (except for the two bumper/fender screws, they were a little difficult). Recommend two (2) people to install so you don't scratch your bumper. Solid product with a great look!
