2015 Ford Mustang Convertible

Ford dropped all the details on the new 2015 Mustang Convertible last month, and now they followed that up with a video that highlights some of the features and improvements to the drop top. The convertible model accounts for 20 percent of Mustang sales, so it was essential that Ford upgrade the packaging to compete in the current market.

First up is the trunk, which Ford’s North American car marketing manager Steve Ling explains actually has more usable space thanks to the lower and wider stance of the car. As seen in the video, two golf bags easily fit in the space even with the top down.

Next, product development engineer Ron Lovasz goes over the improved quality of materials and functionality. Owners of current generation Mustang convertibles will be jealous to see a centrally located single-latch system, as opposed the current dual-latch system, and their likely to be envious of the high quality all cloth top that not only looks better but is quieter than the current cloth and vinyl top.

Finally, the video shows how much quicker the function of the new convertible top is compared to the current model with a side-by-side comparison of both in action.

    Hmm…does really not match its competitors. Many have folding hard tops or at least a hatch that opens and closes automatically to cover the roof completely when folded back and no covers that have to be fixed manually an just covering the edges. Another question arises: Must I stop to open the roof? It is standard in many European convertibles -and not only luxury ones- that the roof can be opened during driving at speeds up to 18 mph. All other things I saw here are common standard. Seems that they had to save some money during developement.
