Video: More Details On The 2015 Mustang Convertible

The Ford Mustang was always envisioned as a convertible from the very beginning, and droptop models make up about 20% of all Mustang sales. More importantly than that, the Mustang is currently Ford’s only convertible vehicle, anywhere in the world. When you look at it like that, suddenly the Mustang convertible seems like serious business.

The 2015 Mustang trunk not only has a bigger opening, but more space as well, enough to fit two sets of golf clubs inside. Designers also gave the convertible Mustang slightly different lines to accentuate the flatop look and width of the new model. More space and a unique look are cool, but the best new feature is functional.

By grabbing and twisting a single, center-mounted lever, two hooks on the outside of the top latch or unlatch; no more reaching across the passenger’s seat to put the top down.

The top itself is made from cloth for a quieter, more affluent feel, and it folds away in half the time of the outgoing model. Put it all together, and you get a more complete and competitive Mustang convertible than any before it.
