The long wait has finally come to an end, after the unveiling of the new Mustang in coupe in convertible form; we also have their respective models first public debut, during the 2014 NAIAS.
We have here to show you live pics with the more exotic design, the sun dwelling Convertible. It looks just as good as the coupe (and the design is virtually identical, of course), save for the new multilayer cloth top that promises to give the car a more upscale appearance.
Ford also says the top lowers twice as fast as before and has a sleeker profile when retracted all the while having also additional insulation which should result in a quieter cabin.
Other than that, we have the same evolutionary design, with a “shark-bite” front fascia and a trapezoidal grille that is flanked by slender headlights. The pony car also has a steeply raked windscreen, a sculpted hood, wider rear fenders and three-dimensional tri-bar taillights with sequential turn signals.
The cabin has again a familiar design that adopts higher quality materials and improved switchgear and it can now be equipped with Intelligent Access, SYNC, MyFord Touch, Track Apps, MyColor gauges and a new Shaker Pro audio system.
Just like for the coupe, at the moment three engine options have been made public: an entry-level 3.7 liter V6 with at least 300 bhp (223 kW) and 270 lb-ft (365 Nm) of torque, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder good for 305 bhp (227 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque and the range-topping Mustang GT will have a 5.0-liter V8 with 420 bhp (313 kW) and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm) of torque.
