Going Topless With The 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible
So, the new Mustang? An interesting rendition of an old classic right? I mean, it’s been given a really bold new look, and a strong character to boot. The body line, the grille, the interior, the stance, all of that, and yet now there’s another subtle tweak Ford decided to make happen for all of you Blue Oval fans out there. They dropped the top, and made it perform like a champion.
So if you haven’t already guessed, we’re going to talk about the, and what’s making it so hot these days. Well, to be brutally honest, the new Mustang has been given the award winning power plants, that everyone’s talking about. The 5.0L V8 that resides under the hood of the Mustang GT is one of Ford’s best engines to date. Then you have the 3.7L V6 that has given so many Mustang fans the ability to drive fast, feel good, and save at the pump all at the same time. Now Ford has announced that they will be introducing Eco-Boost to the Mustang in hopes that it will further push the Mustang further into the spotlight than ever before. An Eco-Boost motor will allow drivers to further pursue their lofty goals of penny pinching, quick lane switching, burnout inducing pony lust, and then some.
Now, with the words of power out of the way, we look at the way the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible looks, and will potentially drive. The new Mustang convertible will receive the same suspension treatments that the hardtop has been privy to. At the front lies a MacPherson double ball joint set up that not only allows for a much more nimble cornering, but allows the tuners to slide some much bigger brake set ups behind the front wheels. At the back of this pony is what all Mustang guys have been dying for, for over the last 15 to 20 years, and that would be the brand new independent rear suspension. This new rear end is what seems to be, and what Ford has been wanting to be the ultimate equalizer when it came down the Mustang vs Camaro, or Mustang vs Corvette showdowns. Now the power can planted to the ground without fear of over rotation, pushing in the corners, or drifting when it isn’t needed. Well, actually the drifting part will be even better with the new rear end, just ask Vaughn Gitten Jr. about that one.
The bold new look of the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible has been complimented with the fact that there is no top to it. No don’t get me wrong, I’m not insulting the car by any means, but wouldn’t you say the same thing about a Lamborghini when you see it again topless? It’s a stunning piece of machinery, and deserves to be seen wherever it drives. Ford’s designers have been making sure that their cars stay relevant, and in the spotlight for all intents, and purposes. Me personally, I like the new Mustang. I haven’t seen one in person, but I’ve been driving one around in the NFS Rivals game, and that one performs rather well. Honestly, to sum it all up, we already know that the 2015 Mustang is the newest version of an American Classic, and it’s arrival has been long overdue. So for Ford to delay the convertible version of this car was something of a little genius. GM did the same thing when they dropped the new Camaro, and then waited for the right moment to bring out the Camaro drop top. It all boils down to marketing what you have so that everyone around you wants it.
