The 2015 Ford Mustang V6 and GT Convertible is a sexier, slicker and more fun car to drive than previous models that are currently on the road. Get behind the wheel of the new Mustang and you’ll feel it; the car begs to be driven and can’t wait for you to take press down on the pedal, releasing its intense energy and flood of power. The car will take you from 0 -60 mph in about 6 seconds, but it gets so much better after that.
The Ford Mustang V6 is intriguing from the first look. The body sits down lower and has a bit more width, giving it a more aerodynamic shape. The roof is also a bit lower and sexier, sidling down to the front bumper. The LED headlights and tail lights have a new twist; they’re three slashes that light up one by one in the direction the car is about to turn. A small detail, but one that leaves a lasting impression. The overall styling is classic and playful but clearly meant for a serious driver. Also, the wheels are completely modifiable, so don’t be put off if the wheels on the showroom floor aren’t what you had in mind. This car comes with tons of options and lots of great features.
2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Interior
The real adventure starts with the interior, a space inspired by the cockpit of a Mustang fighter jet, and the references to flight are a great tough. Your MPH has been renamed Ground Speed and RPM now stands for Revolutions per Minute. The divers seat is lower and more comfortable with more room for knees below the smaller, easy-to-control steering wheel. A full-color control screen above the steering wheel is controlled with toggle switches on the wheel itself. There’s also a push-button start in the center of the car and manual shift with an extra heel-toe downshift to make gear changes smoother.
And of course, the top comes down. The convertible top is locked in place with a handle in the interior roof of the car. It turns to unlock the top, then a button right next to it takes the top back and away in about 10 seconds. The whole operation is buttery soft and whisper smooth, helping your aerodynamic drive take you up into the sky.
There are a lot more great features nestled in to the front of the car, but first I want to mention the keychain. The keys come with a push-button start on the key chain which allows the driver to unlock the car and get it started from across the parking lot. Once inside, the driver has access to the Blind Spot Information System, (BLIS) that helps the car back up and keeps an eye out for cross traffic. There are also voice commands to help you make a call and you can sync your phone to your car’s system so that it can play your favorite music and read you your text messages. And that’s just a small taste of all the tech toys you get to play with every time you drive this car.
