Ford reveals facelifted convertible Mustang

Following the recent reveal of Ford’s facelifted Mustang, the American car giant has now unveiled the refreshed convertible version.

Promising ‘even better’ performance from more powerful engines and with new MagneRide suspension technology, the Mustang also has new shock absorbers for better ride control. 

Styling wise, a lower, more athletic bonnet and grille deliver a leaner look along with refined aerodynamics. New upper and lower front grilles, and a new position for bonnet vents are joined by all-LED front lights including signature lighting, low-beams, turn signals, efficient projector high-beams and available fog lamps. The rear gets revised LED tail lamps, plus a new bumper, fascia and available performance spoiler.

New technologies include a 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster which can be customised to suit, MyMode with memory function that remembers your driving preferences for the next time you drive, and new driver-assist features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection for greater confidence behind the wheel.

The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine has improved performance, says Ford and the 5.0-litre V8 has been upgraded while an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission result in ‘even better’ performance.

With a full fabric outer layer and inner headliner, sandwiched in between these layers is an insulation pad that makes the convertible 'nearly as quiet inside' with the top up as the fastback, according to Ford. Lowering the roof, a centre-mounted single latch offers quick one-handed operation right from the driver’s seat. The electromechanical drive system raises or lowers the roof in half the time required previously and uses an electric drive system - quieter than the previous-generation's electro-hydraulic design.
