While those who plan on taking their 2015 Mustang to the track will likely opt for the lighter and less complex coupe rather than the soft-top convertible, plenty of Mustang customers would much rather enjoy their ponies on the open road with the top down. And man does the 2015 Mustang deliver for those customers: not only is the cabin of the new Mustang convertible quieter than the outgoing model with the roof up, but its top is also (more than) twice as quick to come down or come up when compared to the current 2014 Mustang. That much you may have already heard. But what you might now have seen is the new pony’s soft top in action, as demonstrated in the short video below.
Putting the roof down starts off by unlatching the top and then using the electronic control to put it down. The same is true, in opposite order, for the reverse motion, as well. So to say that the new top is quicker than before would definitely be true, but it also might be an understatement — because the new top is really that fast, maybe even faster than Ford’s original “twice as fast as before” claim.
