Beginning this week, 2015 Mustang Convertibles will begin shipping to dealers nationwide as per a Ford Press Release.
"Cold weather may have come unseasonably early this year, but with available heated seats, remote start and selectable drive modes with a snow/wet setting, Mustang is the perfect offering for the season,” said Melanie Banker, Mustang brand manager.
While many parts of the US and all of Canada are currently draped in dreary cold and snow, which may not inspire the greatest confidence in convertabling at this time of year, Ford wants you to believe they have you covered.
Heated seats are standard on all premium Mustang Convertibles as are Selectable driving modes, featuring a wet/snow setting that retards throttle response, steering effort and traction control to suit the conditions. Remote start is standard on all automatic transmissioned S550's.
While the PR rhetoric from Banker may be that “Mustangs are made for year-round practicality and enjoyment, so it’s exciting that customers are taking delivery of their convertible Mustang models – regardless of the season,” the Mustang is no snowmobile. Me thinks the winter launch was premeditated to curb demand during these early stages, allowing them to stockpile accordingly for the anticipated spring rush.
