Ford Mustang Glass Roof

According to a survey conducted by JD Power and Associates, 62% of owners of sports car are interested in a sunroof. So, Ford decided to feature a sunroof on the Mustang, but when you want to stay ahead of the future competition, you have to innovate. Here is the new glass roof option which will be available in next Summer.

Mustang’s Glass Roof is made of tinted privacy glass, which reduces both infrared rays and vehicle cool-down time by 50 percent. A manual roller blind is built in, allowing owners to further control exposure on sunny days. To help improve acoustics and Mustang’s interior quietness, the glass also features a layer of vinyl that reduces noise, vibration and harshness. The technology will cost the owner $1,995. It's less expensive but expensive enough to be a stumbling block at the time to sign the order form.

With sales down since the beginning of the year, let's hope this new option will boost sales while waiting for the new model.
