2010 Ford Mustang with glass roof

The new, sleeker 2010 Ford Mustang definitely cleans up a few of the previous model's rough edges, but so far there have been at least two major omissions in the 2010 lineup: no glass roof and no convertible. But just in time for the sort of weather that requires them, Ford has stepped up with both.

The glass roof, first available in 2008, is made of tinted privacy glass and features a built-in manual roller blind. The tint makes the glass roof option ideal for those who love the sun but want to cut back on heat, interior fading and the need for sunblock, as only 10% of the sun's harmful rays get through its silvery coating.

The reflective glass also cuts the energy used by the vehicle's air conditioner system. To help improve acoustics and Mustang’s interior quietness the glass also features a vinyl layer to minimize NVH.

The glass roof option – which is available as a $1,995 option on both the V6 model and the GT – has accounted for 10% of all Mustang sales since its debut, and is expected to perform about the same for the new car.

The GT convertible, on the other hand, accounts for 25% of Mustang sales, and sells best in California, Florida, Texas and Georgia - sunny, hot-weather states that appreciate style as much as speed. Powertrain and options are the same as for the GT coupe.

Both the glass roof and the convertible can be ordered now at any Ford dealership in the U.S.
