The Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible Is A Perfect Car For The Summer

It’s hard to think about summer without thinking about road-tripping to relaxing places outside of the city. Those hot summer days, those hours spent on the road you don’t want just any car. You want an experience. You want a convertible. What are you looking for with the remaining days of summer, you want a Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible.

I mean, what’s more fun than a Ford Mustang in the summer? It has cult classic written all over it.

About This Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible

This is the sixth generation of Ford Mustang design, first introduced in 2015. Despite its heavy dose of 460 horsepower, it’s very well balanced. The rumble when you start up the engine, and the roar when you accelerate gives a pure modern muscle car experience and gives you more of a connection with the car. Especially when you have the top down and rumbling through small cottage towns. With the windows and top-up, it’s more of a civilized ride with lower noise levels.

It’s powered by a 5.0L, strong V8 engine with 420 lb.-ft. of torque coming from a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Here is why we think the Ford Mustang GT Convertible is a perfect summer car.

1/ The Looks

Let’s start with the classic Americana of a Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible, especially with the most current redesign. It has the looks with homages and hints of a 1960’s and 1970’s era Mustang, my favourite era.

The car itself has such a cool factor when you see it driving down the street or parked in town. It’s hard to ignore how much fun you would have, especially if you are riding in a big, hefty SUV passing one by. It’s also one of those cars that adds to the road trip experience. Instead of saying you drove up to Muskoka for the weekend, you say ‘I took the Mustang out for a ride up north’, it just sounds that much more exciting.

2/ The Ford Mustang GT Convertible Is Fun To Drive

Stepping foot and dropping down in the seat, you automatically feel a bit more of a race car driver than a grocery getter. The driver position puts you low, which helps with the driving experience of feeling faster and speedier in the corners. It’s also very fun to handle with lots of power and roar from the engine, every time you hit the accelerator. Whether you are just starting your trip or stuck in cottage traffic going north or south, it’s still great to be in a Mustang.

3/ The Passionate Mustang Community

The Mustang community is one of the most passionate car communities out there. I first witnessed this when I was driving the Ford Bullitt Mustang a few years ago. Every Mustang I passed, I either got a nod, a wave, a compliment or a question about the car at a stoplight. It’s almost like when you buy a Mustang, you are also buying into a big community of car lovers.

I have been looking for other communities in other sporty cars and I haven’t been able to find anything close on a daily basis. It’s a similar feeling to being on a boat in cottage country, where you are being acknowledged and waving back at other boats and people in town. It’s a fantastic feeling.

4/ Having A Convertible In The Summer Time

I feel like this is more self-explanatory, but I would like to reiterate, that convertibles are wonderful in the summer, especially this one. Sure, you can’t carry a paddle board on the rack or bike on the back of the car, but you trade that off for a great driving experience. All of a sudden you go from enduring a boring commute to enjoying a fun ride. It changes your mindset about the whole going from ‘A-to-B’ situation and makes you forget out long the trip felt as well.

5/ Lots of Power When You Need It

If you happened to find yourself in a Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible like I was lucky to test, you will enjoy lots of horsepower for those winding roads and highway drives. When you go through a tunnel, start it up in a busy place, or just accelerate to pass someone looking for the left-most lane, you have a lot of power, roar and rumble with you. It’s a fun feeling that puts a smile on your face even when you turn on the car and hear that initial rumble. You feel like it’s going to be a different kind of day when you start it up.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking at your driveway and you have cars there that are more people carriers than something you can enjoy, then I would consider adding a Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible to it. Just as a good boat can make a difference on the lake, a good pair of skis can make a difference on the mountain, a great convertible can make a difference between a bland and fun summer.

The Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible provides that wonderfully fun driving experience. It’s a convertible, not an SUV trying to be fun or a family car trying to be cool, the Mustang is that pure, fun, modern muscle car.

Take one for a test drive and enjoy the ‘whoa’ factor of it. Who knows, it may be just what you are looking for to soak in the last few weeks of summer.

Pricing starts at $56,745 CAD MSRP.
