For many drivers, this is the perfect companion of the American dream, if you own your house, have a great job, a family and a Ford Mustang, then you made it!  For those who love sport look and a strong engine the mustang is a dream car.  The price goes around $35,000 and up, very good price for such an iconic car. For some, especially those proud to be Americans, the mustang is more appealing and “cool” than a Ferrari, porche, or Lamborghini, with the advantage of such a low price for such a strong engine and sporty look.

The 2017 Mustang Premium Convertible was developed for adrenaline-pumping performance. Its 2.3L GTDI I-4 Engine kicks out 310 hp and 320 lb.-ft. of torque and is one of four Mustang engines. All designed to transmit the senses with pulse-raising torque and a strong roar. The 2017 Mustang Convertible top provides quick and quiet operation. It features a center latch to make opening and closing from the driver’s seat easier. Mustang singles out with its high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps with signature LED lighting and LED tri-bar taillamps with the famous Mustang sequential turn signals.

This model is equipped with Launch Control (advanced system that provides excellent torque balance, grip and acceleration, so one can drive like the pros), Electronic Line-Lock (keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes, letting accelerate to spin and warm up the rear tires to enhance grip) and Selectable Drive Modes.



The 2.3L EcoBoost engine provides 310 hp and 320 lb.-ft. of torque. Perfectly sized twin-scroll turbocharger separates the exhaust runners in two chambers that run directly to the turbine. This gives high-pulse energy to the turbine wheel, providing immediate time-to-torque.
