Driving The 2019 Ford Mustang GT Convertible Was A California Dream
Reaching toward that familiar dash, I push the start button and the Coyote rumbles to life. Its lively burble is always a welcome accompaniment, but it’s about to earn an even more prominent place as the soundtrack of my drive. Turning the handle and pushing a single button, the windows roll down and the top drops quicker than an NMRA Renegade racer covers the quarter mile.
In about seven seconds, the California sun envelops the cabin and I flick a switch on the dash to put the Active Valve Performance Exhaust in Sport mode. Pulling away from my hotel, I merge with the traffic. Soon enough I am rolling down Sunset Boulevard past so many iconic locations. Surrounding the 2019 Ford Mustang GT convertible, are the usual high-end SUVs and hybrid fuel sippers. I see a few more supercars than usual as well, but the Mustang still turns heads.
