2019 "Need For Green" Ford Mustang GT Convertible Review (FordNXT)
Business With The Top Up & Fun With The Top Down In A 2019 Drop-top.
When you drive a car for a while, it’s easy to forget it’s special. Until, that is, someone reminds you…
“I am sorry to tell you that is a nice color on your car,” the cashier said sheepishly. “No need to be sorry, it is pretty cool,” I replied. After all, this is a 2019 Mustang GT sprayed in Need For Green. This car stands out from a mile away, and the color just collected compliments everywhere I went with it, just as Ford promised.
“This is a color Mustang fans will celebrate because of its confident and youthful attitude,” Barbara Whalen, Ford color and materials manager, said when the color debuted. “Need For Green is vibrant and jumps out at you, giving Mustang owners a look that definitely stands out in a crowd.”
Like choosing such a standout color, the choice to buy a convertible was far more deliberate in the old days. There were trade-offs in performance and driveability that had to be outweighed by the feeling of dropping the top and collecting those compliments. No matter the color, a Mustang convertible still makes people green with envy, but no longer does it mean that you have completely given up on performance.
