2009 - Glass Roof Mustang highlights the 45th Anniversary of Mustang

  • Roof options: A segment-first a factory-installed glass roof option was available on both the V-6 and GT models.
  • Added extras: The "Premium" array now included ambient lighting, satin aluminum instrument panel trim, interior upgrades and SIRIUS ® Satellite Radio.
  • Style selections: "Bullitt" and "Warriors in Pink" packages continued in 2009.

Ford Mustang celebrated its 45th anniversary with a new panoramic glass roof option. The segment first, factory-installed glass roof was available as a $1,995 option on Mustang V-6 and GT models.

"Our new panoramic glass roof will allow owners to enjoy the outdoors year-round from the comfort of their Mustang," said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president for Global Product Development. "It's one more feature that sets Mustang apart from the competition."

Three Roof Choices -
The glass roof joined the coupe and convertible to give Mustang customers three roof choices. It also addressed the fact that 62 percent of buyers in the sports car segment were interested in a sunroof or moonroof on their next vehicle, according to J.D. Power and Associates research.

  • It allowed occupants an unrestricted view of the world above and around them, but the special tinted, reflective glass reduced energy used by the vehicle's air conditioning system by 20 percent and also protected the interior fabric from fading and deteriorating. A manually operated roller blind allowed owners to block the light on bright days.
  • Noise, vibration and harshness are controlled in the cabin with a layer of sound absorbent vinyl sandwiched within the special glass.
  • The glass-roof Mustang is built like the coupe and was developed to maintain the structural integrity of the car. "We want to offer this feature to customers while maintaining the quality and safety of the vehicle that we've been recognized externally for," said Paul Randle, Mustang chief engineer.

More Standard Equipment

  • For 2009, Ford added more standard equipment to the popular "Premium" arrays offered on both the Mustang V-6 and GT, which included SIRIUS® Satellite Radio, ambient lighting, satin aluminum instrument panel trim and upgraded interior trim.
  • A new, optional GT Security Package included an active anti-theft system and wheel locking kit and Brilliant Silver clearcoat metallic joined the list of available Mustang exterior colors.
  • Other highlights included: Standard front-seat side air bags; dual-stage driver and front passenger air bags; safety-belt pretensioners; passenger seat sensing; crash severity sensing. Available High Intensity Discharge headlamps. 18-inch wheel offering on V-6 coupe. Available customizable instrument panel allowing mix-and-match lighting at the touch of a button.

Power Teams

  • The Mustang V-6 coupe and convertible were equipped with a 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter SOHC 6-cylinder engine that is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed automatic.
  • The Mustang GT coupe and convertible were powered by a 300-horsepower, 4.6-liter 3V V-8 engine. The standard gearbox is 5-speed manual, with an available 5-speed automatic.

Warriors in Pink Returns

The 2009 model year also marked the return of the "Warriors in Pink" package, which was designed to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Ford doubled its contributions this year to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure to $500 for each "Warriors in Pink" Mustang sold.

  • Available on the Mustang V-6 "Premium" coupe and convertible models, the "Warriors in Pink" package added a pink ribbon and pony fender badge, pink Mustang rocker tape striping, charcoal leather trimmed seats with pink stitching, an aluminum-spoke steering wheel with pink stitching and charcoal floormats with pink ribbon and contrast stitching. Three body colors were available: black, metallic silver and performance white.
  • The development of the "Warriors in Pink" package took on a special meaning for the entire Mustang Team as they watched one of their own battle breast cancer and survive. Mustang program manager Jackie Marshall DiMarco was diagnosed with breast cancer while working on the special model.

"Being on Team Mustang is a special experience because we are all enthusiasts at heart. And I was thrilled to be part of the Warriors in Pink project knowing that we would be contributing to the Cure," said DiMarco. "The shock of my own diagnosis while working on this project highlighted to me how any of us can be affected when we least expect it, and how important it is to work together to heighten awareness, support the courageous women fighting the disease, and ultimately find the Cure.

Other Interesting Facts:

  • The seats in all 2009 Mustangs were made with foam comprised of 5 percent soy-derived materials in place of petroleum-based products. Earlier in 2009, Ford announced plans to push that figure to 40 percent in the near future for foam used in seats and head rests.
  • The 2009 Mustang, including Bullitt and Warriors in Pink models, will be built at AutoAlliance International in Flat Rock, Mich.
