Regular readers of The Garage will know from our review of the 2010 Ford Mustang GT, but Ford announced this week that the Glass Roof option will again be available on both Base and GT Mustangs as a $1,995USD option. The glass roof offers incomparable amounts of year round sunshine in a way a moonroof cannot. Doubters be warned-the car is hardly like sitting in a sauna when the weather turns hot. Ford engineers claim the glass roof filters 90% of heat (infra-red) rays, and 96% of sun burn causing UV rays, or the equivalent of wearing SPF 50 sun screen.
The Glass Roof became an option on the Mustang in 2008, and since then Ford claims that 10% of all Mustangs are sold with this option. Ford sees the popularity of glass roofs on the rise, and now offers Glass Roof as an option on the Flex, Edge, and the Lincoln MKZ and MKS.
