With the polar vortex fresh in the minds of Autoblog's Detroit-based staff, we're finding it funny that any manufacturer would choose January in the Motor City to show off a new and highly anticipated convertible to the general media and public for the first time. But Ford has done just that, giving us our first real peek at the new Mustang Convertible in the flesh.

The new Mustang Convertible is more or less unchanged from the standard coupe, with some subtle styling tweaks to accommodate the retractable soft top. Engine and transmission choices are identical to the hardtop, although we should expect slightly lower performance due to the hardware for the roof. Like the coupe, neither prices nor performance metrics have been published yet for the convertible.

      Sunday I saw the 2015 Mustang Convertible in the Ford display at Barret Jackson in Scottsdale. Not sure the Detroit Auto Show was the "first time" it was being shown. It was sunny and a warm 75 degrees, the convertible seemed pretty natural there. I like a lot of the lines of this car. And the 2.3L Ecoboost option might be the best of both worlds.

      It was sitting on a spinning pedestal at CES for all of last week. I wouldn't really say that this is the first time that it was shown. The area where it was at CES wasn't even industry/press only, it was a wholly public, hugely trafficked area.

      What's this guy complaining about? There are plenty of southern states that are currently enjoying convertible weather. In fact, states that are most popular with the Ford Mustang.

        Not to mention NAIAS is typically when Ford releases the Mustang Convertibles.

      Why is the timing poor, it is an indoor car show to show off new models and that has nothing to do with the weather outside. Im sure they were not telling potential customers to buy one today and put the top down and let your face freeze and enjoy the fresh polar breeze!

      LOL this Mustang is UGLY! Its an opinion.. Ford boys dont kill me. But it looks like THREE different cars pushed together. Lots going on and nothing looks elegant. It reminds me of an American Bodybuilder in Europe wearing a size small shirt when hes really a double XL. Weird analogy but it just looks silly. Fusion convertible.. YUCK!

        That's not a weird analogy, but it's a bad one, since it's actually very well proportioned. Your comparison to the Fusion only confirms that its proportions are good. It was the outgoing Mustang that had weird proportions, being entirely too heavy at the overhangs. It can compete on an equal footing with Jags and Beamers without being too mulletted.

      The coupe is mundane but this is like a bar of soap. And that big sperm whale face is far too massive for the rest of the car, especially without a greenhouse.

        You love to bash Ford, this is the second time I see you posting a comment shaming Ford, yet you have no clue of how to claim a statement and back it up with facts. Both the f-150 and Mustang are major game changers. Go back to your cave.

        You know, for some reason you seem to always bash the design aspects of any vehicle you don't seem to like. Seriously, unless you work for Pininfarina or even Bertone then I suugest you shut up.

      I don't want to live in a world where debuting a convertible at the Detroit Auto Show is inappropriate, unless it's the PT cruiser.

      Wow. A 2 door Fusion...and a convertible no less! I predict that there will be a run on 2013's!

      Arn't these like 9-10 months away from being sold? I don't know why Ford is showing them so early other than the 50th ann. date. It would be different if they were going on sale in a couple months.
