During the recent Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminar, Ford showed off a number of new technologies it has developed with its supplier partners. Some of this tech is debuting on the 2015 Mustang.
â€œAs part of our One Ford plan, our suppliers are critical to creating profitable growth for all,â€ Hau Thai-Tang, group vice president, Ford Global Purchasing, said. â€œWith the industryâ€™s highest product refresh rates, commitment to product excellence and innovation, and clear brand positioning, Ford is a preferred customer with the supply base.â€
Among the new Mustang technologies are hydro-formed roof rails and A-pillars and louvered glass quarter windows. While the quarter windows are definitely slick, the hydro-formed steel roof parts actually improve the carâ€™s stiffness and maximize headroom.
â€œMany technologies on the road today were developed as a result of our supplier relationships,â€ Hau said. â€œWe will continue to strive to be our suppliersâ€™ customer of choice through our continued new product introductions and emphasis on technology excellence.â€
While the new tech is definitely cool, it also gives us a good reason to show off these videos that Ford released of the 2015 Mustang 50 Years Limited Edition:
Of course, you will be able to bid on and potentially win the last one of these created at the Barrett-Jackson auction in September. You could also try to win one by purchasing a ticket from this raffle by August 13.

I can see those quarter windows being very popular.
Hopefully they won’t be too tough to install.
This is really growing on me! Nice write up.
I think they will grow on everyone when they are rolling down the street, lowered, and wearing aftermarket wheels.
I would buy them in a heartbeat.
