Ford has announced that its 2015 Ford Mustang convertible will begin shipping to Ford dealerships across the United States this week.

The 2015 Mustang convertible is available for a base price of $29,925, including an $825 destination fee.

"Keys to the first 2015 Ford Mustang convertibles will be in customers' hands shortly," the automaker said in a release on its company site.

Since the new Mustang is being released for the beginning of winter, Ford mentioned that selectable drive modes, which come standard for all Mustang convertibles, will feature a wet/snow setting designed to tweak throttle response, steering effort and traction control to "mitigate wheel spin and maximize vehicle control."

"Cold weather may have come unseasonably early this year, but with available heated seats, remote start and selectable drive modes with a snow/wet setting, Mustang is the perfect offering for the season," said Melanie Banker, Mustang brand manager, according to the Ford release.

Remote start is standard on all automatic-transmission vehicles and heated seats are standard on all Mustang convertibles.

The remote start option doesn't just heat up the engine, but also the interior of the vehicle to make sure customers stay warm even when the temperature drops.

"Mustangs are made for year-round practicality and enjoyment," said Banker in a company statement. "So it's exciting that customers are taking delivery of their convertible Mustang models, regardless of the season."

Ford's new Mustang convertible option competes for sales against the likes of the 2015 Nissan 370Z convertible and the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro convertible. The Volkswagen Beetle convertible is also a popular model.

More than 9.2 million Mustangs have been purchased since the vehicle first debuted back in 1964.

Ford said this week that the all-new base Mustang is turning on U.S. dealer lots in an average of eight days, making it one of the most popular cars available.
