Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Weathertech black cargo liner fitting the trunk of all 2015 and newer Mustangs. So in this video, I'll be going over the benefits of adding this cargo liner to your trunk from Weathertech as well as all the materials and construction that goes into it since it is mainly for protection. Now, I'll top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know up front is a very simple one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, because it's as simple as laying a mat.
The Weathertech black cargo liner will be for any 2015 or newer Mustang owner who's worried about their trunk getting dirty or even ruined from some of the outside elements, especially if they're hauling a lot of cargo. This particular cargo liner from Weathertech is coming in a black finish to keep your entire trunk liner clean. Now, what I mean by that is your factory carpeting you might be worried is gonna get ruined by the outside elements. Or if you're handling a lot of sports equipment that might be dirty and muddy, you can keep all of that off your factory liner by installing this in your trunk.
Now, obviously, when it comes to protection, materials and construction is kind of the biggest factor to come into play. Now, I'll talk about the materials in just a second. But I wanna touch on this construction here, because the shape and makeup and the design here is really gonna make a huge difference. Now, as you can see, it's got a raised lip all around the edges, and it's specifically cut into this weird shape. Now, this is specifically molded to fit your 2015 or newer Mustang trunk liner and nothing else. So this fits exactly where you need it to around every hug and curve and crevice on your trunk liner. And it's got the raised lip to make sure that all the materials and outside elements, dirt, mud, snow, what have you, is staying within the confines of this mat and doesn't go overboard to touch your liner.
In addition to that, you'll also see dozens, if not hundreds, of little squares of channels running throughout this. That's to make sure all that dirt and mud stays within this and doesn't kind of free-roam everywhere getting everything else dirty.
Now, as far as the materials go, this has a little bit of a harder rubber feel. It's made of a custom-blended thermoplastic elastomer or TPE. Now, that material basically just means it's got that rubbery feel and makes sure anything that stays within the confines of this mat will not seep through on to your liner. It'll stay here on the surface, slipping through all these channels and staying within the lip. Now, in addition to that, this is also gonna be very much wear-resistant. So it's got a longer-lasting lifetime. You don't have to worry about replacing this one if it gets ruined, because it can't.
Now, in addition that, this is also going to be UV-protected. So if it's out in the sun at all to dry, it's not something that's gonna fade or crack or anything like that. Now, the rubber actually is good to keep a lot of your cargo if you're hauling that sports equipment or anything like that with the kids off to soccer practice. All the equipment will stay here and not shift around during transit. Now, that's gonna be good, because you don't have to worry about things knocking around. Especially if there's a mess here, it won't be all rolling into it.
So one of the big bonuses that come together with this material is actually gonna be the cleanup process. Now, in addition to that rubber material, it's also gonna be very good for cleaning up, because once that mess is inside, you gotta have something to do it. So once everything, all the mess is inside, you'll pull the mat out. Obviously, you kind of want to cup it to make sure that stuff doesn't roll out. Now, once it's outside, you can toss it on to the grass, hose it right off, and it will fall right off. That's a very easy cleanup process. Pop it back in since the installation is just a few seconds.
Now. as far as the pricing goes, if you're the owner of an S550 constantly tossing stuff in your trunk, worried about your trunk liner getting ruined, I honestly think this price is going to be a very budget-friendly option and very worthwhile investment. You can pick this up for just about 130 bucks. And for all the protection you get for this for your trunk, I do think it's worth it.
I'm gonna shift gears over to the install process, which I honestly don't even think we can call it a process or even an install. Now, to get this thing installed, all you have to do is just kind of lay it into your trunk liner, put pressure on it all around, and make sure it's into place, and it's not kind of folded up. Now, as you can see here, it's kinda, you know, bent around the edges. I had to flatten this out actually to get it on the table. So once you take it out of the box, it's all rolled up. So what I would suggest doing is flipping it upside down and kind of rolling it the opposite way just to get it to flatten out a bit, maybe even leave it out in the sun for a while just to kind of flatten on its own.
Now, once that's taken care of, you can just throw it into your trunk. Honestly, just a couple of minutes to get it all settled including the time it takes to get this unfolded and rolled out. Now, overall, I give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter and just a few minutes on the install.
Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang and you're looking for a way to keep your trunk liner clean and free of the outside elements, especially when you're tossing your dirty cargo in the trunk, you might wanna check out the Weathertech black cargo liner I have with me today. And it's all available right here at americanmuscle.com.
