There was a significant restyling
Although the SVO Mustangs were gone,
a lot of their parts found their way to lesser Mustangs.
All Mustangs received the SVO drooped nose, and thus
breathing was from under the front bumper.
Headlights were changed to the former SVOs aero-headlamps
with halogen bulbs.
In addition, GTs now came with
the SVO's quad-shock rear axle suspension
Ford perfected its electronic fuel
injection (EFI) system on the 5.0 V8, resulting in
a gain to 225 bhp.
The 3.8 litre V6 was dropped, leaving
a significant gap between the entry level 4 cylinder
engine and the V8. A five speed manual transmission
was standard on all models.
Visually, the GT differed
from the base LX model with multilouvered taillights,
front and rear air dams, and side-aerodynamic
with scoops to front and rear brakes.
The former three door sedans were now
called two door hatchbacks.
