Body Styles (compare years, go back to 2005 summary information)



The redesigned 2005 Mustang celebrates the 40th anniversary of the iconic car with a retro design that evokes elements from 40 years ago. The front grille, the rear tail lights, the side windows, and the galloping horse badge are all reminiscent of the classic Mustangs from 1964 to 1968. The new Mustang also offers modern features and performance, such as powerful engines, a color-configurable instrument panel, and GT options for both the coupe and convertible body styles.

The front grille of the new Mustang is slightly slanted forward to suggest a forward jetting hood, just like the original models. The recessed round headlights are separated from the grille by a color-keyed integrated body panel, and the turn signals are located lower in the bumper. The optional fog lamps are mounted in the grille field, and the center of the grille features the Mustang galloping horse badge. These design elements create a distinctive and aggressive look for the new Mustang.

The rear of the new Mustang also pays homage to the past with three separate tail lights that do not wrap around to the sides, a simulated center gas cap badge, and no large recessed "MUSTANG" letters. The rear design is simple and elegant, emphasizing the car's sleek and sporty profile. The side coves are less pronounced than the 2004 model, and there is no simulated wheel air scoop at the end. However, the smaller rear quarter windows set apart from the door windows bring back elements of the fastback body line that was popular in the 1960s.

The new Mustang does not compromise on performance and technology. It offers two powerful engines: a 208hp, 4.0 liter, V6; and a 300hp, 4.6 liter, V8. The interior options include a color-configurable instrument panel that allows the driver to select more than 125 different background colors with a touch of a button. The GT options are available for both the coupe and convertible body styles, adding more features and enhancements to the already impressive car. The new Mustang is manufactured in Flat Rock, Michigan, instead of Dearborn, Michigan, where it was produced for 40 years.

The redesigned 2005 Mustang is a tribute to the car's legacy and a showcase of its innovation. It combines design elements from 40 years ago with modern features and performance to create a car that is both nostalgic and futuristic. The new Mustang is a car that appeals to both old and new generations of drivers who appreciate its style and power.
