2005 Mustang

The standard engine is a 60-degree 4.0-liter SOHC V-6. It replaces the 3.8-liter 90-degree pushrod engine in the 2004 model. The 210-horsepower, 240 pound-feet engine - gains of 23 horsepower and 15 pound-feet over 2004 - is inherently smoother and more compact, providing more power and torque. They come with standard 16" wheels. An Exterior Sport Appearance Package is an option, and includes a rear spoiler and sport tape stripe on the lower rocker.

Muscular new engines infuse Mustang GT with tire-smoking performance. The 4.6-liter all-aluminum V-8 has three-valve heads and cranks out 300 horsepower. Because it has an aluminum block, it weighs 75 pounds less than a comparable cast-iron design while delivering 40 more horsepower than the 2004 engine. That's more than 50 percent more power than the small-block 289-cubic-inch V-8 found in the classic 1964 model. Motor Trend ran a 2005 Mustang GT 5-speed from 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 13.5 seconds at 103 mph in the January 2005 issue. The Mustang GT comes standard with a rear spoiler, but a spoiler delete option is available. 17" wheels are standard.

The 2005 Mustang GT was selected to pace the NASCAR Nextel Cup Banquet 400 and Ford 400 in the 2004 season.

A T-5 five-speed manual transmission is standard, but for the first time, a five-speed automatic transmission is available.
