7. The 1994-1995 Mustang GT
The fourth generation Ford Mustang is an automobile produced by American manufacturer Ford for the 1994 through 2004 model years. For 1994 the Ford Mustang underwent its first major redesign in fifteen years. The design, code named “SN-95” by Ford, was based on an updated version of the Fox platform.
It featured styling by Bud Magaldi that incorporated some stylistic elements from the classic Mustangs. For a time in Mustang’s history people thought the name might be dead, but Ford executive John Coletti proved everyone wrong with the 1994-1995 Mustang GT’s. It got the Ford Mustang back out on the market and excited car enthusiasts from all over. It also proved you cannot get rid of the beast of muscle.
The base Mustang featured a 3.8 L OHV V6 mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional AODE 4-speed automatic transmission. The V6 produced 145 hp (108 kW; 147 PS) at 4000 rpm and 215 lb•ft (292 N•m) of torque at 2500 rpm. The powertrain went on many revisions through out its production year.
