2005 Ford Mustang Spec Explorer
Design elements from 40 years ago come back in the redesigned 2005, 40th anniversary Mustang. Mustang attitude from the 1964 to 1968 grille is back from its slightly slanted forward design to suggest a forward jetting hood, recessed round headlights separated from the grille by a color-keyed integrated body panel, separate turn signals lower in the bumper, optional fog lamps mounted in the grille field, and the Mustang galloping horse badge in the center. The rear has the three separate tail lights which do not wrap around to the sides, a simulated center gas cap badge, and no large recessed "MUSTANG" letters to remind us that this is a Mustang. The side coves are less pronounced than the 2004 and there is no simulated wheel air scoop at the end, but smaller rear quarter windows set apart from the door windows brings back elements of the fastback body line. Only two engines are available but they are the powerful 208hp, 4.0 liter, V6; and the 300hp, 4.6 liter, V8. The interior options include color-configurable instrument panel where a touch of a button can select more than 125 different background colors. GT options are available for both the coupe and convertible body styles. With this redesign comes a change in manufacturing location from 40 years in Dearborn, Michigan, to new facilities 20 miles south in Flat Rock, Michigan.
