2005 Ford Mustang - Price Quote

Visit Ford for more information on the Ford Mustang.

The 2005 Ford Mustang is all-new, having undergone a comprehensive redesign. This has been a lot more than just a facelift, with an extended wheelbase (6-inches longer) for better stance, balance and overall interior room, a subsequent interior redesign with improved head room, leg room and hip room and new exterior styling that evokes the classic 1960 styling that put the Mustang on the map in the first place.
To go with this, Ford has given the pony car two new, more powerful engines and a host of related performance changes to handle the power including a state-of-the-art chassis, advanced MacPherson struts, upgraded brakes and much more.

The new Ford Mustang also has an industry-first color-configurable instrument cluster option available. Drivers can personalize the dashboard backlight color in one of 125 colors.

Available Models
The 2005 Ford Mustang is offered in V6 and V8 Deluxe and Premium trims, each with slightly more generous standards packages.

Interior Features
The 2005 Ford Mustang continues to be offered as a two-door coupe and a two-door convertible, both of which seat four adults. The base model V6 Deluxe includes air conditioning, power windows and door locks, tilt steering column, full-length center floor console, remote keyless entry and interval windshield wipers as well as an AM/FM/CD player.

A move to the V6 Premium adds 6-way powered front seats and an improved stereo system that is MP3 capable. The next step up, to V8 Deluxe, takes that progression a bit further while a move to the top-level V8Premium adds leather upholstery, top-end audio and power lumbar adjustment.

Options include an interior upgrade package with satin aluminum trim and MyColor custom instrument panel and an interior color accent package with red seats and door inserts contrasted by a black interior.

Exterior Features
The new Ford Mustang has the signature long hood and short rear deck accompanied by C-scoops in the sides, three-element tail lamps and the galloping horse badge in the center of the grille. The shark-like nose echoes the 1967 model while the jeweled, round headlamps sit in trapezoidal housings.

The 2005 Ford Mustang has more power, whether you choose the V6 or the V8. The V6 has is a 4-liter SOHC that pumps out 210-horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque while the 4.6-liter all-aluminum V-8 with three-valve heads offers 300 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque and is capable of 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds. Both engine choices come with either automatic or manual transmissions.

The V8 comes with traction control, 4-wheel antilock brakes, and low-profile 235/55ZR17 high-speed tires on bright alloy wheels. A rear spoiler and fog lights add to the go-fast style details.

Safety and Security
Dual front airbags, advanced safety belts with outboard pretensioners, a theft-deterrent system and the LATCH child seat system are standard. Also available are antilock brakes and traction control, both standard features on V8 models. Optional safety extras include seat-mounted front-side airbags.
