The Ford Mustang is reinvented once again, revealed to the public in new form on September 3, 1998. Sweeping hood, side scoops and short rear deck reminisce, while crisp, beveled edges suggest the Mustang of the future. Improved engine design increases available horsepower in both the V6 and V8 Mustangs. A new traction control system is introduced, and revised suspension refines ride characteristics.
