1995 Ford Mustang GT
The Mustang GT was unchanged for the 1995 model year
The Mustang GT was back for 1995 but with almost no changes to speak of. Ford was focused on creating differentiation so they launched a stipped-down GT they called the Mustang GTS. The Mustang GT had already gotten a lot of upgrades the prior year and was still a much better performance machine than prior generation GT cars.
The 1995 Mustang GT still came with the big 5.0L HO V8 engine. 1995 would mark the final year of this 5.0L 302 cid V8 as it was replaced in 1996 with the more versatile and efficient 4.6 liter modular V8. This marked the end of the Mustangs overhead-valve/pushrod-engine era. carried over from 1993. The small-block V8 engine generated 215 hp at 4200 rpm and 285 lb/ft of torque at 3400 rpm. Performance was equally impressive in the GT with zero to 60 mph taking 6.4 seconds and the quarter mile over in 15 seconds. Not a big improvement over the 1993 GT in terms of straight line performance but there was more to the story.
The 1995 Mustang GT’s handling was much improved over the previous-generation car thanks to progressive-rate springs, longer control arms, new spindles, anti-roll bars, and chassis stiffening.
