New to 1982, was the Mustang GLX which replaced the previous years luxury Ghia options package. By 1982 the Mustang model mix had shifted with a range that included four models with the GT being the top for performance and the GLX for luxury. The GLX could be had with the full range of engines that were available in Mustangs at the time, but a new 3.8 L V6 had become the most popular configuration. It was also available in notchback or hatchback body styles. The GLX was a successful concept for the Mustang and eventually evolved into the LX that would become the enthusiast favorite due to its V8 availability and slightly lighter weight over the spoilered and ground effected GT.
