Car video reviews:

Body style: Coupé (two-door)
Segment: Coupe

The fifth generation of the Ford Mustang was unveiled in 2004 for the 2005 model year in coupe and convertible body versions.

There are just a few iconic American cars in automotive history: Jeep, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Corvette. While the Jeep was the only real off-road contender in the U.S. market, the other two claimed their trophies on the drag-strips and many races around official tracks. While the Corvette evolved as a supercar, the Mustang was the affordable sports car built as a comfortable daily driver and, in some versions, a fierce contender on handling tracks.

Ever since its introduction in 1964, the original pony-car was famous for its rear-cab design. Over time, its fame star started to vanish, but the 2004 model might be considered a true rebirth of the iconic coupe. Like its predecessor, it was not available as a three-box version anymore.

The design team took its inspiration from the original version and adopted the round headlights. Like the original 'Stang, the 2005 model featured a flat, vertical front fascia with a black grille and separate headlights casings. As an option, the fog-lights were installed in the grille. From the sides, the roofline followed the same line as the original fastback version from the late '60s. In the back, the three vertical taillights followed the same retro-design pattern.

Inside, there was more of a modern design than the retro-inspired one but still kept the chromed rings around the tachometer and speedometer. Ford installed up to date bucket seats with headrests and a wide center console with cup-holders. In the back, there was a bench for not too tall passengers.

For the initial launch, the Mustang featured only a 4.0-liter and a 4.6-liter V8 engine choice.
