Body Styles (compare years, see more 1982 style information including Special Models)


Coupe

Hatchback

In 1982, Mustang reintroduced the GT and the 5.0-liter engine. The GT featured a forward-opening hood scoop that was non-functional and a redesigned front grille with two horizontal louvers extending in front of the vertical slats. With the lighter Fox body style and the new 157-hp 302ci engine, the GT recorded the fastest zero-to-60 mph time of any American car in 1982. To appeal to European customers, Mustang renamed the options packages of the hatchbacks and coupes with European model nomenclature. The base version was renamed L, GL with a few upgrades, GLX with many of the luxury upgrades which replaced the previous year's Ghia, and GT which was only offered as a hatchback. Exterior colors remained relatively unchanged from 1981; however, a light Opal replaced the golden Caramel interior, and all Ford engine blocks were now painted light gray.

Engine Data (compare years, see more 1982 performance information)

Gross Horsepower was measured using a blueprinted test engine running on a stand without accessories, mufflers, or emissions control devices. In 1971-2 automakers began to specify power in terms of SAE Net Horsepower (as defined by standard J1349). Net Horsepower is measured with the engine in "as-installed trim", with all accessories and standard intake and exhaust systems. This was done to reduce the advertised power for insurance rates and to account for different approaches to emission reduction equipment.
