In 1985, Mustang continued to build on its legacy of power and style by upgrading its SVO turbocharged 4-cylinder engine by 30 horsepower to 205hp and improving its top 5.0L V8 engine by 35 horsepower to 210hp. This was the last year for the 145hp 4-cylinder turbo GT, as the V8 offerings had more power. The L series was dropped, making the LX the base model with the GT and SVO as upgrades. As in 1983, all models had their tires increased in size again. The grille was changed to match more with the SVO but with an open slit at the bottom. All Mustangs also had a front air dam with four rectangular holes in the center. GTs received integrated fog lamps, and the SVO received more flush headlamps. The tail lights on all models were full width with only an opening for the license plate. Sales rose again, with 156,514 cars being produced.
