In this article we will touch on some of the key aspects of what makes the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang ,known as the S197, so special!

The Classic Look Has Returned!

Ford's design team developed an all-new platform, the first in 25 years, and created an all-new design full of retro aspects from the Mustang's past. This new S197 platform had exterior features reminiscent of the 1967-1969 Mustangs, while other elements recall 1965 Mustangs, like the triangular side windows, fastback roofline and taillights. This redesign didn't stop at the exterior, the interior and performance received a major upgrade as well. Ford added the dual-hooded dash and aluminum accent panels, big instruments, circular vents and a round steering wheel hub to bring the retro look together. Some of the modern performance upgrades included new suspension components, bigger brakes and upgraded engines!
