From Ford press: Introduced more than 35 years ago, the Ford Mustang has earned its place as a true American icon. Mustang is available in two body styles, coupe and convertible. Mustang is the No.1-selling convertible in the United States.
For 2002, high-tech sound systems boost the performance of Mustang’s cabin environment. Audiophiles will be delighted with the option of a speed-sensitive, Mach 1000 audio system with a 6-disc, In-dash CD Changer. The Mach 1000 delivers 570-watts RMS (1,140-watts peak power) with a 60-watt parametrically equalized amplifier, six 85-watt subwoofer amplifiers, four subwoofer speakers, four midrange tweeters and two 10-inch, trunk-mounted, acoustic suspension subwoofer enclosures.
Mustang also is available with an MP3 CD-player that plays regular or MP3 CDs with bit rates of 56K to 320 bps.
The high-volume V-6 Mustang adds appeal with standard 16-inch bright aluminum wheels with exposed lugs.
The standard Mustang engine is a 3.8-liter OHV V-6, producing 193 horsepower at 5,550 rpm and 228 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,800 rpm. The engine features split-port induction, which helps optimize fuel economy, along with enhanced-flow cylinder heads and anti-friction piston coatings.
GT models have a standard 4.6-liter SOHC V-8 that produces 260 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 302 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine features large valves, equal-length intake manifold runners, and cams with high lift and long duration to increase engine air intake for increased horsepower. A coil-on-plug ignition system provides improved ignition control for more consistent starting.
