117-hp 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder
At this point, the Capri was Mercury's version of the Mustang, sharing the same platform and engine options. So why does it deserve mention here after just seeing the 'Stang? Just look at it.
You could have got this turbocharged 2.3-liter mill in the Mustang, too, but Mercury decided to really dress it up by adding a bulging hood and body-color exterior accents. The result looks pretty good for the period until you find out this thing only makes 117 hp and 135 lb-ft. This machine is a real sheep in wolf's clothing.
Ford didn't give up in the turbo 2.3, though. Later, the Special Vehicle Operations team got ahold of it and extensive tuning pushed the output as high as 205 hp in the Mustang SVO.
