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. The Mustang also is available with an MP3 CD-player that plays regular or MP3 CDs with bit rates of 56K to 320 bps.
The 2002 Mustang retains key styling cues from the original. The traditional chromed pony and corral emblem adorns the grille, while the vertical tail lamps feature the signature tri-bar design. Interior cues include the traditional dual cockpit design.
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. Combustion chambers are shaped for optimum power and fuel efficiency. aluminium upper main, upper thrust and rod bearings help to improve engine durability. The Mustang GT uses the Tremec TR3650 manual transmission with a new 5th gear ratio for improved fuel economy.
The engine has been recalibrated for 2002 to meet emissions regulations. An electronic returnless fuel system uses a high-pressure pump to deliver fuel directly to the injectors at variable pressure, adjusted to meet the precise demand. Eliminating the fuel return line from the engine to the fuel tank reduces fuel tank vapor and evaporative emissions.
