2004 Ford Mustang - Price Quote

Visit Ford for more information on the Ford Mustang.

The model that essentially defines the term 'pony car' celebrates its fortieth birthday in 2004, and it isn't shy about showing its age. This year, Mustang models will proudly wear special commemorative badges for all the world to see.

If you are a real Ford Mustang enthusiast, the 40th Anniversary Package is a must have. It features a special trim and other distinguishing features.

Next year will see the Mustang get a big redesign. In light of this, it's not surprising to find that there aren't too many new features offered for 2004.

Available Models
The 2004 Ford Mustang is offered in the following trims: Base Standard, Deluxe and Premium; GT Deluxe and Premium; Mach 1; and Cobra.

Interior Features
The 2004 Ford Mustang continues to be offered as a two-door coupe and a two-door convertible. Not the biggest cars out there, Mustangs seat four.

The manufacturers at Ford improved the 2004 Mustang's cabin noise by using expandable foam in key areas. Standard comfort and convenience features across the board include air conditioning, power windows and door locks, tilt steering column, full-length center floor console, remote keyless entry and interval windshield wipers.

Inside the 40th Anniversary Package you'll find a four-way head restraint, a painted center console, a shifter bezel in metallic gray and brushed aluminum door lock knobs, shift boot trim ring and pedals. The special interior also includes unique floormats with an embroidered 40th Anniversary logo and a matching badge on the center console.

Exterior Features
On the outside, anniversary models have Arizona Beige Metallic performance stripes on the hood, lower rocker panels and decklid and upgraded wheels with a special Arizona Beige Metallic accent.

Four different engines drive the 2004 Ford Mustang: one V6 and three variations of a V8. Base models use a 3.8-liter V6 with 193 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. With the GT duo, the versatile 4.6-liter V8 delivers 260 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque.

Like GT models, Mach 1 Mustangs have specialized suspension. They too use the 4.6-liter V8, upgraded to 310 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque. The Cobra supercharges the V8 to specs of 390 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. In other words, they're quite fast.

The 2004 Mustang has a retuned suspension. The MacPherson strut front suspension allows each wheel to react to road imperfections independently.

Safety and Security
Dual front airbags, advanced safety belts with outboard pretensioners, a theft-deterrent system and the LATCH child seat system are standard. Also available are antilock brakes and traction control.
