Because of the oil crisis in 1979, Ford decided to replace the 4.9L V-8 with a 4.2L V-8 in hopes of achieving better fuel economy for the fox body. The new engine was the only V-8 engine that was offered in 1980 and 81. It produced only 120 hp, the lowest ever for a Mustang V-8. This change meant that the performance choice for 'Stang buyers was the 2.3 L turbocharged four cylinder engine - it produced 132 horsepower, but had reliability issues due to inadequate lubrication.
