The 1989 Mustang LX came standard with the 90 hp 2.3 L four cylinder with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The 5.0 L V-8 engine, producing 225 hp, was optional. Both the LX and the GT were built with coil spring MacPherson struts in the front, and a four link coil spring suspension in the rear. Although 1989 was the Mustang's 25th anniversary year, there was not a particularly special offering. Jack Roush had engineered and mocked-up a Twin Turbo 5.8L 'Stang for the occasion that pushed 400hp. The anniversary fox body concept had Koni struts and shocks that were adjustable from the dash, and more. Ford ultimately decided the car was too extreme, and chose to commemorate the anniversary with a small emblem on the dash and window sticker.
