About Ford Contour
The Ford Contour made its debut at the North American market in late 1994 as a 1995 model. Initially, it was available in three trim levels: base GL, more luxurious LX and sporty SE. Then, in April 1996, a Sport model became an option in both SE and GL series and in 1998, a high-performance SVT Contour was introduced. The Ford Contour featured in standard equipment including dual front airbags, tilt steering wheel and AM/FM stereo. Throughout its lifespan, it had always been powered by a 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine that could produce 125 horsepower and a 2.5 L Duratec V6 engine cranking out 170 horsepower and both engines sent power through either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission to the front wheel.
