About Ford Probe

Ford Probe, as a liftback coupe, was produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company from 1989 to 1997. As a compact sports car, Ford Probe was introduced in 1989 to replace the Ford EXP for North American market. Built at the Mazda G-platform and designed based on the Mazda MX-6 sport compact coupe, Ford Probe was intended to compete with the Acura Integra, Nissan 200SX and Toyota Celica in North America. Although only being manufactured for about eight years through two generations, Ford Probe had been Motor Trend Magazine's Car of the Year, on Car and Driver Magazine's Ten Best List and recommended by Consumer Reports and so on.
The first-generation Ford Probe (1989-1992) made its debut in 1988 for the 1989 model year. The American version of Ford Probe was offered in base GL, mid-level LX and top-of-the-line GT trim levels. During this generation, it was powered by a 2.2 L I4 engine rated at 110 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque, a 2.2 L I4 turbocharged engine producing 145 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque and a 3.0 L V6 engine cranking out 140-145 horsepower. All these engines were paired with either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission. Then the second-generation Ford Probe (1993-1997) received a complete redesign. Back then, it was available in Base, SE (Sport Edition) and GT trim levels as well as GT Plus and GTS appearance packages. 2.0 L I4 and 5.5 L V6 engine mated to the 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission were available powertrains.
