About Ford Tempo

Ford Tempo, as a compact vehicle, was produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company from 1983 to 1994. Available as a 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan, Ford Tempo was introduced as the successor to the Ford Fairmont and competitor to Chrysler "K-cars", Chevrolet Corsica and Dodge Spirit/Plymouth Acclaim. Born to respond the rejuvenation plan of offering more environmentally friendly, fuel efficient and more modern styled models, Ford Tempo was replaced by the Ford Contour and Ford Taurus in 1995 after being manufactured through two generations.
The first-generation Ford Tempo (1984-1987) made its debut in 1983 as a 1984 model. It was Ford's first compact car downsizing and was offered in trim levels including entry-level L, mid-level GL, luxury LX (replacing the GLX), luxury GLX and AWD. During this generation, Ford Tempo was powered by a 2.0 L diesel and 2.3 L gasoline engines and these engines were paired with the 3-speed automatic, 4-speed and 5-speed manual transmissions. The second-generation Ford Tempo (1988-1994) received a major redesign in 1988. Besides the entry-level L, mid-level GL, AWD, luxury LX trim levels carried over from the previous generation, it also got a performance-oriented model GLS. As a 4-door sedan, Ford Tempo still got power from engines from previous generation, but these engines were mounted to the 3-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmissions.
