About Ford Thunderbird

The Ford Thunderbird, as a personal luxury vehicle, was produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company from 1955 to 1997, after 5-year hiatus, from 2002 to 2005. Under the competition pressure brought by Chevrolet Corvette sports car, Ford responded to launch the first personal luxury car Thunderbird for the 1955 model year. Before the Ford Thunderbird was replaced by the Ford Mustang in 2006, it had been manufactured through eleven generations. During its lengthy development history, it received awards such as Motor Trend's "Car of the Year" and so on. 
The tenth-generation model was produced from October 1988 to September 1997. It was offered in trim levels such as base, LX, and high-performance Thunderbird Super Coupe (also called Thunder SC for short). During this generation, from 1989 to 1997,the Ford Thunderbird was powered by a 3.8 L V6 engine, producing 140 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque, then the SC was powered by Supercharged V6, 4.9 L and 4.6 L V8 engines replaced it in succession. Then the eleventh-generation model (2002-2005) followed a nostalgic recreation of old-fashioned styling as a convertible with a soft top and an optional removable hardtop and a coupe. It featured all-independent suspension and retained trim levels from the previous generation. But, the last-generation was only powered by the 3.9 L V8 engine cranking out 252 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque and this engine was mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.
