About Mercury Topaz

Serving as the twin of Ford Tempo, Mercury Topaz was built by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company and sold under its entry-level premium brand Mercury, between 1983 and 1994 as a compact vehicle. Originally introduced as the successor of Mercury Zephyr, Topaz was part of a rejuvenation plan by Ford to offer more environmentally friendly, fuel efficient, and more modern styled models to compete with the European and Japanese imports. To meet new safety standards, Ford decided ended the production of Topaz in the 1990s and Topaz was eventually replaced by Mercury Mystique and Mercury Sable after being manufactured for two generations.
The first-generation Mercury Topaz was produced from 1983 to 1987 and went on sale in 1983 as a 1984 model. To respond the equal lengthy Chevrolet Cavalier, Topaz was offered in two body styles, 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan. And it came in several trim levels including base L, GS, GS-AWD, LS, LS-AWD and XR5. And during this generation, Mercury Topaz was powered by 2.0 L I4 and 2.3 L I4, engine sent power through 3-speed automatic, 4-speed and 5-speed manual transmissions to front wheels or four wheels. The more recent Topaz received a major redesign for the 1988 model year. It was available in only one body style, 4-door sedan and came in trim levels such as GS, GS-AWD, LS, LS-AWD, XR5 and LTS (Luxury Touring Sedan). Back then, Topaz got power from 2.3 L I4 and 3.0 L V6 mated to 3-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmissions.
