1990 Ford Thunderbird

No changes were introduced for the 1990 Ford Thunderbird.  The standard and LX trims were available with only one engine option: a 3.8 liter V6 that put out just 140 horsepower.  Drivers and reviewers complained that the '90 Thunderbird had gotten too far from its roots as a performance sports car.  Where was the muscle?  The power?  The pizzazz?

It was in the Super Coupe, of course.  The 1990 Thunderbird Super Coupe was unchanged from the previous model year, when it had reigned as Motor Trend's 'Car of the Year'.  There was a lot to love about the Super Coupe, too: its state-of-the-art supercharged 3.8 liter V-6 engine featured intercooling and computer-controlled fuel injection.   With 210 horsepower and 315 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood, the '90 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe had the power, speed, and agility to make it a favorite with drivers looking for that classic American racing style.
