Ford Cougar Overview
The Ford Cougar is classed as a large sports car and was produced by the American automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Company. This car was a replacement for the Ford Probe and was designed to be sold on the European and Australian markets. It was first produced in 1998 and ceased production in 2002. These cars are good value for money and they handle really well. They are fast cars and worth considering if you are after a large sports coupe. They are quite stylish looking cars with lots of interior space, but rides are not the greatest. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Ford Cougar?
Ford Cougar History
The Ford Cougar began production in 1998 and was originally intended to be the third generation Ford Probe, but after much consideration, the Cougar name was preferred. This car was built on the same chassis as the Ford Mondeo and shares the V6 engine, but the Cougar is a more expensive choice. Ford wanted to reintroduce a sports coupe to the European market. Somehow the Cougar never quite took off in Europe, and when the Mk III Mondeo was introduced in 2000, Ford decided to end production of the Cougar in 2002. The lack of prestige associated with this car was one of the major issues, as the BMW 3-series showed the desire for a car of this class.
