Based on the mid-generation refresh Ford Mustang Fastback, the Cougar had a 2 inch longer wheelbase as well as hidden grille headlights. Its design was based on the Jaguar E-Type to help create a European appeal to the North American consumer.
The XR-7 is a luxurious trim level that included leather bucket seats, woodgrain dashboard inserts, a roof-mounted console, and a vinyl roof cover.
Both the regular and XR-7 trim levels included an optional GT-E package which included further components, but the biggest improvement was either a 427 V8, that was fitted to 357 units, or a 428 Cobra Jet V8, which was fitted to 37 units.
