Lincoln-Mercury Public Relations Photograph
The 1979 Mercury Capri is available in four versions - the well-equipped base Capri, the sporty Capri RS (above), the performance-oriented Turbo RS and the luxurious Capri Ghia.  The Capri's standard powertrain is a 2.3-liter overhead cam four-cylinder engine coupled with a four-speed manual transmission.  Optional powerplants include a 2.8-liter V-6, a 5.0-liter V-8 and a turbocharged version of the four-cylinder engine.  Three levels of suspension - base, Radial Sport and one based on Michelin's revolutionary TRX tires and wheels (above) - are also available.  The broad choice of powertrains, standard rack-and-pinion steering and three suspension choices add up to an extremely versatile car that can be equipped to meet a wide variety of tastes.
