The 2025 Ford Capri is a sleek and small muscle car for Europe – The Capri, the famous “European Mustang” that was popular in the 1970s and 1980s is coming back to life from Ford. The new Capri will be a sleek, modern two-door car with the same engines as the 2024 Mustang. However, the body will be lighter and more agile. So far, this is what we know about the new 2025 Ford Capri.
What’s New for 2025?
Based on a rendering by HotCars Digital Artist Rostislav Prokop, the 2025 Ford Capri will be a brand-new car. It will bring back the famous nameplate that was taken off the market in 1986 and give people in Europe an option to the Mustang that is smaller and faster. Front and back lights will be LED, and there will be a big Ford logo on the car. There will be a full-width LED taillight bar and a stylish reflector on the back. The C-pillar will keep its unique shape from the first Capri, but the body will have fewer wrinkles and a more modern look overall.
The 2024 Capri will have the same engines as the 2024 Mustang. These engines are the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. The EcoBoost engine will make around 300 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, while the V8 engine will make around 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Either a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic gearbox will be paired with each engine. Power will be sent to the back wheels.
A hybrid version of the Capri will also be available. It will have an EcoBoost engine, an electric motor, and a battery pack. This will increase the power to about 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. It will also make the car use less gas and put out less pollution. The hybrid Capri will also have all-wheel drive, which will let it handle better on a variety of road situations.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The outside of the 2025 Ford Capri will look like the original Capri from the 1970s but with a modern twist. It will have LED headlights and a big Ford logo on the front. There will only be a few horizontal bars on the screen. There will be a small bulge in the hood that will hint at the powerful engine underneath.
It will look sleek and smooth from the side, with a long hood and a short trunk. The roof will dip down towards the back, giving the car a sporty look. The C-pillar will have a unique form that looks like the first Capri. The wheels will have many spokes and be big and sporty.
There will be a full-width LED taillight bar in the back, and the trunk lid will have a small spoiler. There will be two exhaust tips on each side of the stylish diffuser on the trunk. The rear bumpers will have strong shapes that make the Capri stand out.
The 2025 Ford Capri will have a roomy and comfy cabin that can fit four people. There will be leather padding and accent stitching on the seats, and they will be supportive and customizable. The dashboard will have a digital collection of instruments and an entertainment system with a touchscreen that works with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The centre panel will have lots of storage and a rotary gear selection. It will also have a drive mode choice and cup holders.
A lot of high-tech features will be built into the Capri, like keyless entry and start, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and more.
There will be some changes made to the engines in the 2025 Ford Capri to make them work better with its lighter and smaller body. A 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with about 300 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque will be the base engine. This engine will work well, use little gas, and put out fewer pollutants. You can choose to have a 5.0-litre Coyote V8 engine instead. This engine will make about 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This engine will sound and work better than ever, and it will also have more personality and attraction.
It will be up to the driver to choose between a six-speed manual gearbox or a 10-speed automatic gearbox to go with either engine. The automatic gearbox will be easier to use and smoother, while the manual gearbox will give you more freedom and fun.
A hybrid version of the Capri will also be available. It will have an EcoBoost engine, an electric motor, and a battery pack. The system will increase the power to about 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. It will also make the car use less gas and put out less pollution. The hybrid Capri will also have all-wheel drive, which will let it handle better on a variety of road situations.
The Capri will be fun to drive because its body is lighter and more flexible. The centre of gravity will be lower, the suspension will be stronger, and the driving will be more direct. It will also have a drive mode option that lets the driver change how the engine, gearbox, suspension, steering, and stability control are set up. Normal, Sport, Track, and Snow will be the drive modes.
