Torque is the twisting energy created inside the engine and transmitted to the rear axle via the transmission to give the car its acceleration. The gear ratios were 2.95 (first gear), 1.94 (second), 1.34 (third), 1.00 (fourth) and 0.63 (fifth).

  • Later T5s
  • Ford used an upgraded T5 manual transmission in its 1990 and later vehicles, with an emphasis on the Mustang. Many parts contained nickel for stronger gears. Gears 3 and 4 featured a carbon fiber content for smoother shifting. Top torque rating was 310 foot-pounds.
