The big news for 1985 was improvements to the 5.0 liter V8 H.O. The engine received true dual exhausts, and 1960s era stainless steel tube headers.

Along with a longer duration lift cam and hydraulic roller valve lifters, power output increased to a respectable 210 bhp.

The SVO continued into 1985, now in Dark Charcoal Gray instead of Black and new flush-mounted halogen headlights which improved visual appeal.

New P225/60VR16 Goodyear Gatorback tires and a new 3.73:1 rear axle ratio shaved nearly half a second in the quarter mile and raised trap speed by 4 mph.

The steering ratio was improved from 20:1 to 15:1, and the price dropped slightly.

But the big news was the introduction mid-year, of a newly improved Turbo Charged L4 with an increased boost (from 14 psi to 15 psi), dual exhausts, and a wilder camshaft, which resulted in a power increase to 205 bhp.
