The Capri Mk III was a little more than a substantial update of the Capri MK II.
The first cars were available in March 1978 and for the 1982 model year, the Essex 3.0 V6 powerplant which had been the range topper since September 1969 was dropped, while a new sporty version debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, called the 2.8 Injection.
The new model was the first regular model since the RS2600 to use fuel injection and gave a top speed of 210 km/h, but the car still had a standard four-speed gearbox.
The Capri 2.8 Injection breathed new life into the Capri range and kept the car in production 2–3 years longer than Ford had planned.
