  In November 1997, ready for the 1998 model year (for the R registration letter) Ford brought out the facelift model - in fact this was to be the final incarnation of the vehicle and to many this is the best. It is also relatively rare as just over 6000 were manufactured. New features included a restyled rear which reduced the 'bustle' effect, a more sophisticated front bumper including air ducts for brake cooling and  color coded radiator surround and darkened head lamp inners. The net effect was to improve the styling and sophistication of the car. Additional goodies were also added to the top of the range Ultima, including reversing radar, headlamp wash, and adjustable headlamps.
