Throughout its life, the Capri was equipped with several engines starting with a crude V4 2.0 lt in the Mark I version. Most Capris however left the factory with either a 1.6 or 2.0 litre Pinto overhead cam engine that was extremely reliable as long as it was looked after and received regular oil changes.

By 1984, all 1.6 and 2.0 litre models were badged as LASER Capri and were instantly recognised by their chequered side stripes running above the side trim and matching chequered cloth seats. The 6 pod dash now sported a digital stereo / cassette player with electric aerial, and the steering wheel and gear lever were covered in shark grey leather. As a result of legislation, from 1985 all LASER Capris were fitted with rear inertia seatbelts and daylight dim dip headlights.
