A car named Sierra appeared in 1982. Development on its creation began back in 1979, and $ 1.2 billion was spent on the project. The novelty was built on the basis of the Probe III concept car and inherited from it a revolutionary new body shape and a very low coefficient of aerodynamic drag for Cx = 0.34 for that time. Sierra was produced in the form of a three-and five-door hatchback, plus a wagon. In 1984, the range of bodywork filled up two-door sedan. Initially, three versions of the trim and equipment of the car (L, GL, and also Ghia) were proposed. The Ghia version had better equipment and was different in appearance.

In addition to the standard set, such rare things as fuel computer and heated front seats were offered as options for this configuration. At the end of 1984, the car was modernized, but it did not affect the appearance. In the mid-80s, they began to install ABS on all Sierra models.
