Meet the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302, the new Ford Mustang Boss 302, and most well-rounded Mustang ever. We can think of no better way to pay homage to the original 1970 Boss 302 Trans-Am championship-winning car prepared by Bud Moore and driven by Parnelli Jones than to bring back School Bus Yellow to the color palette – which is exactly what Ford has done for the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 model year.
The name 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 resonates with the pony car faithful, as it was first applied to a Mustang that was engineered to turn and stop as well as it blasted out of the staging blocks. If you are a true Mustang aficionado, the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 must be the model that you are saving for.
The new 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is immediately recognizable as a Boss thanks to the “C” stripe running across the side body panels. The first thing to catch your eye when you watch the 2012 Boss 302 videos is a massive front splitter; other visual cues include a rear wing and custom red-and-black paint job (it’s also available in silver and red) that make the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 look like a serious racer.
The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 updates also brought a set of upgraded brakes, some tighter suspension tuning and a switchover to electric power steering, which Ford’s rendering about as well as any manufacturer. The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 interior is very basic with lots of hard, cheap-looking plastic, just an AM-FM radio, plenty of room for two — and only two — and simple audio and ventilation controls.
The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 review says that the car was a blast to drive with its above-average performance and handling, and surprising comfort. Under the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 hood was a big American V-8. Mustang hasn’t yet been caught up in the trend toward lighter cars, where a turbo-six would suffice for the top engine. For now, try on 302 cubic inches, 444 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, and a healthy dose of 380pouond-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm.
From a standstill, that engine and the very nice six-speed manual will take you to the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 0-60 mph time in the lower four-second range and to the century mark in an even 10 seconds. All the while, the Ford Mustang is making the right noise that a big V-8 should make deep, guttural, and satisfying.
