Ford Mustang Boss 302, Americas Dream Car

Posted by on March 30, 2012 in New Cars, Reviews - 1 Comment

Americas favorite muscle car since 1964, when the first Ford Mustang was announced has been a top choice for customers around the world. Since the debut in 1964, however, a lot has changed. There have been 8 different revisions of the car since debut,each arguable much better than the previous generation. In 2005, Ford paid homage to the classic 1965, highly sought after Ford Mustang by designing a classic look matted with tons of technology, style and comfort. The 2005 Ford Mustang was an instant success, putting the muscle car at the top of everyone’s list. Since the huge surge in 2005, Ford has been pushing the horsepower, torque and material quality of the car to higher and higher levels to help attract more than just the die-hard sports car enthusiasts who typically purchase the 2 ton American piece of muscle.

After a very conservative and mild refresh on the 2011 Ford Mustang, a lot of talk was circulating around Ford that they Mustang is receiving less attention from the car maker, with more attention being directed at fuel efficient cars such as the Escape, Edge and Focus. Could Ford be abandoning the muscle car dream, of more power and torque? Would the widely successful Mustang dynasty finally come to an end? Although this may seem like a ridiculous notion, do not take it lightly. The Camaro, for example was discontinued for a few years during a huge slump in sales (at the same time of the Ford Mustang boom) which threatened the brand, and more importantly threatened the die hard fans of the Camaro which led the market in muscle car sales for a few years in the 1990s. Is the beloved Ford Mustang going to see the same ailment as the Camaro? Are Mustang fans around the world going to lose some years of America’s favorite sports car due to politics and EPA gas problems? How will Ford address these pressing issues without paying the extra taxes as fees that are imposed on car makers who do not fit into the proper average fuel consumption brackets if they produce muscle cars?

Ford’s answer? The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302! Surprising, isnt it? According to leading magazines and journalists such as Topgear,the Ford Mustang Boss 202 “American Icon” is one of the best cars they have driven around the famous Laguna Seca test track, with results beating even the king of International muscle: the BMW m3. The Boss 302 is a beautiful rendition of the Ford Mustang, boasting 440 Horsepower and 380 pounds feet of torque. The Laguna Seca version of the Boss 302 is even capable of beating the 1.0 lateral g test around the lap, which is one of the historical achievements for the Ford Mustang line.

According to Dave Pericak, the Mustang’s chief engineer:

“Boss is a hallowed word around here, and we couldn’t put that name on a new Mustang until we were sure everything was in place to make this car a worthy successor. We were either going to do it right or not do it at all – no one on the team was going to let Boss become a sticker and wheel package.”

Happy driving!
