2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Kona Blue and White

The Boss is Back! It's leaner, meaner, more powerful and ready to take on everything....on and off the track. The new Boss 302 engine is a 444 horsepower version of the high-tech Ford 5.0L 4V Ti-VCT V8 engine. It features an aluminum block, aluminum heads, forged-aluminum pistons, forged-steel connecting rods, a high-energy coil-on-plug ignition system, a composite shell-welded intake manifold with runner pack, and exhaust manifold with tubular stainless steel headers. All that power is channeled through a short-throw, close-ratio six-speed manual transmission with a race-inspired clutch.

Front performance components include independent MacPherson struts with reverse-L lower control arms, a 34.6 mm tubular stabilizer bar, a strut tower brace and manually-adjustable strut damping. In the rear, there's a 3-link sold axle with limited-slip differential, coil springs, a Panhard bar, a 25.0 mm stabilizer bar, and manually-adjustable shock damping.

The unique electric power-assisted (EPAS) rack-and-pinion steering on the Boss 302 has driver-selectable comfort, normal and sport models. The driver also has control over the fully-defeatable traction control system (TCS) and electronic stability control (ESC) settings.

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Kona Blue and WhiteSure stopping power is delivered by four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS, featuring 14-inch vented front discs with four-piston Brembo floating aluminum calipers and 11.8-inch vented rear discs, with single-piston floating iron calipers.

The unique appearance and attitude of the Boss 302 in Kona Blue and White includes an aggressive front spoiler, an aerodynamic rear spoiler, a quad-pipe exhaust system with noise-attenuated side outlets and lightweight, wide-spoke painted-aluminum wheels (19 x 9-inch front, 19x9.5-inch rear) with Pirelli P Zero tires (255/40ZR19 front, 285/35ZR19 rear).

Inside, you'll find a unique Boss steering wheel, seats and door panel trim. Recaro front bucket seats are also available to add a finishing touch to the outstanding combination of form and function that is the all-new Boss 302.
