Ford Mustang Boss 302 Engine makes 2012 Top 10

We all know one of the best Ford Mustang rebirths of legend in the past year has been the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang…hands down.  The return of the infamous Ford 5.0-liter V8 power plant has done more for the Mustang brand than simply power the 2012 Mustang GT with a 5-oh, it has redefined a new sense of world-class quality within the Ford vehicle lineup.

Ford the 2012 year, Wards Auto has named the Ford Mustang Boss 302 V8 engine as one of the 10 best in contention.  After capping 2011 with honors, the Ford 5.0 redux has once again shown its blue blood takes the cake in the categories of excellence, refinement, quality, and most importantly to us, power with reliability.  What’s more, the Mustang’s 5.0 V8 was the largest displacement engine in the top 10 and the sole v-banked 8-cylinder to receive notoriety.  Even more interesting?  The 5.0 is amongst good company on the top 10 list, with other makes like Audi and BMW padding up the additional awards.

LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

2013 Boss 302

It’s no secret any longer…the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is back and is here to stay.  The updated 2013 Boss 302 builds upon the inaugural success of the 1970s legend’s rebirth in the 2012 model year.  How, you say?  Insane graphics, new paint hues, a rear seat delete, and so many more tweaks that make this car significantly resemble its namesake from the muscle car’s pinnacle era.

We had the first-hand chance to rip up the track in a 2012 Boss 302, and it was quite possibly the best performing, and yet, most refined Mustang to date.  It’s crazy to imagine just what the Ford team could possibly do to make such a great thing…even greater.

There’s so much more in store than we can lead in upon within the confines of a simple introduction, so you’d better check all the mess out in the official PR from Ford!

Paul Brown takes the #50 BOSS 302S Ford Mustang to the top

All summer long, we kept Ford Mustang fans posted on the hot racing action Paul Brown has put down in the #50 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S racer and now, he’s got even more to be proud of.  Brown recently placed first in the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Race, solidifying the GTS Championship title.  Just one more race remains in the 2011 season, but Brown has already matched honors with the legendary BOSS 302 racer, Parnelli Jones–if he gets one more “W” in his final race at Road Atlanta, he’ll get to scribe his name in the books of Ford Mustang racing legends.

Awesome. We saw Tiger Racing’s Mustang in action back in June at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit and seriously, it put a good hurting on the track.  Brown’s got some good mojo going behind the wheel of this 2012 BOSS 302S and we wish nothing but the best for him & Tiger Racing.
