2012 Ford Mustang makes list of fastest cars under $30K

So just what car do you drop $25 to $35K upon when you are looking for the most bang for the buck?  Well, not surprisingly these days, the choices of efficient and powerful street cars isn’t always an easy one.  That being said, however, the choice to pick up either the Ford Mustang coupe or a new, powerful Ford Mustang GT…isn’t a hard call, considering the competition.

A recent head-to-head between several cars, including the Ford Mustang, Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer, and the Hyundai Genesis proved that the all-American classic isn’t one to sniff or sneeze at…let alone completely ignore.

Name the new Ford Mustang V6 Performance Package on Facebook

Well, if you’ve ever wanted to be a part of the next coming of the Ford Mustang, here’s your chance.  For the 2012 Mustang V6, Ford is offering up the opportunity for the enthusiast community to be able to name the latest Mustang V6 Performance Package.  How?  Ford will flex its wings and engage the might of its social media campaign to solicit Facebook fans in order to harvest up potential ideas to apply an official name to the Performance Package, which offers the lightweight 305-horsepower all-aluminum V6, a 3.31 performance rear axle, and Mustang GT-based suspension & braking components.  Additionally, a set of styled 19-inch wheels and Pirelli performance tires add to the equation to keep all the unleashed power harnessed and under control.

So, what are you waiting for?  The contest only runs through mid-December, so you’d better hurry to enter the naming contest; the grand prize winner walks away with a two-year lease, courtesy of FoMoCo!

Ford Mustang V6 1000-lap challenge at Bristol

Mustang 100 Lap Challenge

It looks like the Ford crew is once again set to put their chips on the table and walk the talk very soon.  We’ve seen and heard full well the power, refinement, and efficiency standards the 2011 Ford Mustang has brought about; on June 23rd, the V6-equipped Mustang will be put through the paces at Bristol Motor Speedway (Tennessee) and take part in a 1000-lap challenge.  Big deal, right?  Well, it just might be–the 2011 Mustang V6 will be placed on the track for the lap count trial, but will only receive one tank of fuel.  So, on a half-mile track, this means the new fuel-sipping pony car by Ford will have to achieve over 500 miles on a single fueling.

Ford has set up a contest (www.Mustang1000LapChallenge.com) to help promote the excitement behind the event and allow for contestants to guess just how many laps they believe the Mustang V6 will go before running dry.  For the lucky ducks that guess the lap count spot-on, Ford will then randomly select one person who will take home their very own 2011 Ford Mustang V6.  Not bad at all!
