2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

Only a few names like the Ford Mustang are more revered than the tagline Boss. It is best known as the performance package for the 1970 Mustang that went on to win Trans-Am races. And now, for the current crop of Mustangs, the Boss name has been revived, much to the delight of enthusiasts of this legendary sports car. But how does the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 edition stack up?


True to the tradition, the new Boss is developed for the performance enthusiast. As for the looks, it gives a great salute to the Mustang’s colorful past, complete with racing stripes and hockey stick graphics. And with a new yellow paint job that gives a salute to 1970 Trans Am champion Parnelli Jones; the nostalgia is taken to another level.


But nostalgia is not just the only thing that makes the new Boss stand out from the others. Improved performance, true to the design ethos of the original Boss, has been accomplished thanks to a long line of modifications. A 302 cubic inch/5.0 liter engine is used for this car.

Thanks to extensive modifications, a maximum output of 444 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque is evenly distributed to all revs. A six speed manual transmission and an optional Torsen limited slip differential are incorporated to transmit all those power to the rear wheels. Adjustable struts and shock absorbers provide sharper, track-ready handling. And unique 19 inch wheels provide superior grip.

The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a proper salute to the Mustang’s colorful past. Equally adept to both road and track, the boss is back.
