If you like tribute cars or vehicles that take its styling cues from another era, then the Ford Mustang is right up your alley. The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 edition takes paying tribute one step further by embodying the spirit of the 1970 Boss 302 edition with its new, reflective hockey stick graphics package. Ford chose School Bus Yellow as its paint scheme, ideal for parents who chase down the school bus to bring Johnny his forgotten lunch. Not really! Instead, the color scheme is a heritage color outfitted on a truly modern road-ripping masterpiece.

Engine and Transmission

Performance is what you want and the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 delivers it in spades. This model is outfitted with a 5.0-liter (302 cubic foot) V-8 engine that bangs out 444 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 380 foot-pounds of stroke at 4,500 rpm. This double overhead cam engine is paired with a short-throw, close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission for optimum shifting capabilities.

Other features that enhance the Boss 302’s driving characteristics include a limited slip 3.73 rear axle that makes use of carbon fiber clutch plates, with optional Torsen differential available. This model features firmer coil springs and suspension bushings at all four corners, a larger diameter rear stabilizer bar, manually adjustable shocks and struts, 19-inch racing wheels set within Pirelli P Zero summer tires, and 14-inch vented font rotors with Brembo 4-piston calipers. A front splitter and a rear spoiler are standard.

Model Dimensions

Like all current Mustang models, the Boss sits on a 107.1-inch wheelbase and is 188.5 inches long, 73.9 inches wide and 55.8 inches tall. You get 81.0 cubic feet of passenger volume and enjoy a 13.4 cubic foot trunk.

Unlike most other Mustangs, the Boss 302 seats two adults as Ford removed its rear seat. That’s good because all other ‘Stangs make the rear seat a torture test for everyone except your small children.
