Some exciting new features and options are available for the 2012 Ford Mustang. Among the new additions are the Boss 302, Boss 302 Laguna Seca, and Lava Red exterior paint. The Boss 302 is a special edition Mustang that pays tribute to the legendary 1969 model, with a distinctive design, enhanced aerodynamics, and a powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 444 horsepower. The Boss 302 Laguna Seca is an even more extreme version of the Boss 302, with a stripped-down interior, stiffer suspension, and larger brakes, making it ready for the racetrack. The Lava Red paint is a unique color option that changes from black to red depending on the lighting. These new features join the existing ones, such as Grabber Blue and Yellow Blaze paint colors, the Mustang Club of America Edition package, and the Shelby GT500 model that boasts a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 with 550 horsepower. Another notable improvement for the 2012 Mustang is that all models, including the base V6, come with dual exhaust as standard, giving them a more aggressive sound and appearance.
