2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302

The 2012 Ford Mustang Mustang 302 has received MotorWeek’s “Best of the Year” 2012 Drivers’ Choice Award. MotorWeek, television’s longest running automotive series, has presented its Drivers’ Choice Awards annually since 1983. The awards are among the auto industry’s most prestigious honors and are announced at the Chicago Auto Show. The Mustang Boss 302 took top honors for preserving its pony car roots, while delivering exceptional performance, power and comfort.

“We are honored to receive this award for the Boss 302,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang Chief Engineer. “Our goal was to pay homage to the heritage of this vehicle while transforming it into a world-class sports car recognized for its handling and track capabilities. It’s a fun job and I attribute the product’s success to the Mustang enthusiasts and fans who help us improve with each and every model.”

“We here at MotorWeek were left almost speechless that this rear-drive American muscle car is so extremely refined and works so seamlessly with the driver,” said MotorWeek host and executive producer John Davis. “The Mustang Boss 302 is the best example this year of a car where all aspects of engineering come together. As a total package, the Mustang Boss 302 is just an outstanding ride.”

Recognized as the best overall among winners in 14 lifestyle categories, the Mustang Boss 302 also won as “Best Performance Car.” All Drivers’ Choice winners are featured on motorweek.org, as well as on a special episode of MotorWeek airing on PBS beginning February 11, 2012, and on cable’s Velocity beginning February 21, 2012. MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards are nationally sponsored by RockAuto and Tire Rack.

The MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards are unique for their consumer focus. MotorWeek’s editorial staff evaluates more than 150 cars, trucks and utilities based on performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and dollar value.
