We are pretty sure that you got used to Ford’s policy to introduce every year another performance version of the iconic muscle car. It looks the next in the line is 2020 Ford Mustang Boss 302. This trim, or version, has always been characterized by plenty of unique details, so we have no doubt that the new version will go in the same way. We originally saw the Boss 302 for the first time in the original first-generation model. The previous fifth generation also had this one in its palette of performance versions. The new one should keep the flavor but also come with plenty of improvements.
Compared to standard Mustang GT, this version will come with a lot of improvements. The new model will sit between the entry-level V8 GT and track-ready GT 350. This would mean several modifications on the chassis. Expect to see a well-balanced pony car, which will keep a relatively high level of comfort, everyday practicality, but also add a few performances. So, expect a slightly tuned suspension as similar things. In terms of styling, we will see a lot of distinctive details. Besides familiar “Boss 302” signs all over the car, expect to see things like unique color combinations, tweaks to both bumpers, exhaust pipes and much more.
This is another aspect where we are about to see a number of distinctive features. Of course, the list of standard features will be unique. More importantly, we are about to see unique color schemes and other aspects of the styling approach. The current-generation Mustang received an update recently and 2020 Ford Mustang Boss 302 will adopt all the changes. Still, we won’t see any improvement in terms of everyday practicality in this model eighter. Compared to arch-rivals Chevy Camaro and especially Dodge Challenger, it lacks in terms of rear seats comfort and cargo space. On the other side, count on superior materials quality.
As we already mentioned, the 2020 Ford Mustang Boss 302 will sit somewhere between GT and GT 3500 models. This refers to the engine as well. Most likely, we will see the same 5.0-liter V8, which has been updated recently. In the base GT, it delivers around 460 horsepower. Considering that the GT 350 comes with a completely new engine that delivers around 530 hp, this version should be somewhere in the middle, so expect probably something like 500 horsepower. Compared to the previous-generation Boss 302, this would be something like an additional 50 horsepower.
2020 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Ford Mustang Boss 302 should come next year if we can trust latest reports. When it comes to the price, expect something like $50,000.
