Have a look at these hot pics of the 2012 Boss! Originally designed to kill the Trans Am. Hmm.

“Forty-two years ago, Ford took aim at one of America’s classic motorsports competitions—the SCCA’s Trans Am series—with a Mustang designed specifically to leave its muscle-car rivals in the dust. And because the rules of the game required the Blue Oval to sell a production version of its racer before it took to the track, the amazing Mustang Boss 302 was born.”

Get a jump on the Ford F-150 with EcoBoost before it hits the showroom floors. Take a peek at this.

“This seems like a very smart move for Ford, and from where we sit, it shows an admirable level of respect for customers. It’s not every day that you see an automaker investing this much time and energy explaining its new product to the public, face-to-face.”
