It is no secret that the 2012 and 2013 Boss 302 Mustangs are outstanding performance machines from Ford Motor Company. Bred for the street and track, they are really great Mustangs that exhibit terrific driving manners and consistently reward their owner at every twist and turn they encounter. Once the car was announced, it did not take long for the Steeda Team of Performance Engineers to thoroughly review the Boss 302’s driving dynamics, hardware, and powertrain and develop a comprehensive array of performance parts and accessories for the Boss 302 that take the Boss 302 to even greater levels of performance. Not wanting to turn our back on owners of 2011 – 2012 5.0L powered Mustang GTs, we also kept a keen eye on a program of providing them with Steeda Boss 302 performance parts that can be retro-fitted to their cars so they also can benefit from the Boss Program we have.
