The high revving 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is known strictly for its energized 5.0-liter V8 and its adjustable suspension because it was built as a track car. It was built to go fast and handle well in the corners but one aspect of the car that could use some work is the no-frills interior.
Several owners have been complaining that the interior could use some more technology. It looks as though they may be getting their wish, as a leaked list of features includes the SYNC system. The Boss will also be getting a 4.2-inch LCD message center that will likely be the same one currently used in the Explorer and F-150. The Boss will also get HID headlights, although it is unclear whether they will be standard or an option, but what has been confirmed is that the graphics package will be available, similar to that of the 1970 Boss 302.

Along with a new EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 option, Ford is apparently preparing to offer the F-150 with the company’s secret 5.0-liter V8 “Coyote” engine. A bevy of F-150s were spotted by the folks at PickupTrucks.com, and the spy photographers were even able to get up close and under the hood to see the new V8 (pictured above).
This new engine will reportedly make around 400hp and 400 ft-lbs of torque and will be shared with the Mustang GT. Both the current 4.6-liter V8 and 5.4-liter V8 engines will be dropped from the Ford lineup, with the EcoBoost taking the place of the 4.6 and the Coyote replacing the 5.4L unit.
