If you’re a fan of the current Mustang
body style who’s been saving his lunch money to buy a 2014 Boss 302, we’ve got some bad news for you: the Boss 302
won’t be back next year, meaning that Ford is adhering to its promise to build the car for just two years.
The news comes from Mustangs Daily
, as part of a broader list of changes to the Mustang lineup for the 2014 model year. Overall, the revisions to remaining Mustang models are merely cosmetic, as an all-new Mustang is in the works for the 2015 model year.
Colors dropped from the 2014 Mustang range include Red Candy Metallic (replaced by Ruby Red Metallic), High Performance While (replaced by Oxford White) and School Bus Yellow (which had been available only on Boss 302 models). The Exterior Appearance Package 101A (lower tape stripe, deck lid spoiler) disappears, too.
There are two new Appearance Packages for 2014, which include black mirror caps, a black deck lid spoiler and quarter window louvers. The FP6 Package also adds 18-inch wheels, painted black, while the FP8 package comes with 19-inch bright machined wheels with black windows.
As for the Shelby GT500
, 2014 models now come standard with heated seats, unless you opt for the (highly recommended) Recaros.
Will the Boss 302 return when the new Mustang is launched? We hope the answer is yes, but we won’t know for certain until the new lineup debuts for 2015.
