Ford introduces the new name of the V6 Performance Package – the Mayhem Mustang Package

In late 2010, Ford announced that they were looking for a more exciting name for the Ford Mustang V6 Performance Package, employing the help of their hoards of Facebook fans for ideas and today Ford has announced that new name – the 2012 Ford Mayhem Mustang Package.

The 2012 Ford Mayhem Mustang Package was named by a Facebook fan in North Carolina and for his or her help, they will receive a free 3-year lease of a 2012 Ford Mustang V6 equipped with the Mayhem Mustang Package simply for being one of the 10,000 people who took a stab at naming the next Mustang performance package.

The Mayhem Mustang Package for the 2012 Ford Mustang begins with the standard V6 model, powered by the new 3.7L V6 – churning out 305 horsepower while also offering better than 30mpg – and mated to either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Next, Ford adds the shocks, struts and front/rear stabilizer bars from the new Mustang GT along with front and rear brakes from the V8-powered Mustang GT with performance brake pads. Next, the rear lower control arms from the ultra high performance Shelby GT500 and a new strut tower brace cap off the handling improvements.

A 3.31 to 1 rear axle ratio gives the V6 Mustang Mayhem Package stronger low end acceleration and Pirelli high performance tires wrapped around unique 19” rims help to give the Mayhem Mustang better traction. Finally, the Mayhem Mustang Package features a unique electronic stability control calibration tuned for spirited driving and new Mayhem badging helps this new trimline stand out from other new V6 Mustangs.

Ford has not announced an official price and timeline for the 2012 Ford Mustang Mayhem Package but with the 2011 calendar year nearing its midpoint - it should only be a matter of time before 2012 models are lining dealership lots around the country.
