Ford Mustang Facebook Fans Choose "Mayhem" Name for New Performance Package

Ford offers a performance package on the Mustang V6 that according to Ford, “delivers on “fun, fast and affordable” and now it has an official name, thanks to the Mustang’s Facebook fans.

Ford reached out to almost 1.4 million fans on the Mustang Facebook page and the fans chose the “Mustang Mayhem Package” as the official name for the V6 performance package.

“We saw great enthusiasm from fans, with tons of creative, unique names coming in,” said Brian McClary, Ford social and emerging media specialist. “The contest was twofold – it let us engage with fans by letting them have a say, and it helped build awareness for the package.”

Ford received over 3,000 submissions, but the winning submission came from a fan in Charlotte, North Carolina, who has won a three-year lease on a 2012 Mustang equipped with the Mayhem Mustang Package.

The 2012 Ford Mayhem Mustang Package includes:

-3.31 rear axle ratio for quicker off-the-line acceleration
-Mustang GT coupe front and rear stabilizer bars
-Mustang GT front struts and rear shocks/springs
-Shelby GT500 rear lower control arm
-Unique 19-inch wheels
-Pirelli performance tires for improved grip
-Mustang GT front and rear brake calipers with Performance Friction pads
