Facebook fans pick ‘Mayhem’ badge for new 2012 Mustang 2012 V6 Performance Package

2012 Ford Mustang Mayhem Performance Package

In Nov. 2010, Ford asked its Facebook fans of the Ford Mustang to come up with the name for the 2012 V6 Performance Package as a part of a new contest. The  fans have spoken and have chosen ‘Mayhem’ as the new name for the V6 Performance Package.

More than 3,000 submissions were made to the Facebook page and nearly 6,700 users installed the ‘You Name It’ app. The winner (who came up with the Mayhem name), from North Carolina, receives a 3-year lease on a 2012 Mustang with the Mayhem Mustang 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.”

The Ford Mayhem Mustang Package takes advantage of the 305-horsepower all-aluminum Ti-VCT V6 engine and borrows some components from the Mustang GT including  suspension, braking and body stiffening upgrades.
