Falcons due February but most to special order

Ford has released it’s pricing for the FG X Falcon range which arrives in showrooms in February but only the XR6 and XR8 sedans will be held in stock.

Of a seven model line up, only the XR6 automatic sedan, and the XR8 sedan in manual or automatic transmission will be immediately available to purchasers.

Customers wanting a G6E, G6E or XR6 Turbo sedan or an XR6 Ute will have to place an indent order at their local Ford dealership.

The new Falcon range will feature touch screen control with MyFord Touch, voice activation to control the car’s entertainment system, climate control, satellite navigation and linked mobile devices.

It is also equipped with SYNC2’s navigation system that includes the ability to input a whole address in ‘one shot’ and SYNC2 will intuitively work it out or access favourites using personalised voice tags.

The previous XR8 model was discontinued in 2010, but Falcon vehicle line director, David Wilkinson, says the engineering team had worked hard to ensure the 2015 XR8 delivered the expected ride, handling and stopping power desired in a performance touring sedan.

Ford says it has applied the FPV GT RSPEC suspension on the new Falcon XR8 and it features:

  • Retuned front and rear dampers and springs
  • Larger rear stabiliser bar (up from 18 mm to 19 mm)
  • Stiffer front upper spring mounts
  • Stiffer front upper control arm bushing
  • Front and rear suspension geometry adjusted to complement 275 rear tyres
  • Front Brembo 4-piston caliper brakes
  • Rear single-piston caliper brakes
  • High-specification cooling fan
  • Limited slip differential
  • Sports steering gear

The new Falcon FG X range and RRP is as follows:

Falcon XR6 Sedan (auto)                          $54,340
Falcon XR8 Sedan (auto)                          $69,990
Falcon XR8 Sedan (manual)                    $69,990
