THE AGE July 12

AV to feature

*Twin Cam 6
*Turbocharged XR6 {atleast 230kw}
*New 5.4 in 3 guises
*3 Valves for Falcon spec and XR8 and 4 Valves for 300+ T Series
*Lighter IRS on EVERY Falcon

This years T Series to have something around 260kw,agressive kits and optional crossed drilled rotors.

Last months Commode ute killing ute sales have made Ford even more keen on a T ute when the Stroker arrives.

The pic of the XR8 looks like its missing a front bumper IMO it sits way too high and the bonnet is too plain.

June----Ford 1730 utes Holden 1048. Ford could have sold alot more too if they could have meet demand indicating they should have a good start this month. Holden predicted the VU would outsell Fords and Ford would sell less than 1000 a month. Ford have built one awesome looking tough ute!!

It's sheer MADNESS if they don't! Why do you think HSV have the Maloo? It ain't for Tradies I can tell you.. Hot, hot ute is needed at Glenbarry Rd real fast!

No mention of suspensions do you think theyll do it with IRS?? With 260kw and stroker torque surely theyll have to.

Great news for the AV! Any chance of somebody scanning the article and posting here?

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

As I can see now Ford are selling more utes because of the tradespeople they have been waiting for a car cab 1 tonner since the WB ute. Also not to mention the perfected durability of the Falcon ute!

I found a picture from www.mellor.com and if you click on Automotive e-news you should see the article about the new falcon, click on that and it will give you a story about what Ford is doing up until that time. I have been trying to put a descent picture up for the last 1/2 hour but can't get a decent amount of contrast. So I will leave it to one of you experts out there.
