AV Falcon Info

I know the AV is due out next year about Oct/Nov, and am chasing as much info as possible.

I am looking at buying a new XR6, but dont know whether it will be worth waiting for it. Basically, I believe the new XR6 will have in the region of 200-210kw, but also have heard there will be a 'lesser' model with about 185kw.

Can anyone back these figures up, what are the likely prices and are there any decent pictures of the AV (without body camouflage) about on the net?

thanks very much.

Yeah, Th epower figures are about right from all the info that is floating around (noe of it fully official though). There are a few taped up pics floating around on the boards..a few with good visiblity of lines, and stance, etc.


oh yeah...welcome to the boards.

Once in FF, you'll never be the same...hehe.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Firstly, welcome onboard rsgerry.

Basically I don't think there is much reliable info out there yet. Although the power figures for the AV XR6, which will be turbo which I'm assuming you know, have been quoted in a few publications and we can assume that they are about right.

Regarding pricing, no idea. But expect a probable rise of a small percentage.

Pictures? There are a few sketches in various places but no uncamouflaged pictures yet.

thanks

for the welcome!!! i also post on an arsenal board and the snobbery on there is unbelievable. good to be here. one day, everyone will drive a ford...hopefully.

just dont know whether it is worth wi\aiting for the AV. the local dealer has offered me fleet discount, i think because ford are getting caned in the sales by the commodes, and they are desperate for sdales. dont know if the discount would still apply with the AV though. love to know what they will sell for...even the base xr6 sounds good.

Hehe, hope you're a fortune teller! :s4:

Anyway, I think it's a hard situation you're in but being Ford fans here I don't think either decision is bad.

I would wait if it were me, the AU series III are definately good cars, particularly in T series guise, but the AV will bring improvements in interior, handling, power, and styling, it should be a winner, but in the end it is your money and your decision, but in my opinion AV is definately worth the wait
