Awd Ba

Have been reading on different threads (mainly to do with Adventra) that people don't beleive there will be a AWD Falcon on the horizon.

My two bobs worth is that my understanding is Territory is based on the Barra platform. Considering this, I beleive there will be an AWD Falcon not too far in the future. It is the automotive trend. People cry about the added weight and so forth but I beleive it will be done.

I don't know anyone at Ford so this is just an opinion. It just seems logical considering the coomon platform between Barra and Territory.

Any other opinions?

Re: Awd Ba

I think that a 4wd ute could be a good move by Ford but im not sure about the sedan.

Re: Awd Ba

I know weight is a problem and I have no idea how to solve it, especially on the heavy engined 8's.

Re: Awd Ba

With the weight of the V8's the alloy block out of the new Ford GT could hepl shave some kilo's if it was suitable.
