Unfortunatly, it was the uninspiring XF that was the most popular with 278101 being produced, followed by the EA with 223612 and the XB with 220765

Re: biggest selling falcon

The legend XD clocked up 197,000 odd from memory. If you were to consider that the XD and XE built a good solid reputation for Ford, then it's no wonder the 'uninspiring' XF holds the record.
I agree that the XD - XF cars have thier faults, but if it wasn't for their no-nonsense approach to motoring, then Ford would have disappeared LONG ago.

Original XD 351 Ute - I got one!!

HSV - I just don't want one....EVER!

My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......

The XD sold 206974 all told, not too bad really. Yes, the XD and XE built a solid reputation for the XF to build on, it was just unfortunate that the XF was the Worlds Best Taxi (tm) at the time with no performance options or V8.

Re: biggest selling falcon

It's interesting that the XF and EA so convincingly outsold the VK and VL despite having few 'image leading' models like turbos, Walkinshaws etc.

Re: biggest selling falcon

HOW dare you call the XF uninspiring!! I love my XF and so many other love XFs too. The best selling Falcon ever and arguably the toughest built. They go forever like Volvos, parts are cheap as, they're hella light (1330kg odd) and they look good too.

I am sure you like you XF, and I think they are quite a nice looking car. By uninspiring, I mean that they were a very boring car from the factory. No high performance (let alone vaguely sporting) versions were made available from the Factory. At least the XD and XE had the option of a two V8s and European Sports Pack. If you think a 120 kW EFI 4.1 is inspiring, then maybe you should get out more.

Re: biggest selling falcon

I agree with smincer1 they were boring but jeez i have seen a few done up and . I think it was one of the better looking recent falcons. I wouldn't mind havng one as a project car!!

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
