Ford Australia Website Re; RTV Ute

The ford.com.au website has no model specific data for the RTV nor does it have configurator / price facilities for this ute. I also intensely dislike the extra window popup method used which means you can't go 'Back' when you reach a dead end (like the ute section where the RTV doesn't seem to exist except on the intro page).

Anyone else know where the above features are?????

(I sent an email to Ford letting them know AP has probably got finger trouble.....)

Re: Ford Australia Website Re; RTV Ute

I think there is a back feature in the top left corner of the window ( look for the two arrows "<<" ).

But yeah, the apart from the main page, no further info on the RTV seems to exist
Kinda weird to have a big promo "teaser" on the main page, and nothing else . . .

Re: Ford Australia Website Re; RTV Ute

I seen one was well. Looked horn on the road!
By the way, in the ute section AP has entertained thoughts of fitting RTV suspension to a Pursuit or XR8!!!!!!
Now that would be an awesome sight!

Nope! But please see attached price matrix from our supplier pricelist. These prices are retail (the special discount prices have been cropped out). Some prices on these lists have conflicted with the configurator from time to time but should be pretty close.

Not much, but better than the bloody stagnant Falcon Ute site.

Re: Ford Australia Website Re; RTV Ute

Madder,

I chased some pricing and my original plan looks way better.

A pretty basic RTV 220 5M costs close to $41,300 before on roads once you add the necessities such as tonneu cover, air con, cruise. The XR8 ute costs around $42,300 but has numerous (LOTS) of extra features. All you need is the high rise suspension, a set of suitable tyres, and a diff shimming to get the best of both worlds.

More research.......

Rock n' Roll (literally). You're right, an RTV is somewhere between a jacked up XL and XLS. XR8's the go, and get yourself some of those underbody shields too.

Only two questions remain:

1. When?

2. What colour?

P.S. You've still got 3 and a bit weeks til FPV day to do it to the Pursuit
