Ford gettin all the attention

In the new issue of Go-Auto E news it has an article on the 4 family cars, seeing whos gettin all the attention. well read. youl really enjoy it.

FORD Australia comprehensively won the
Sydney motor show publicity stakes in terms of
interest generated in its cars, but Mitsubishi
Motors Australia was a surprising second
placegetter.
During the two weeks of the Sydney motor
show, Mitsubishi eclipsed both Holden and
Toyota.
Interest in the Magna at GoAuto Online, as
measured by the GoAuto Trends service, surged
following the announcement of the all-wheel
drive Magna at the show.
In spite of all the noise by Holden and Ford
about all-wheel drive Commodores and
Falcons, Mitsubishi is the first local car-maker
to launch a 4x4 driveline under a locally-made
car.
In the days following the car's unveiling at
the show, Mitsubishi story requests jumped,
taking its requests for the week to 28 per cent of
all requests for new models and road tests.
Interest in Holden lifted from nine per cent to
17 per cent during the first days of the show and
interest in Toyota rose from just over nine per
cent to 14 per cent.
There was a lot of interest in the Commodore
SSX hatchback as a concept car but that did not
translate into major interest for Holden's new
model VY Commodore in new model and road
test story requests.
In contrast to Ford and Mitsubishi, interest in
the all-new Camry was relatively flat during the
motor show period.
Meanwhile, Ford continued to dominate
interest from readers as its on-going BA Falcon
launch campaign rolled on into the motor show.
In the last week of September, when the final
details of the Falcon were revealed to the media,
new model and road test story requests for Ford
surged to 59 per cent of all requests on GoAuto
Online – a record.
Requests tapered off slightly in the lead into
the motor show and then surged again to 40 per
cent.
Since July, Ford has generated 84,700 story
requests, Holden 56,500 and Toyota 38,600.

Blind men cannot see; dont bother with LS1.

There's only so much you can fit on their noses, which they refuse to see past.

That's really good news, and well deserved to Ford too. Its also good to see Mitsubishi generating some interest with their car as well.

I gotta say Mistsubishi had the best stand of the big at the show. that Xray thing and lifting the whole car up was well thought out.

Ford did well too everyone loved the Fairmont on the wall. allthough I would like to suddgest to Ford...Next time put a bigger transformer in the cars, you would turn on the high beam and the power failed....lol

This would make sense mate... www.ford.com.au is seperate from www.newfalcon.com.au, whereas Holden has everything under www.holden.com.au.
