I hope not.

Having the Barra release after the VY is better. Because it will take away the shine of the Holden if it is release a couple of weeks later.

Holden will probably have to do more now than just
change the tail-lights and grille - HA HA.

Well Holden can't just do things over night. Perhaps they can throw a feature here and there. But design of the interior etc would be pretty concrete. Ford have developed this Barra over a long while now.

I think Holden should be afraid... this new Falcon is going to be great!

I signed up after seeing the Falcon teaser site(www.newfalcon.com.au) it looks awesome!

Looks like there's going to be a good game played here between Holden and Ford.

Timing tactics will be very interesting........

Holden have shown to be good at looking at what the market is doing and adjusting accordingly.

If it is true that they are delaying it, then I bet they would release it straight after Barra to steal all the media from it.
