NEW Series III Stuff!!

Check it out on the forte!! Price/spec options

LPG dedicated with 5 speed!!!
V8 LPG!!! (dedicated!)


Falcon S and SR disapeared..
However options seem cheaper..

You can make a nice forte now (except no man V8 but eh..)

Interesting picks:

Forte V8, LPG, LSD, sports, havoc kit

THEY HAVE DEFINATELY CHANGED!

When I first went there there was DEFINATELY a V8 dedicated LPG listed, as was a 5 speed LPG now it definately doesn't exist.

Don't know why they were there. Maybe it was just a few typos, maybe its a upcomming option.. But I swear they were there. I should have taken and posted a screen shot.

Now I look at it it was possibly a typo because the V8 manuel option wasn't there...

Plus I couldn't figure out why one V8 option with LPG needed a manditory sport suspenion and another didn't...

It was real, its just been corrected... Sorry everyone.

Its interesting to see how holden have drop a manuel V8 from the base executive, but Ford now has one on the Forte!..

The 5.0L 5 speed Forte would make a nice project car if you were into modifying it. For under $37k you can get a V8 5 speed, LSD, IRS and sports suspension!

If the av 5.4L V8 is a simular price I imagine they will be very popular.

Does the manditory means its included in the price? or you just have to select them?

Hmm seems like IRS is not avalible with V8 or manuel transmissions.

Which person is ford targeting who would use neither a V8 nor a Manuel transmission nor a LSD yet would pay $1,300 for IRS?

And some of the options are conflicting..

You can't get a LSD on IRS except on V8, but you can't get a V8 with IRS. !!!

Some options require you to tick the ABS pack, but there is not ABS pack.

I think its a step in the right direction, but still pretty complicated.
