New to XR

From the month of april, climate control will be available on XR sedans. It will be offered as part of the luxury pack, which also consists of leather, outside temp display, auto headlamp off, analogue clock and premuim sound with the colour tft screen. Just what the punters want.

Re: New to XR

Thats what i've been wanting ever since they released Barra.

I found it ridiculous that the only performance orientated Barra (the GT-P) was available with this.

It's about time they introduced this, it gives them such a better look.

Mine will definitely have this when it comes to buying in the next few months.

Re: New to XR

The pricing is yet to be released but i am sure that it is going to be really popular. There are also 3 new colours in April. Blood Orange will be discontinued and replaced by Mandarin which is a metallic orange with yellow metallic flakes. Looks fantastic. Envi which is a similar green to hothouse, Vibe is a strikeing new metallic purple which is really high in metallic flake and is much darker than phantom. There is also Indiana which is exclusive to territory. Great move by Ford. Some exciting stuff.

Re: New to XR

Is the Mandarin colour similar to the colour that the Predator was?

Re: New to XR

sounds good, just what they need to freshen up the range a little.

Alsmost makes it feel like a series 2 update!

I was hoping to hold out to series 2 in case any decent upgrades happen, but it seems these will do me fine.
