Re: No Ghia Turbo
I can see that, but XR6T + premium pack does not sit anywhere near Calais or Ghia if you actually get out of one and into another one. Seat adjustment, seat trimming, various other interior diffrence, rear armrest, bodykit, colour choice, bootlining, interior ambiance etc etc etc..
If they are so close why don't they just axe the Ghia (and the regular Fairmont) and sell the cheaper XR6 N/A and XR8 instead? Why would anyone buy the Fairmont or Ghia? Surely everyone would simply just buy XR6 if they wanted a six cylinder luxury car and a XR8 if they wanted a V8.
If Holden can see the diffrence between say SS and Calais, and sell loads of both, why can't Ford?
Seems like Ford has some serious model identity problems, Fairlane Ghia, G220, LTD, Fairmont, Fairmont Ghia.
Doesn't matter anyway really.. Calais it is. Faster, more economical, better resale, more technology, more powerful, more equipment, better features, better looking, significant upgrades over other models. You don't have to wrestle the option list with the salesman to get the right quote after 5 attempts, they would proberly have the one you want in a showroom, bingo.
