Pursuit Might Have Problems.

Do you think with the release of the 285kw Maloo the Pursuit ute might look a bit on the average side? I have heard a few FF members saying that the Pursuit ute has a long way to go on the interior side of things for the type of money they have paid for them. I read this article on the Maloo out of the Ute mag. What are your thoughts on the 2 utes?

Remember the boss engines are still very very young whilet the Gen3's are almost on their last legs.

Re: Pursuit Might Have Problems.

tho i dont think it looks better than the vx maloo, with that much power,and all the standard features, this maloo would certainly be better value than a pursuit,not to mention quicker.....

Well to me the Maloo certaintly look's the good's and allway's has,just the overall apperance of the car seem's like you get more for your money than the pursuit,I dont know maybe it's just me but It's just the over all apperance and those dual exhaust tip's,mmn.

Re: Pursuit Might Have Problems.

I think from memory the sticker price on the maloo is almost $2000 cheaper as well.

Re: Pursuit Might Have Problems.

As a personal thing I still can not get over paying $50k plus for a ute, no matter what the brand. A warmed over Xr8 ute would do me a treat.

If I had to compare the maloo would get it this time around. It simply 'appears' (have not driven either yet) to be better value for money although techically more useless as a ute- Go figure

Re: Pursuit Might Have Problems.

I like the front as it looks very agressive but, the number plate in the tailgate looks shite and im not keen on the dual exhaust or the rest of the backend really.

Give me a Pursuit anyday.

Re: Pursuit Might Have Problems.

I personally dont like the rear end, zorst tips, or the rims.
And why is there a black bit between the doors and the side skirt?

Though having not diven either, i cant really coment.

Though i would like to see ford fill the gap between the cab and the tray sides.
