This isn't a suprise to anyone - you can walk down and see for yourself that the new V6 factory is not yet ready ....

Maybe the dedicated LPG will be an exception but the best part with BA is no one will take them lightly. Even base models with 182kw & 380nm will go good. VT and VX supercharged 6s will suddenly be in the leuge of an XT {base} Falcon.

The key difference is that Holden is refining and improving on a well respected package, whereas Ford has been forced to take much more radical (and expensive) measures in order to win back lost respect. That may not be an overnight procedure...
