Well one thing that strikes me as odd is the fact that drive couldnt even get their hands on an XT to test. Its actually a Futura!!
Next point is the fact that the XT's suspension is setup for a lot softer ride than even the Ghia! They say that the Sports IRS (Std on Ghia) handles a lot better.
On top of that, They reckon the steering in the VY is better than the Falcon's.... What the?
Executive used 9.2L/100km, a remarkable feat for a big-engined automatic sedan. By contrast, the Falcon XT averaged 11.9L/100km.
Final Point. Fuel consumption. I believe this will be one of the major selling features of the Vy Commodore. For years Holden havent touched the V6 engine and yet Falcon's have continued to put on weight, and Ford had to extract more power out of the engine to compensate.
I dont know about you guys.... But Im a little nervous. Please ease my concerns...
