Question Awd Gtho?

Is there any possibility of, say, a 350kw+ AWD GTHO or variant, going into production. Keep in mind that Prodrive has extensive knowledge of this technology and also the development of the 4WD system for the Raptor

Thumbs up

I think AWD option for all FPV Falcons (and standard on GTHO) is almost inevitable, but how far down the track?

Barra & Raptor share too much architecture for it NOT to happen somewhere down the track!

The platform has a life beyond Falcon in the Raptor vehicle. You don't spend that much money on 2 years of product. Isn't the all-new next gen Falcon an 06 model anyway?

I think I read 06. A four year life cycle is probably the average in Oz.

Holden is reportedly set to unveil an AWD system for sedans/Monaro within 18 months, to which Ford has no response. But as has been the case in the past, Ford may be forced to follow suit.

Hmmm

Well i cant see barra being dropped after 4 yrs, 500,000 million dollars is alot of money to play with just for 4yrs.

i think 1/2 has gone into AWD stuff anf the other 1/2 into barra and beoynd.
