Can anyone tell me if the XR utes are going to be speed limited.
Thanks.

Yes, at 230km I think, same for sedans. non XR models will have a 200km limit with the exception of the wagon at 190 or 180km. The reason the wagon still has the lower figure is because it does not get the new two piece tailshaft as on the utes.

I thought all, non two-piece tail-shaft models were limited to 180?

Meaning; non-XR utes and all wagons are.

Aluminium tail shafts do not require speed limiting no mater the lenght (within realistic limits). Its no so much the lenght but the construction process.

My understanding was the wagon is limited to 180km/h because of the 1 piece tailshaft harmonics.

XT, Futura, N/A XR6, Fairmont & Ghia sedans and utes are limited to 200km/h.

XR6T & XR8 sedan and ute are limited to 230km/h.

I could be wrong about the ute figures, but I know for a fact that the above figures were stated by Ford for the sedans and wagons...
