I did all my research at www.ford.com.au
where if you go to commercial vehicles you will end up at the new falcon ute site. It has lots of specs and detail which will have you outsmarting the salesman in no time.
For example. If you buy a manual XR8 ute you get a 3.23:1 rear diff ratio. However, if you are wise you will know you can option the 3.45:1 which is always going to be the rev head's preferred option right?
