You are right to bring about this issue.. with Falcon's main advantage over the Commodore now gone, Falcon will be faced with the fact tradey's can look to buying the Commodore over the Falcon.
Second to that fact is.. regarding the 4wd/awd issue, Holden will soon have this in their ute range (will the awd be 1 tonne? cab chassis?) Ford need to respond to this issue.. and quickly.
But I do ask.. is the fact that Falcon had this advantage over the commodore the sole reason it sold more? It was the general feeling that it DID look better, and was the overall better choice between the Falcon and Commodore?
