BA Mk2 thoughts

Why I started this thred was to give my opion why there is a BA mk2 and not a BB/C/D whatever the next model would be called.

I think that the supposed copperhead project is still going on at the moment and that we will not see this upgrade for about six months. This probably will include changes to bumperbars etc.

BA Mk2 was a stop gap as the copper head was probably supposably to be launched now but due to limited reseources (due to territory) things were pushed back slightly. however Ford still wanted to indruce something so to compete with teh Holden boys.

My guess is that copperhead was supposed to get the 6speed manual and autos and the external styling changes. but Autos aren't quite ready along with teh external mods so we have the half upgrade which is BA mk2 for around 6 months until copper head.

What do you guys think

Ford would not release an upgrade just for 6 months. It will be a bit longer than that.

Re: BA Mk2 thoughts

I agree, Ford seem to have longer life cycles for their models than GMH.

Because Ford actually put newer technology into their cars thus meaning they can last longer.

The BA was a vastly superior car to the VY (which competed head to head) and from what I have heard the BA still pisses on the VZ (which is Holden's new offering )

Re: BA Mk2 thoughts

The 6 speed box was only put into the performance cars cause there was a need to change the manual. BA was such a good car, they didn't need to change it at this stage.
