If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

Even my nearly blind, half deaf grandmother knows that the VZ Commodore will be launched later this year, followed by VE Commodore in a couple more.

But I've heard nothing about the designation of the next Falcon will be. Is Ford so extremely happy with how BA's been received that it's forgotten to plan a follow-up?

What do we know about the next Falcon, which I'm guessing is due end of 2005...

Re: If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

I'd put my money on a series run I, II, III... Many people now associate "BA" or "Barra" with a very strong product. The "Berra" may not be a change Ford Marketing wish to make.

Re: If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

My guess would be a series II, followed by a new model...

Re: If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

Holden change their model designation every 2 years. Ford tend to change them only as required. Given that the AU ran from 1998 to 2002 with 3 series, I would imagine that BA may do the same.

Re: If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

Note that had the AU not been such a visual flop with the buying public, then it is highly likely that it wouldnt be the BArra. Ford took the initiative to distance itself from the "A" series and was smart to do so.

Well the new Ford platform is not due until 2007, so I guess that BA1 2002 - 2004, BA2 2004 - 2005/2006, BA3 2005/2006 until the new model. That'd be my "educated" guess, based on Ford history. Each series will be in existence for 18 - 24 months.

After that, maybe the BB? no idea.....

Ba series
C* series....

Re: If BA follows AU, what follows BA?

I was wondering as BC is probably the best for the next car, but they then lose the Barra tagline. We will have to wait and see.

What follows BA Falcons? At the lights, most Holdens.
