Re: Next Model Ford Falcon

wishlist:
yep 6 auto ZF is obviously gonna be there
3.6L TDV8 option for the Territory hopefully
electronic park brake as in Disco3 would be nice
double glazed windows, better seals esp on upper models
more 300C looking on the Fairlane / LTD (maybe even Wide body on LWB)
steer-by-wire
brake-by-wire
electonic clutch?
Ethanol blend compatible engines (without reduction in life or performance)
stability control
top quality sound system option Bose, Dynaudio or Harmon Kardon
electric bootlid/tailgate/engine hood on upper models
reclining rear seats on LTD
XR8 engine on LTD
DVD AND sunroof on the LTD (not either/or)
air suspension on the Territory, Fairlane, LTD and Fairmont Ghia

ahhh that will do, i am not gonna buy one anyway...

Re: Next Model Ford Falcon

If rumours are correct, it seems there will be some engine tweaking (ie, increased power) accross the range, as well a 6 speed auto for this October 2005.

Regarding 2007, pretty much guesswork at this stage!!!

Re: Next Model Ford Falcon

When they slot in the 6speed auto, its also possible there'll be a price rise (that's NOT on Chevypowers wish list!). Although Holden's not charging extra for the 5 speed auto they have on the commodore SV6, having 6 speeds in an aussie built car would make them the leader in Aus.

Should also make better use of the engines too I'd imagine.

biggrin Re: Next Model Ford Falcon

I read a while back that FORD was taking supplier contracts for a 6 ltr V8 or something like that which will go into the FORD pickups and the Explorer. Considering the Xr8 and GT block is basically the same as the Explorers, they have to changeover to the new engine and I also read that they produce around 250 kw in base tune and the torque around 520Nm.
So hopefully that will go into the fairmont and as for the XR8 it will be 295kw and GT will be 330kw and wait for it
THE ALMIGHTY GTHO-375kw.
PLEASE DONT TELL ME IM DREAMING.

There was a media release awhile ago that stated that the planned 6.2 litre had been scrapped cause of a lack of development dollars. It was on an american website, autonews or something like that.
