When will MkII prices be released???

So they've done the little spoiler thing on the VZ and released specs in the same week as the Commodore's launch, but now the Holden's on sale when are we actually going to see the prices for the MkII Falcon?

I'm interested to see how much extra Ford think the 6 speed is worth and what they're going to do about things like Manual/Auto being same price on SV6 and other things in line with the small price rise the VZ got.

Ford in now cheaper model for model than Commodore for the first time I can remember. Will they keep that advantage after MkII is released???.

Re: When will MkII prices be released???

I'd suggest that Ford are still thinking about component upgrades and potential power upgrades to aggressively take on the VZ.

Still up in the air i'd suggest

I would hope that the prices stay lower than the VZ. Ford do need an upside to this release.

Dont flame me, I was just expecting more :d

Re: When will MkII prices be released???

I would say that they would do their usual 1 per cent price rise? It'd be nice if they held their prices to below Commodore, but, who knows.

Re: When will MkII prices be released???

I think a price rise is inevitable for Ford, but at the same time i don't think it will affect the sales. It's the commodore thats on the back foot now and playing catchup.

The SV6 is really nothing to worry about as the XR6-T will take care if it's 190kw, and whilst it has more gears (5 speed auto) it will never and won't better one of the best turbo charged engines out on the market today.

Re: When will MkII prices be released???

well the price rise is due considering that they kept the BA price the same as the AU. id expect about 3-5k price rise.

I hope you're not talking across the range, as I'd be buggered if I'd pay 3K more for cruise control, auto headlights new hubcaps and a MkII badge on an XT!!!

I would have thought the same thing, around $3000.

Had a laugh today though, went into a newsagent to buy a car magazine. The guy at the counter asks what kind of car I drive. When I told him it was a XR6T he said that I'd need all the help I could get when the new Holden V6 comes out.

He didn't like it when I laughed at him and said that Holden is no threat.
