Insider news on the new BA 2 (6 speed auto), Fairlane Galaxy and Falcon Copperhead
We had one of the engineer's who was working on the BA come over from melbourne to show us the new territory. I asked him about the BA 2 and what ford will put up against the VZ/VE commodore.
1. BA 2 should of been released at the start of 2004, but was pushed back til march then pushed back til middle of this year. he said it wont be put back anymore.
I asked about the exterior changes he replyd that there wont be many changes at all.
There will be a large amount of changes to fix some of the teething problems the BA 1 has at the moment. He says there will not be a 6 speed transmission in the F6 typhoon but there should be one seen in the new BA 2 only in higher models. There also will not be any power increases only a slight weight reduction.
With the BA 2 or before there will be a Fairlane Galaxy released which is a 260kw V8 and other added features.
2. The future Copperhead:
The current falcon in production will be called the Copperhead he did not give much information about this one but we can expect a GT-HO release in this series.
That is all i know at the moment, i have his business card so i will surely post more information as soon as i know it.
