From the month of april, climate control will be available on XR sedans. It will be offered as part of the luxury pack, which also consists of leather, outside temp display, auto headlamp off, analogue clock and premuim sound with the colour tft screen. Just what the punters want.

Thats great news. Been wondering how long it will take to be an option since holden introduced it.
Whats the retail price for the luxury pack?

Thats what i've been wanting ever since they released Barra.

I found it ridiculous that the only performance orientated Barra (the GT-P) was available with this.

It's about time they introduced this, it gives them such a better look.

Mine will definitely have this when it comes to buying in the next few months.

The pricing is yet to be released but i am sure that it is going to be really popular. There are also 3 new colours in April. Blood Orange will be discontinued and replaced by Mandarin which is a metallic orange with yellow metallic flakes. Looks fantastic. Envi which is a similar green to hothouse, Vibe is a strikeing new metallic purple which is really high in metallic flake and is much darker than phantom. There is also Indiana which is exclusive to territory. Great move by Ford. Some exciting stuff.

sounds good, just what they need to freshen up the range a little.

Alsmost makes it feel like a series 2 update!

I was hoping to hold out to series 2 in case any decent upgrades happen, but it seems these will do me fine.

Well what do ya know! After all these years Ford is beginning to listen to their buyers again! Lets hope this is just the beginning!

Exactly what I was thinking... finally something to bring some Ghia gear into the XR range and about [email protected] time! I'm guessing this is the start of the whole "customization" push that Uncle Geoff was talking about previously?

Hmmm interesting.. I wonder if this will be dual zone climate control as in the Fairmont/GT-P or if it will be a single zone config.

Probably dual as stocking parts for the single zone would increase part stocking price. Still interesting to hear... there's one excuse for me not to get a GT-P for a next car - just get an XR8 baby :)

Good to hear I've thought a package like this would be a good idea since the release of the BA especially for the XR6 Turbo also I've always thought the ute buyers were getting short changed not being able to get the colour screen hopefully they will be able to pick up climate & other goodies soon too.
