The New Falcon 2009 2010 Reviews and Specification

The new Falcon 2009 2010 looks to be pretty darn awesome...problem is that there's a lot of speculation in Oz at the moment about the Falcon's future. The ol' "it's too big/too thirsty/waning sales/save the whales" discussion perpetuated by Prius drivers. It's a real shame it isn't made in LHD for export like the Holden Commodore as this could guarantee its future. I read in a car mag a few years ago it was to do with politics within Ford global (exporting the Falcon could mean a huge cut in jobs etc. in North America/Canada). Damn shame, too, because the classic big motor/rear wheel drive combo is getting pretty rare these days...

In North America, the only Ford sedans we can buy are the: Ford Taurus (a Volvo), Ford Fusion (a Mazda), and North American Focus (a load of s***). Everything else is sold as a Mercury or Lincoln and are the same basic vehicle as the first two cars mentioned or horribly overpriced. Why not a cheap, RWD sedan, Ford? One we can get with a V8? This should've been remedied years ago... because now it simply won't happen. how original, the G6, or even the G Series? Why didnt they call it the Ford Civic or Camry - it might confuse people long enough to buy one! having said that though, it does look good, I wish Ford north America would take a few lessons from their Australian and European counterparts. Have you seen the New Ford Flex? What were they thinking? The falcon would do well in north America. They could save a bundle if they axed their entire NA engineering department and used their international designs! No way! The falcon is much bigger than the mondeo in size. The rear view of the car is quite good aswell. You can check it out at www.drive.com.au/fordfalcon2008 Ford N.America needs to learn off Australia as they can produce much better cars with a fraction of the budget. Get rid of all the useless people who do nothing. Look at what GM are doing with Holden.
The new generation of one of the best selling vehicles in Australia has been presented today. The all-new Ford Falcon, also known as FG (for Fairmont Ghia, a previous version of the car), features three versions, the basic XT, the luxury G (Ghia) and the sporty XR. Each of these versions presents a different front end, but changes go well beyond that.The G line comes to replace the Futura and Fairmont models, and there will be no V8 option for this range. In place of the Fairmont V8 Australian customers will have to choose the new G6 Turbo or to change their option to the XR8, equipped with the BOSS 290 5,4-liter V8 engine delivering 290 kW (394 cv) at 5,750 rpm and a peak torque of 520 Nm at 4,750. Anyway, the inline six-cylinder turbo engine of the G6 is also able to provide lots of fun at the wheel, generating 270 kW at 5,250 rpm and a better torque, of 533 Nm between 2,000 rpm and 4,750 rpm.Though the engines can provide more power, they are also able to present a better mileage, achieved with enhancements in all engines and the use of new transmissions. The I6 Turbo, especially, uses a cylinder cut system that has been developed to provide sportier gear changes, but most surely has helped the engine reach a 10% reduction in fuel consumption.
