It'll probably have the Aussie turbo 6 ~= 300kW, the standard trim six ~=200kW, and American V8 ~= 270kW, if past models are anything to go by.

That's pretty nice...It's probably the best looking Ford (soon to be) in production too.

Not a bad car. The six has it's roots back when Fred Flintstone was a boy, but with constant revision and ingenuity it would have to be one of the strongest sixes in a production car anywhere .... it could even pull Ellen DeGeneres away from a ladies change room.

Of course the Falcon is a RWD family sedan.

looks similar to our new mondeo!
click here

very nice though!!!
shame we dont get an engine option like that, the highest we will get is more than likely a 3litre v6 with around 220bhp if the ST will be like the current one

(thats the closest i could find to it, im on my work pc and most sites are blocked!)

Greatest analogy ever . Every time she does a big event, she has to make a joke about her sexual preference lol.

I'd like to see a new badge on Fords. The "blue oval" cheapens the car to me.


-Who was Lizzy Logan?

Looks like the Fusion/Milan body.
Is it a longer body and wheelbase?
