    The only ford I would drive is the Ford GT, and I would take that over a hella lot of cars.

    Aussie Ford Fairlane. Looks pimp in terms of luxury and design. Clean surfaces and simple lines. :cool:


    Btw, the Ford Aus site is absolutely horrible design. :rant2:

    Large Ford sedan sold in Australia/Oceania. Think Crown Vic from Down Under.

    And yes, the Ford site for Australia sucks huge nuts.

    Unfortunately, no. :sad2: Like I said, the entire website sucks goat balls both in terms of content, design, and navigation. :down:

    Search for it yourself. You'll get glimpes of it if you click on the Refinement link.

    I was harrassing the Ford people at the San Jose auto show last week about bringing the Falcon to the US.
    [​IMG]

    It's RWD, and comes with either the 4.0L 6 (XR6 around 200hp), 4.0L Turbo 6 (XR6T, around 320hp), or 5.4L V8 (XR8, around 350hp).

    Instead we get the crappy "Ford Five Hundred", 200hp 3.0L AWD :jerkit:

    The Falcon looks a bit like the Holden Monaro :hs: maybe it's just the rims.

    The Falcon and the Holden Commodore (Monaro is the 2dr version) are direct rivals in Aus. Especially in the V8 Supercars racing series.

    The Falcon doesn't have what it takes to compete with the Accord and Camry in North America, those are the volume sellers here, and Ford needs a car that can go head to head like the 500.

    But fear not, Ford is also considering selling the Falcon here as an ethusiast niche vehicle, ala GTO, and I hope they do.

    I've never seen a Ford car with a 5.4L under the hood stock. :o

    I wouldn't exactly say the 500 is crappy. :p It's just not a performance family car like the Falcon. Fast and practical. :cool:
