April 11th, 2008



Ford Australia today announced full recommended retail pricing for the all-new FG Falcon range, including both sedan and Ute models, along with the new BF Falcon Wagon MkIII.

On sale in May, the all-new FG Falcon represents one of the most exceptional large car packages ever released in Australia, offering outstanding performance, fuel efficiency, refinement and safety, which has now been combined with a customer-focused pricing structure to deliver real value to new car buyers.

"The all-new FG Falcon range delivers sensational value to customers seeking a truly world-class large car to meet their needs and match their lifestyle," Ford Australia President Bill Osborne said.

"With the entry-level XT increasing in price by just $500 compared to its predecessor and the exciting new G6E Turbo setting a new sports luxury benchmark for less than $55,000, customers are sure to appreciate the world-class quality and value offered by the latest Falcon range.

"Excitement levels surrounding the all-new model have exceeded all expectations, with thousands of visitors to the Ford stand at the recent Melbourne International Motor Show sparking queues just have a look inside and sit behind the wheel of the next generation Falcon.

"Today's pricing announcement is sure to add to the level of interest shown by customers and those people who are already part of the Ford family, especially once they see just how competitive the new model is and all that it has to offer large car buyers."

The all-new FG Falcon range introduces a new model line-up and nomenclature, incorporating the new sports luxury G Series sedan range, along with three distinct exterior front end treatments and a significant realignment of models and specifications.

Recommended retail pricing for the FG Falcon sedan range starts at $36,490 for the XT and $39,990 for both the entry-level G Series and XR models, and extends up to $54,990 for the new sports luxury hero, the G6E Turbo.

In addition to the realignment of models and specifications, the range of stand alone options has been rationalised to offer customers a more concise options list with sharp, competitive pricing, while still enabling plenty of scope for personalising their vehicle.

The FG Falcon range also sees the introduction of a number of new option packs, which combine specific key items to make them easily accessible and provide even better value to customers.

The Technology Pack, which is available on XT, G6 and across the XR range, combines Bluetooth mobile phone integration with iPod Integration for a recommended retail price of $450 – a comparable price to the stand alone Bluetooth systems offered by competitors, but which in turn are not available with full iPod integration and audio system functionality.

On the XR6 the XR Luxury Pack is available with an RRP of $5,400 (a "+2" wheel size increase from the standard 17-inch alloy wheels), while on the XR6 Turbo and XR8 models the RRP is $5,000.

The FG Falcon Ute line-up offers an extensive range of model, bodystyle, engine and transmission configurations to perfectly match a wide variety of customer requirements.

"Competitively priced against both locally-produced car-derived utes and imported light trucks, the all-new FG Falcon Ute delivers genuine value to business owners and private buyers alike," Mr Osborne said.

"The new Falcon Ute line-up presents a compelling performance, safety and value package that is sure to prove popular across all sectors of the marketplace."
