With the Ford Falcon, the Ford Motor Company of Australia has produced a front-engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle that has all of the latest technologies built into a sophisticated and stylish body. Developed with rugged Australian conditions in mind, a new EcoBoost system makes this a turbocharged, direct fuel injected car that is a worthy competitor in its class.
With a 4.0-litre engine that produces 270kW of power and 533Nm of torque, the Ford Falcon with its lighter body roars out of the starting blocks on 19-inch alloy wheels to reach 100Km/h in a reported 5.1 seconds. Supported by a ZF six-speed automatic transmission that ensures smooth and rapid shifts, performance remains high and steady. A very impressive mid-range response adds to safety when overtaking, which makes driving this vehicle on the open road a real pleasure.
The sporty characteristics of the Ford Falcon incorporates the latest kinetic design ideas, which include projector headlamps and LED position lamps that lend the car its unique appearance. The interior with its readily accessible, high tech features does not disappoint.
An intuitive eight-inch colour touch screen gives easy access to Bluetooth, satellite navigation with a traffic message channel and mobile phone and USB integration. Use of the Human Machine Interface system provides a simple means of controlling everything that an iPod, MP3, USB and smart phone have to offer.
A combination of good looks, powerful performance and luxurious cabin conditions have made the Ford Falcon a car worthy of the appreciation it has found.
