Ford has today confirmed pricing for its 2015 ‘FG X’ Falcon sedan range, following details earlier this month of the line-up’s features and specifications.

The last-ever Falcon line-up will kick off with the base Falcon sedan, although it’s the XR6 that is now the most affordable model in the range.

Starting at $35,590 for the 4.0 litre petrol and six-speed manual model, the sporty XR6 comes in just under the $35,900 4.0 litre automatic Falcon.

Against the outgoing FG range, which starts at $37,235 for the entry XT sedan and $39,990 for the XR6, the new pricing also marks a significant price drop.

Importantly, the 2015 line-up’s pricing sees the Falcon made more competitive with the VF Commodore range, which starts at $35,490 for the entry Evoke and $36,490 for the SV6 sports model.

There are bigger reductions further into the 2015 Falcon range, with the G6E Turbo now a whopping $9685 more affordable at $46,550.

By comparison, the most affordable V8 Calais - no turbo six to be found in that range - is priced at $53,990.

LPG fans can add $2500 to the price of the Falcon and XR6 for the EcoLPi engine, while adding an auto transmission to the XR6 and XR6 turbo will attract a $2200 premium.

Ford’s four-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine will again be offered, available as a no-cost option with the Falcon and Falcon G6E.

As for the reborn Falcon XR8, you’ll have to wait: Ford is treating that model as a pièce de résistance to be detailed next month.

 

FEATURES

Standard with all models will be Ford’s SYNC 2 infotainment system with voice control, along with DAB+ digital radio with dual antennas, wi-fi hot spot and new alloy wheels.

The G6E and XR models will build on those features with the addition of rain-sensing wipers.

Upgraded safety across the range includes front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera (sedan only), and Emergency Assistance communication.

These join existing safety features that front/side/thorax airbags, Emergency Brake Assist, anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution and Dynamic Stability Control.

The base Falcon rolls on 16-inch alloy wheels as standard, while the G6E gets new-design 18-inch alloys. G6E Turbo and XR6 Turbo models get 19-inch alloys.

Breakdown of new additions:

  • Front parking sensors as standard (in addition to current standard rear parking sensors)
  • SYNC2 with voice control for in-car entertainment, audio and climate systems
  • SYNC2 Emergency Assistance
  • Digital radio (DAB+)
  • Wi-Fi hot spot capability
  • SD card slot (note: slot used to support satellite navigation system where fitted)
  • Two USB ports (ie. one extra port over current model)
  • Eight-inch colour high-resolution touch screen standard on all models
  • Eain sensing wipers (G6E and XR range)

 

POWERTRAINS

The 2015 Falcon’s engine range will again include four- and six-cylinder mills, along with the eight-cylinder heart of the newly returned XR8.

Standard in the base Falcon is Ford’s 195kW/391Nm 4.0 litre inline six, while the 2.0 litre EcoBoost and 4.0 litre EcoLPi LPG will offer 179kW/353Nm and 198kW/409Nm respectively.

The G6E will be offered with the 195kW I6 and 179kW four-cylinder engines and, in G6E Turbo form, the 270kW/533Nm turbocharged 4.0 litre I6.

For the XR6, there’s the 195kW I6 and 198kW LPG I6, while the XR6 Turbo gets the 270kW turbocharged I6.
