After a trio of teasers, we finally have it - our first good look at the last Australian-made Falcon.

Revealed in both XR8 and XR6 trim ahead of its official launch later this year, the 2015 Ford Falcon is a dramatic facelift of the current FG Falcon.

The glass, doors, and roof stay the same, but Ford has spent big on new sheetmetal, new bumpers and lamp clusters for its final Falcon.

We can't see the rear or the cabin yet, and there are no details on powertrains for the 2015 Falcon range.

It is known however that the current turbo and naturally aspirated 4.0 litre inline sixes are locked in, while the (ex) FPV 5.0 litre supercharged V8 is a virtual certainty for the XR8.

The EcoBoost 2.0 four cylinder will also continue to be offered.

This will be the shortest-lived Aussie Falcon in the 54-year history of the nameplate. Scheduled to go on sale in late November this year, production will run until October 2016 - the shutdown date of Ford's Broadmeadows assembly plant.

That gives the last-ever Falcon a lifespan of just under two years.

Though its production run will be brutally short, Ford's bold new facelift for the Falcon shows that one of Australia's iconic cars will at least be going out with a bang, not a whimper.
