Production of Ford’s last-ever Falcon and Territory lines is now underway, with ‘Job #1’ examples rolling off the line in Broadmeadows this week.
The media will have its first proper taste of the range in November, just days before the ‘new’ models make their official showroom debut on December 1.
“Years of design and development brings us to this point and the whole team have been laser-focused on bringing customers the best ever Falcon, and seeing them come off the production line, ready for owners, is a great moment for all of us here at Ford,” Falcon and Territory Vehicle Line Director, David Wilkinson, said today.
Ford has loaded the Falcon and Territory ranges with a number of key new features, including the latest SYNC2 infotainment system, digital radio, new trim grades and, in the case of the Falcon, a significant exterior makeover.
And while interior changes are far less extensive, Ford promises new fabrics and updated instrument cluster rings, finishes and detailing.
Up-spec models get new seat fabrics and leather, matched to new stitch patterns. A tan trim option is now available for G6E and G6E Turbo models, contrasted against black carpeting.
The XR range, which now again includes the hero XR8, also picks up new ‘3D’ rings in the instrument cluster.
Also in the XR range is a perforated leather-wrapped steering with accent stitching, along with a darker highlights to the dash.
“Everyone at Ford is incredibly proud of these cars,” Wilkinson added.
