Ford Announces Pricing for All-New FG Falcon

 

 

28th March, 2008

Ford Falcon XT - FG series

Ford Australia yesterday announced the recommended retail pricing for the all-new FG Falcon range, including both sedan and utility models, along with the new BF Falcon Wagon Mk III.

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, 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."

"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 (RRP) 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 model, the G6E Turbo.

FG Falcon sedan pricing:

  • XT from $36,490 with the highest torque output of any naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine in its class, automatic climate control and a host of advanced and user-friendly features, the XT sets a new standard for overall vehicle package in the large car class.
  • G6 from $39,990 with five-speed automatic transmission and a host of standard luxury features for a sub-$40K entry price, the G6 is an affordable entry to Ford's sports luxury G Series range
  • G6E at $46,990 with ZF six-speed automatic transmission, leather seat trim and reverse camera as standard equipment, the G6E provides an unmatched combination of performance, fuel efficiency, luxury and safety.
  • G6E Turbo at $54,990 with the latest generation I6 Turbo powerplant delivering unparalleled engine performance, the G6E Turbo sets a new benchmark for Australian sports luxury
  • XR6 from $39,990 with a choice of six-speed manual, five-speed automatic or six-speed automatic transmissions, and 17-inch, 18-inch or 19-inch alloy wheels, the XR6 has something to offer every sports customer
  • XR6 Turbo from $45,490 with pricing and core specifications now matched to the XR8, Ford's high-performance XR models present an unrivalled two-pronged attack on the large car sports market.
  • XR8 from $45,490 with its signature bonnet power bulge, new Boss 290 V8 engine and unsurpassed sporty exhaust note courtesy of its unique-to-the-Australian auto industry Semi-Active Muffler, the XR8 remains the first choice for V8 performance fans.

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.

The XR Luxury Pack combines a host of key features that enables XR customers to specify their vehicle to a greater luxury level the pack includes leather seat trim, dual zone climate control, Premium audio system, sports steering wheel and interior finishes, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

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.
