Gympie-based American vehicle importer Performax International has launched their 2015 locally-converted Ford F-Series Super Duty range of full-size utility trucks. Pricing* begins from $105,000*.

With Performax International approved as Australia's newest full-volume manufacturer, production has begun for right-hand drive conversions of the F-250 XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models.

Vehicles will be sold directly by Performax International and through dealers around Australia.

Every F-250 is powered by a 6.7 litre V8 common-rail turbo-diesel engine producing 328 kW of power and a massive 1,166 Nm of torque.

Combining exceptional power with six-speed automatic transmission and on-the-fly four-wheel drive, the F-250 has a five-tonne towing capacity unmatched by mass-market utes and 4WDs sold in Australia, plus all-terrain ability.

An imposing presence and luxurious interiors on higher grade models mean the F-Series Super Duty offer style, comfort and ability like nothing else on Australian roads.

Performax Ford F-Series Super Duty production marks a milestone for the company, which has been converting American utility trucks and sports car to right-hand drive for 25 years.

With the in-house ability to master the complex engineering and electronics challenges of converting the latest vehicles with high-tech safety and powertrain systems, Performax International has established a reputation as the leader in its specialised field.

"We're tremendously proud of this latest achievement, which is the pinnacle of all our years of experience and perseverance with quality standards," Performax General Manager Glenn Soper said.

"Old-fashioned conversion methods are no longer acceptable to customers buying these sophisticated new American pick-ups. In engineering, electronics and final fit and finish, the Performax difference ensures we build every vehicle to factory-original quality standards."

"The F-Series has been one of America's most popular vehicle ranges for six decades, but many people in Australia too are keen to see the nameplate back on the road here. Pre-launch demand has been very strong."

"We're totally confident the 13th generation F-Series we're building now will be the best ever seen in this country, with unprecedented levels of performance, capability, safety and comfort, all backed by a comprehensive, competitive warranty and roadside service."

The key to Performax Ford F-Series Super Duty quality is the company's ability to undertake volume series production.

Instead of vehicles being individually engineered and approved by government authorities, there are no one-off or handmade items among the 100-plus new components in a Performax F-Series.

All components are part-numbered and 100 per cent identical, ensuring consistent high quality and easy replacement.

Work is completed to ISO 9001 Quality Assurance standards. The company is also certified to ISO/TS 16949 (Automotive Quality Management).
