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.

country, with unprecedented levels of performance, capability, safety and comfort, all backed by a comprehensive,
competitive warranty and roadside service."
