2018 Ford Mustang safety not on local boss’s mind yet

When a two-star ANCAP crash score was announced for the Ford Mustang earlier this year, many of us expected that there would be major consumer recoil. But there hasn’t been. The Ford Mustang just saw its best month ever in Australia, with a huge 1351 units sold, and it is easily the highest-selling sports car in the country at this point in time, with 3772 units sold to the end of May 2017...

Ford ‘may have missed the elevator’ in the small SUV segment

The Ford EcoSport was one of the early arrivals in the now-booming small SUV segment, and that may well be the reason it has struggled for relevance, according to the company’s local chief. Ford Australia president and CEO, Graeme Whickman, told CarAdvice at the launch of the 2017 Ford Transit Custom that the booming small SUV segment is becoming even more important than it was in the past...

Ford Fiesta’s future in Australia unclear, Focus cloudy too

The future of the Ford Fiesta in Australia remains under a cloud of uncertainty, with the brand clearly considering whether it makes economic sense to bring the next-gen model Down Under. And now the Ford Focus could be in the firing line, too. CarAdvice spoke with Graeme Whickman, president and CEO of Ford Australia at the updated Ford Transit Custom launch this week, where the question of the Fiesta’s fate was raised...

Rally legends of the '80s go under the hammer

A group of ultra-rare 1980s rally cars will be going to auction with no reserve. Fair enough, too, because the bidding is going to go bananas. Indeed, sharing World Rally Championships and multiple rally wins between the seven Group B cars, prices could blow out to millions...

Ford Mustang smashes sales record as Aussie supply improves - UPDATE

Age is not tiring the Ford Mustang, which recorded its best monthly sales result in May by managing a barely believable 1351 units - despite no longer being the new kid on the block. This monthly tally breaks the previous record of 786 units in September 2016. The 1351 figure gives the Mustang market share of 61.6 per cent...

Ford outsells Holden thanks to Ranger, Mustang

The old Ford versus Holden rivalry isn't what it was while local manufacturing was steaming along, but the battle still matters to many. Therefore it's interesting to note that Ford convincingly outsold Holden in Australia last month - for just the second time since 1999. Ford Australia sold 7617 vehicles here last month, up 15.7 per cent...

Ford Fiesta Australian future in doubt, ST included

Despite making its global debut more than six months ago, the new-generation 2018 Ford Fiesta remains unconfirmed for an Australian debut. Likewise, the cult hero Fiesta ST, revealed in February, is no closer. The Blue Oval revealed the new iteration of the 'regular' Fiesta family last November, in Cologne, Germany, and it has already been launched in key markets throughout Europe where the B-segment is strong...
