Ford Falcon FG X fails to fire, slumps to lowest monthly sales in nameplate's history

The refreshed Ford Falcon FG X has failed to fire in its first full month on sale, slumping to the worst monthly sales performance in the 55-year-old nameplate’s history. Ford sold just 381 Falcon sedans across Australia in January, down 17.4 per cent compared with the same month in 2014, and down on humble results in October and November (396 and 411, respectively) when the Falcon FG Mk2 was deep in runout...

With the launch of the Falcon FG X, Ford invited Falcon Fanatics from around the country to come and see the car, but not everyone could make it. So we're on our way in a Ford Falcon XR8 to see a very appropriately named Falcon Fanatic, Ozzie, who was busy working that day, to get up close and personal with the new FG X.

Fifty years of Holden Wagons - 2014 VF Calais Sportwagon v 1964 EH Special Wagon

The Holden Commodore Sportwagon is the only Australian-built station wagon you can buy. Wagons have been important to Australia, so James takes a look at two cars, fifty years apart - the 2014 Holden Calais V Sportwagon and the 1964 EH Holden Special Station Sedan. When the EH was on sale in 1964, Australia had a population of only 11 million people and was still a couple of years away from having decimal currency...

So here we are with the last ever launch review of the regular Ford Falcon, 54 years after the nameplate appeared in local showrooms and 42 years since it first appeared as a locally designed and developed vehicle. Ford Australia had only a limited budget of $102 million to spend on the new Falcon FG X, and it decided to focus the majority of the investment on the area it believed would have the biggest influence on sales for the last two years of its lifespan: styling...

The company this week launched its final version of the Ford Falcon – the FG X that will be built only until Ford ceases Australian manufacturing in October 2016...
