FPV GT-F Review

After four days in the FPV GT-F Falcon, I have mixed emotions. I’m happy to have parked one of the 500 final GTs in my driveway, I’m sad that it is the last and I’m a little bit disappointed Ford didn’t do more with it. Personally, I would have liked to see the GT live on past the current-generation FG model...

Ford Falcon G6E Turbo Review

Fans of traditional Aussie muscle may still be missing the V8 engine that once nestled proudly under the bonnet of the Ford Falcon, but we doubt they’d be grumbling about the performance of the six-cylinder Ford Falcon G6E Turbo. Armed with a 4.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 270kW of power and 533Nm of torque, the range-topping Ford Falcon G6E Turbo remains the sub-$60,000 benchmark for straight-line speed...

With the Ford Falcon having posted its lowest-ever sales result in 2012, and falling out of the top 20 sales charts by one spot, the new year is a good time to pause, reflect, and ponder again if Australians really are missing out on a good thing.
