Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commodore SS : Comparison review

History dictates that (power) wars don’t end in draws. When the Ford Falcon XR8 arrived in 1992 it made an identical 165kW of power to the Holden Commodore SS and with 388Nm of torque listed a crucial 3Nm ahead. From either side of the trenches the two 5.0-litre engines threw grenades until Holden used Yank weaponry in 1999 with the 220kW 5...

2009 Ford Falcon XT Review

Ford offers an incredible package for the money, who else gives you a straight six, rear wheel drive and a luxury car ride with off the lot prices starting in the high 30's.

The XR8 sprint has been released but dealers are gouging customers for $70k-$72k driveaway.. The sprint has 2.9% more power and less than 1% more torque for $15k more!! Performance data puts them line ball also...
