While the internet is alive with news of the new FG Falcon, Ford has quietly released details of the new BF Falcon Wagon MkIII which will go on sale in May - the same time as the all-new FG Falcon sedan and Ute.
The big news for the Mk III wagon is the addition of Dynamic Stability Control as standard equipment on the petrol model.
"The current Falcon wagon remains an ideal tool of trade vehicle for a broad spectrum of fleet and private buyers alike, who appreciate its large load area and excellent payload capacity," Ford Australia Vice President Marketing and Sales, Mark Winslow said.
"The introduction of Dynamic Stability Control, in particular, will see the Falcon wagon continue to fill an important niche in the business sector, coupled with competitive running costs, sharp pricing and the ability to carry large loads." he said.
The new 2008 BF Falcon Wagon MkIII will only be available in XT specification level with the choice of two engines, Ford's generic 4.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine or the optional E-Gas dedicated LPG engine.
The Blue oval will only offer the updated wagon with an aging four-speed automatic transmission.
Additional features include a new 'Satin Alloy' accents on the front grille surround, MkIII badging, new Warm Charcoal carpet in lieu of Medium Stone plus a new key fob with integrated flip ignition key.
The car also comes with Goodyear Eagle Excellence tyres, also used on the all-new FG Falcon range. Alloy wheels will be available as an option on the BF Falcon XT Wagon MkIII.
No images of the MkIII are currently available.
