Set for public display at next week's Australian International Motor Show in Sydney, the new XR sedans get a new bodykit and revised exterior mirror treatment, while the six-speed auto XR6 and all XR6 Turbo and XR8 sedan models get new alloy wheels.
"The new look Falcon XR sedan is the most significant upgrade to the exterior design of the performance XR models since BF Falcon was introduced," Ford Australia Vice President Marketing and Sales Mark Winslow said.
Although a little hard to notice at first, from the front the new bodykit features a modified bumper with new mini rockers on each side.
The rear bumper also receives all-new side rockers and a new insert. The mirror scalps also get a fresh look, with all exterior updates finished in "high-gloss Dark Argent" accent colour.
"With its powerful and distinctive quad-headlight signature, the Falcon XR continues to have an unmistakeable road presence, while the new bodykit and individual paint treatments are sure to make the XR sedan stand out from the pack even further." Winslow continued.
Apart from the manual/four-speed auto XR6, all other XR models receive updated five-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels finished in a high-gloss Mid Argent paint colour with a machined face, along with a matching Mid Argent wheel centre cap. The new wheels compliment the updated bodykit and are available as an option on the lower-level XR6 models.
