Tested: the Holy Grail of Ford Falcons

The mighty Falcon GTHO has risen from the ashes, two years after the closure of the Ford factory - except the people who built this car can’t call it a GTHO, because it was never an official program.

2016 Ford Falcon XR6 Review: A fond farewell?

Ford and Holden. Good start. Ford and Holden utes, at the beach. Getting even better...

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...

1974 Ford Falcon 500 review

May 1974, and my hardtop rolled off the production line at Broadmeadows with a 302 Cleveland. It's now been stroked to 351 cubic inches. Pure gasoline therapy that is good for 23 litres per 100 kilometres, so it's lucky that it has a long range fuel tank to keep it on the street for those long cruising days...

1997 Ford Falcon GT review

When the 1997 EL GT Falcon was released, I was 21 years old. The lines, styling and stance did it for me - yes I actually love the Darth Vader-looking grill, and the body kit with massive rear wing. This was my dream car. Being a Ford Falcon lad all my life, growing up with Dad's Falcons, it was in my blood. I was driving an ED Falcon at the time...

2009 Ford Falcon G6E review

I'm not the type of person who holds onto cars for long but when Ford shuttered their Broadmeadows factory in 2016, I decided I couldn't part with my 2009 FG Falcon G6E any time soon. Call me sentimental but I was in no rush to be rid of one of the last in a long and proud line of Aussie Fords, a comfortable and characterful car that’s been a delight to own...

2009 Ford Falcon XR6 review

One of the largest, most comfortable cars that will fit grown adults without a care in the world using armchair technology. The driving position is fantastic if a one-handed driver, as both the centre console and door window ledge are beyond ample to rest on. This car should have only been in the ZF6 and manual version. With 3...
