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?

Read the full article here. So, this is goodbye. The Ford Falcon – an Australian icon with a history dating back than 65 years – is no more. With Ford’s Australian manufacturing having shut down on Friday October 7, 2016 – after having started up on Thursday August 20, 1959 – the Falcon nameplate, one of the longest running badges in the world, has also had its day...

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...

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...

2011 Ford Falcon XR6 review

In a climate where performance is being sacrificed for comfort, reliability and practicality, cars like the FG Falcon series provide all of the above. Even in 2018, the FG stays relevant by providing a spacious sedan, generously equipped with gear and style, and powered by, arguably, one of the best six-cylinder engines ever built...

2014 Ford Falcon XR6T review

Let me just start out by saying that I’m not your stereotypical Falcon buyer. I don’t own any clothing with a V8 Supercars logo. I don’t go to Bali on holidays. I drink neither Jim Beam nor Jack Daniel's. In fact, even my now ownership is sort of an accident, considering I was originally heading out to buy an F30 335i...

2013 Ford Falcon XR6 EcoLPi review

As a daily drive mostly ferrying the family, the Falcon XR6 EcoLPi manages the gig well. But the devil is in the detail, and in this case, living with LPG fuel. My 2013 Mars Red (it’s orange if you ask ordinary folk) ride has clocked up 90,000km and never missed a beat mechanically since new...
