Ford Falcon Range Enhancements Specification & Prices

Following the announcement of substantial increases in specification across the AUII Falcon range, Ford New Zealand has released a revision of these changes and a price list for the freshly enhanced vehicles.


Forte Sedan $41,400 Wagon $42,400
Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) now feature as standard on the sedan and wagon derivatives of the Forte. ABS Brakes were previously a $1500 option, but the overall price of the Forte has increased by only $300, a little more than 1%.


Classic $44,950
This vehicle is based on the popular Futura, and shares the following features:
4.0L Intech engine, Anti-Lock ABS brakes, cruise control, driver and passenger airbags, air conditioning, steering wheel mounted audio controls, 60/40 rear seat split, engine immobiliser, 15,000km service intervals, 2,300kg towing capacity and three year 24 hour roadside assistance.

The following features are available as standard on the 'Classic,' which retails for an additional $350 above the price of the Futura:
16" prestige alloy wheels, side skirts, leather wrapped steering wheel, four door power windows, CD/ cassette stereo unit, body coloured mirrors, a chrome exhaust tip, velour style trim and door inserts, floor mats and 'Classic' nomenclature.

Factory fitted options available for the Ford Falcon Classic include dedicated LPG and sports suspension.

The Ford Fairmont Ghia is now adorned with an additional $7600 of specification, which includes full body kit, sports suspension, 17" alloy wheels and full leather interior.

"What we have now is a vehicle that we believe is one of the most highly specified and desirable vehicles available in the Falcon range," said Falcon Brand Manager Ian Swann.

"It has the refinement of a top of the line luxury vehicle, and now bristles with extra specification and sports orientated enhancements."

No Change in recommended retail price, and features in addition:
Six stack in-dash CD player
Body coloured mirrors
