RSX + CLK
Subaru Legacy what?
Bring it over and put a "GTO like" name on it... watch it not sell... make a movie about it on TBS or TNT... put a washed up actor in it... watch the sales stay the same.
Acura TL-S > that
it dosen't look too bad. It actually looks better than all of Ford and Mercury's US cars, save for the thunderbird.
Are they gonna make a four door version and call it the Fairlane?
They already do. No turbo though.
For those of you asking to bring it over here, where should it be positioned in ford's lineup? In regards to product placement, they have no room here (unless the new 500 is the Falcon, but I'm not sure about that)
just be happy that FOA got off their ass with the Mustang.
great now ford makes rice
The 500 isn't a performance car, the Falcon is. They could move a few thousand copies a year for less than $30k with the current exchange rate.
at least its RWD.
TORQUE STEER ROX!
RWD > FWD
Turbo I-6 > FWD, N/A V6 every day, all day
Is there actually any mention of ford ever bringing the falcon over?
They are testing them in Dearborn, MI. So yes, the Falcon is going to make it's way over here.
The Ford 500 is your low cost alternative to the luxury sedans. The Falcon would be Ford's beefy grocery getter like the SVT Contour was.
They're evaluating it. Let's hope they do.
Ford also sells a CTS-V-style Falcon in Australia called the FPV GT. It's a bit spendier than a Falcon turbo, and has a bodykit, luxury interior with all the toys, and a smoking and sophisticated 394HP 5.4L V8
HOLY FUCK ITS A THING OF BEAUTY
Oh, the new Falcon.
NateG > BrianG >>>>>> KennyG
*.G > KennyG
so yer okay
thats a DJR car .. Dick Johnson Racing (i.e. mob takes a factory falcon and puts their own spin on it)
IMO the americans wont like the falcons.
actually we falcons
and we're angry that our own company constantly fucks us.
USA doesnt like turbos
