    FPV Unleashes New F6 X

    Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) today unleashed the highly anticipated FPV F6 X at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The new F6 X is the first non Falcon-based vehicle introduced by FPV, which will extend the FPV brand into new markets and offer customers a unique opportunity in Australian performance motoring.

    "FPV has always had the goal to extend the brand beyond Falcon-based product and I'm very pleased to be able to showcase the first new offering today," FPV General Manager Rod Barrett said.

    "The new F6 X is designed for the family that enjoys performance vehicle motoring and appreciates a true sports luxury feel."

    Derived from Ford's Territory vehicle family, the FPV F6 X is equipped with the class leading high-performance F6 270 Turbo 4.0-litre DOHC in-line six-cylinder engine, producing 270kW (362hp) of power and 550Nm (405ft-lbs) of torque, matched to the ZF six-speed automatic transmission and a full-time All-Wheel-Drive system.

    The F6 X is fitted with a number of the advanced active and passive safety features, including Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Traction Control and four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).

    Side curtain airbags and dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags are also fitted as standard equipment.

    The braking performance of the F6 X is enhanced by the fitment of Brembo six-piston front calipers and a new FPV calibration for the ABS and DSC systems.

    FPV engineers have re-tuned the ride and handling to produce a firmer sports feel, further enhancing the primary ride control of the vehicle.

    Exclusive two-toned leather interior

    The cabin of the F6 X includes a unique Shadow and Pumice two-tone seat trim, along with six-way power adjustment and three position memory for the driver's seat.

    "The unique styling of the leather seats is a standout, eye-catching feature of the F6 X and contributes to the sports luxury feel that permeates the entire vehicle," said Barrett.

    The two-tone treatment is continued through to the third row on the seven-seat variant.

    The instrument cluster features the FPV logo, an engine speed red line and distinctive FPV blue illumination, while FPV scuff plates and alloy pedals add to the list of interior appointments.

    Each vehicle comes with its own unique build plate mounted on the gear selector surround.

    The premium Interior Command Centre (ICC), with dual zone automatic climate control and large colour screen, is finished in a unique Molten Metal accent colour, while the leather door trim inserts are finished in Pumice.

    External accents stand out from the crowd

    Unique F6 X exterior styling cues include a high-tech front mesh grille insert, as well as a rear spoiler and alloy running boards with a matching body colour surround.

    The exterior design also features Molten Metal accents on the front skid plate, bonnet air scoop, door mirror scalps and rear skid plate, while 18-inch five-spoke alloys in an Alpine Silver finish are also exclusive to the F6 X.

    Exterior paint colours on the F6 X include Winter White, Platinum Haze, Seduce, Dash, Nitro, Sensation, Ego and Silhouette.

    The new FPV F6 X is due to go on sale in early 2008. Full pricing will be released closer to launch.

    Horrible ? pure opinion. biased coming from you? maybe. but lets look at September sales rather than opinions.

    "In September, Ford Edge sales were 11,632 and Lincoln MKX sales were 3,805. Both new crossovers achieved their highest retail sales month to date. The Edge and Lincoln MKX were introduced in December 2006 and already are among the best sellers in the mid-size and premium CUV segments."
    total = 15,437 with only two models.

    lets look at the acadia, outlook, and enclave numbers.

    "GMC Acadia, Saturn Outlook and Buick Enclave together had total sales of nearly 13,000 vehicles, pushing the significant increase in GM's mid-crossover segment."

    nearly 13k with three models.


    If someone needs to seat 7 or needs more room they can look at the expedition or the new flex.

    Yes August, people will buy crappy products if they like the style of it. Numbers don't mean it isn't cheap and style-free inside, or that it has V8 traditional SUV-like thirst for fuel or the fact that it's huge and only seats 5 people. Did I also mention it drives like floppy ass?

    Here's an opinion for you though - it's horrendously ugly and embarrassing like pretty much everything Ford US comes up with.
