Ford Australia investment spawn next Crown Vic

Recommended Posts

Blue Oval News has posted Ford's press release, which states the investment amounts to almost $1.4 billion USD. In it Ford details plans for a new global light commercial vehicle architecture that would be exported to over 80 countries, as well as an all-new Falcon and Territory. The Falcon and Territory would ride on a new large rear-wheel drive platform, which has led BON to speculate the next Crown Vic could come care of the Aussies. For that matter, the next Ford Ranger could also use Ford Australia's new light commercial vehicle platform. Of course, for either of these imports to happen a solid business case needs to be present, which, as we've seen with other Aussie immigrants like GM's GTO, is a difficult case to make.

In a vote of confidence for Australian achievements, not just Ford's, the Ford Motor Company Chairman and CEO, Mr Bill Ford said: "The skills and technologies available in the Australian marketplace are some of the best in our global organization."

Ford Australia executives confirmed that the local transformation of the BA Falcon, the clean sheet local design and development of the hugely successful Ford Territory and the development of the award-winning Ford Fiesta sedan for India, has allowed them to capitalize on their strategic location within the increasingly important Asia-Pacific region.

Interesting... one of the major US car mags did an article on the current Falcons..interesting cars. It would be nice to see Ford offer a modern RWD, V8 sedan in the US market--something that is a credible competitor to the LXes and coming Zetas..
