2015 Ford Falcon UteSeptember 13th, 2014
Thanks to the Ford Falcon, Australia has one of the more impressive and powerful Fords on the roads today. And since people apparently have to haul around a lot of stuff down under, they’ve got an updated pickup/utility variant coming for 2015 as well – looking decidedly better than the outgoing model, thanks to a completely overhauled front-end.
The rear-wheel drive Falcon Ute is powered by a 4.0-liter inline six engine or can be equipped with a turbocharged version that bumps power to an substantive 362 horses. The XR6 variant gets an available manual transmission, 18-inch alloys wheels, LED daytime running lamps, fog lamps, sports seats, and other enhancements, while the XR6 Turbo Ute model (shown above) gets 19-inch alloy wheels and of course the more powerful engine.
There’s no plan to bring the Falcon Ute to the Northern Hemisphere. In fact, 2015 is the final year for production of all Falcons, so I guess we here in America will have to make do with our old Ford Rancheros…
