“We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to the styling and technology of the 2014 Falcon. Now we bring a very compelling price for customers looking for a large sedan, particularly the G6E Turbo and our XR Series,” Ford General Marketing Manager, David Katic said.

“Falcon is also the only Australian made large sedan that gives customers the choice of EcoBoost technology, six-cylinder performance or V8 sportiness. No other local carmaker can make that claim.” As well, customers are able to choose between EcoLPi and turbo variants, he said.

“This is the best-ever Falcon, introducing new smart technologies like SYNC2 with Emergency Assistance across the range,” Katic said.

Importantly too, the 2014 Falcon range will come with myFord Capped Price Servicing as standard for the entire Falcon range, which also includes the addition of auto club membership and roadside assistance.

Katic said myFord Capped Price Servicing was Ford’s commitment to a service experience customers could trust.
