Ford Confirms Australian Mustang Specification

 

Posted by Waggin @ Thu Dec 11, 2014 1:35 pm

Ford Australia has confirmed more details of the Mustang coupe and convertible ahead of its launch in 2015.

Although official pricing remains unconfirmed the company has given details of what the four-cylinder EcoBoost and V8 GT models will get when they arrive mid-year.

Controversially the engine outputs of the 5.0-litre V8 in the GT are significantly different from the initial numbers quoted at the US launch of the iconic pony car.

The US V8 is quoted as having 324kW of power and 542Nm of torque while Australian cars are rated at 303kW and 525Nm.

But Ford Australia is adamant that the engines are identical and the difference in figures is due to the way each country officially measure engine performance.

A Ford spokesman explained the US cars are measured usin...

Ford Quits V8 Supercars

 

Posted by Waggin @ Tue Dec 02, 2014 10:33 am

Ford has turned its back on Australian motorsport, cutting ties with a team that brought it back-to-back Bathurst victories.

The manufacturer announced on Monday that it would no longer support the Ford Performance Racing V8 Supercars team beyond the 2015 season, a result of its transformation from local manufacturer to an importer of foreign products.

Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood says investing in overseas-sourced cars "made it difficult to renew our V8 Supercars team sponsorship".

"We know this is going to create some emotion," he says.

"We think V8 Supercars is a very credible series, but what we have to do is look at our expanding range of vehic...

New Ford Falcon is 70 per cent Australian

Ford has confirmed its FG X Falcon is the most home-grown vehicle built in the country.

The swansong model before Ford's planned manufacturing exit in October 2016 sources 70 per cent of its parts from Australian suppliers – more than any other vehicle built in Australia. As a comparison, about 50 per cent of the current Holden Commodore is made up of locally-sourced content, while the Toyota Camry uses about 65 per cent of Australian components.

Speaking with Drive at the launch of the updated Falcon and Territory this week, Ford vehicle line director David Wilkinson said contracts were renewed among most Australian suppliers following a tender process.

"There's ver...

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost first drive review

 

Posted by Waggin @ Tue Sep 30, 2014 11:32 am

First things first, the turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder in the new Ford Mustang is a good engine.

It produces a decent whallop of power (231kW) and plenty of torque (433Nm) which makes it feel like a performance engine. It is also good on fuel, using 9.4-litres per 100km on the combined city/highway cycle.

It is capable of moving the Mustang along at a rapid, sporty pace with relative ease.

But, from the seat of the pants, it doesn't feel like a Mustang engine and it certainly doesn't sound like one.

Over the last five years or so, the car industry has become addicted to - and forced by tighter regulations - downsize their motors. Small capacity turbocharged engines are all the rage these days for their ability to blend respectable performance with reduced f...
