2014 Ford Falcon review
The new 2014 Ford Falcon, after more than half a century could be the last in a long line of the Aussie-built sedans. The Falcon is the model for the Australian market, where it was produced, and which on this continent enjoys great popularity. In 2013 Falcon sales fell to less than 1,000 copies per month for the first time in the 52-year history, hitting the record low 594 sales in July of 2013. In the last two years has been released about 1,000 workers at factories in Australia, where those vehicles were produced. Ford would have to invest large sums of money in the next generation Falcon, but it is not likely that this is profitable investment. Instead, company confirmed sales of the 2015 Mustang for the Australian market. As reported in several sources, Falcon, one of Ford’s most popular products, could be shut down with the Australian market after the 2016th year.
2014 Ford Falcon updates
The new 2014 Ford Falcon is expected to be better than the every one before. Details for the final Falcon updates are still unclear, although company’s representatives confirmed that the big sedan’s refreshed look will be heavily inspired by the new Mondeo. Main updates are expected to be in enviromental area. 2014 Falcon will benefit from a range of environmental initiatives to improve fuel use and reduce its CO2 footprint.
Look for new front and rear sections to be packed onto the current Falcon and the interior given a revamp. As it will only have a two-year run, 2014 Ford Falcon is more of an update to the current model. The powertrain lineup isn’t expected to receive any updates.
2014 Ford Falcon performance and release date
The base unit will be a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, which will be followed by a locally-developed 4.0-liter straight-six engine in mid-level trim. A 5.0-liter V-8 will top the range, either in a revived XR8 or new FPV model. Enhanced aerodynamics, a new six-speed automatic transmission and the availability of low rolling resistance tyres are promised – meaning we can expect key changes to the Falcon sheet metal. Ford says the “high-tech” new transmission for 2014 Ford Falcon will offer adaptive shifting and deliver better acceleration, thanks to an ability to analyse the driver’s style and implement optimal shifting.
New safety and comfort technologies will also be on board, but there were no revealed details of these features from Ford representatives. It is expected that the final upgrades will be very extensive.
The new 2014 Ford Falcon will hit the market next year. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it is expected to debut early in 2014.
