Ford Australia today released full specifications on the all-new FG Falcon Ute range, showcasing all-new exterior and interior designs, an all-new front suspension, new powertrains with more power and torque, and a host of unique Ute features. Due to go on sale in June, following the release of the all-new FG Falcon sedan, the all-new FG Falcon Ute range introduces a new model line-up and nomenclature – just like its sedan counterpart – incorporating the new Falcon R6 models. The all-new Falcon Ute is an integral part of the extensive engineering and development program that has produced the broader FG Falcon range, incorporating sedan and Ford Performance Vehicles line-ups. A host of new features have been introduced as part of the FG Falcon Ute program, delivering clever and functional design elements to improve the overall day-to-day useability of Ute models in a number of key areas. The Falcon Ute Styleside Box has been redesigned and reshaped for FG Falcon, reducing the gap between the rear of the cab and the front of the box, and mirroring the contour of the corners of the cab for a more seamless appearance.
The top lip of the box has also been redesigned, with black aluminium rails running along its top edge. A new flush fit soft tonneau cover is a key element that distinguishes the FG Falcon Ute Styleside Box models from their predecessors. Optional on Falcon Ute and standard on all other Styleside Box models, the new tonneau securely fastens to the aluminium top rails that join the bedliner and exterior sheet metal. When fitted, the soft tonneau cover attaches to grooves on the outer side of the aluminium rails. The tonneau can be peeled up from any side and easily snaps back down into the groove like a snap lock plastic bag, improving access to the load bed and making it physically easier and quicker to open and close the tonneau. In addition to being much easier to use, the new tonneau also delivers a sleeker and more integrated look – the visible fasteners, or 'cotton reels', used to secure the soft tonneau cover previously have been removed, producing a cleaner side profile for the FG Falcon Ute. The body coloured plugs used in conjunction with previous hard tonneau covers are also no longer required.
The new flush fit soft tonneau has been designed to improve its ability to cover high loads, while remaining tied down and secure. It features elasticised clips on the inside of the cover, which can be pulled down and hooked onto the aluminium side rails to allow the tonneau to sit in a higher position than its normal fitment point, thereby creating a higher load space. The elasticised clips ensure that the tonneau is free to stretch across the load but still hold it firmly in place. On the inside of the new aluminium rails is an open C-shaped section into which adjustable load tie down hooks can be fitted. The hooks provide a more user friendly approach to securing odd shaped loads, as well as increasing the overall functionality of the load space. The FG Falcon Ute delivers added practicality with the ability to fit a configurable tray – a feature that cannot be matched by its passenger-derived ute competitor. Falcon Ute, R6 and XR6 models are all available with the choice of either a Styleside Box or Cab Chassis configuration.
The column shift transmission allows the Falcon Ute to be offered with a three-seater configuration, with the extra seat replacing the centre console in the middle of the cabin.
The fixed centre seat is fitted to all vehicles specified with the column shift automatic transmission, providing a seating position for a third passenger, including a new head restraint. The centre seat has been repositioned on FG Falcon Ute, moving 100mm rearward and 20mm higher for improved comfort and greater knee clearance around the instrument panel. When not in use, the centre seat backrest can be folded down to provide a centre armrest for driver and passenger, with two cupholders set into the rear of the backrest.
At the same time, to improve rear visibility, the new centre seat headrest can be removed, rotated and stowed upside down when not in use.
The FG Falcon Ute jack and tool package is located on the cabin floor, behind the passenger seat, in a custom mount – it is housed in a foam retainer, which is firmly attached to the cabin via a bolt and styled knob arrangement.
All FG Falcon Utes are fitted with a revised Hotchkiss rear suspension, which is a leaf spring-type suspension ideally suited to carrying heavy loads.


Its simple, rugged construction enables the vehicle's load to be spread over more of the chassis than is possible with a coil spring-type rear suspension, which transfers the load to a single point on either side of the vehicle.
All Falcon Utes are also fitted with monotube shock absorbers on the front suspension, further enhancing the dynamics capability of the FG Falcon Ute through better body control and handling. Certain Falcon Ute models – Falcon Ute and R6 Cab Chassis – are fitted with one-tonne suspension as standard equipment, while it is available as an option on other models in the FG Falcon Ute range – Falcon Ute and R6 Styleside Box, as well as XR6 Cab Chassis.
The new FG Falcon Ute range maintains its competitive advantage by offering large maximum payload capacities on a number of key models, while still delivering car-like comfort, performance and handling, inside and out.
When an automatic transmission is optioned, all vehicles in the new FG Falcon Ute range, including the XR6 Turbo model, have a class-leading, maximum braked towing capacity of up to 2300 kg, when fitted with a genuine Ford heavy duty towpack and load levelling kit. A range of new tyres was developed especially for the FG Falcon range, bringing improvements in road noise, wet grip, dry grip and handling, steering compliance, ride, rolling resistance and steering linearity. A satellite navigation system is available on Falcon Ute for the first time with the introduction of FG Falcon Ute. In addition to the introduction of satellite navigation on Falcon Ute, iPod Integration and Bluetooth mobile phone integration are also available across the FG Falcon Ute range. Conveniently and securely packaged in a custom pouch located in the centre console storage bin, the iPod unit is also charged by the vehicle interface once connected, whether it is in operation or turned off, which ensures it is available on demand. Available on all Falcon Ute models as part of an optional Technology Pack, which also includes the Bluetooth mobile phone integration module, this next generation technology sets the Falcon Ute apart from its competitor.
The Bluetooth module allows eight mobile phones to be paired with the system for the purpose of 'hands-free' in-vehicle communication – with an inbuilt microphone in the overhead console, the user does not need to touch the handset to interact with the phone.
A short press of the phone button, when not in a call, provides a shortcut to the most recently dialled number.
Users are notified of an incoming call via their ring tone through the audio system speakers, as well as via a message prompt on the MFD. The FG Falcon Ute incorporates the next stage of Ford's Intelligent Safety System – a combination of latest generation safety devices and electronic management tools that combine state-of-the-art restraint systems with intelligent monitoring of crash severity and occupant positioning.
With most crash events occurring in less than 100 milliseconds, the ability to rapidly differentiate between types of events is extremely important.
In order to ensure appropriate response levels, 'abuse' testing is conducted on the vehicle to calibrate the sensors not to activate airbags and other safety measures in the case of non-crash related incidents such as shopping trolleys running into the doors. The FG Falcon Ute features a dual stage driver airbag and front passenger airbag as standard equipment across the range, with new vent sizes, folding patterns, inflators and increased volume providing enhanced injury protection while also meeting all of Ford's rigorous safety requirements.
After continuous periods of driving, a fatigue warning sounds to remind the driver to rest. The front headlamps of the all-new FG Falcon Ute temporarily remain on once the vehicle is locked to provide lighting to guide occupants into their dwellings or other locations. Available in both Cab Chassis and Styleside Box configurations, with a range of models spanning from basic tool of trade through to sports performance, the all-new FG Falcon Ute is tough enough to get the job done, while providing car-like benefits other light commercial vehicles cannot match. XR6 turbo into the 9s ~ NOT240 Steel's Ford Falcon BA XR6 turbo runs a personal best time at Heathcote Park Raceway.

I would love to customize a little more on the performance side but just can't seem to find any aftermarket companies here in the U.S.
Only thing I have found after hours of searching online is directly from Impul Japan, but do you see the prices? I wonder if Maxima coilovers will allow you to lower the front, rears you can prob just cut the springs.
I originally thought I was going to have to cut into the molding of the skirt to make it fit, but I figured out a way.


I wish I could get some coilovers so that I could mess around with the height adjustment when ever I needed but we're basically screwed finding anything aftermarket for our MOs.
The new rails are powder coated for increased durability and provide the fastening points for the new, flush fit soft tonneau cover and tie down anchor points.
The new tie down hooks can be repositioned at convenient points along the side rail, or removed entirely, and extra tie down hooks can be fitted if required.
The new package supersedes the 'jack in a bag' previously fitted to Falcon Ute models, thereby removing the jack from general storage space for a neater overall design, with the package now designated to a fixed position. The leaf spring design enables load-induced stress on the suspension and chassis to be more evenly distributed, as well as better managed and controlled. Falcon R6 and Falcon XR Ute models with sports suspension are also fitted with monotube shock absorbers on the rear suspension, which improve the dynamics profile of each model across the areas of ride, steering and handling. This tough suspension set-up provides a vehicle payload of more than 1000 kg, with some of the Cab Chassis models providing a maximum payload of 1240 kg. Combined with an unmatched range of high-torque engines – a 4.0-litre I6 in naturally aspirated, dedicated LPG or turbocharged configuration, along with the Boss 290 V8 – the new FG Falcon Ute range is the ideal tow vehicle, whether it is for work or a weekend away.
The system is as per FG Falcon sedan – a new SD card-based navigation system in lieu of the DVD based system used in prior models. In conjunction with the new audio systems developed for FG Falcon, a new iPod Integration feature enables Falcon Ute customers to fully integrate an iPod to the vehicle. A multi-function phone button on the steering wheel allows the user to make outgoing calls and accept or reject incoming calls.
The voice tags feature allows users to dial any number in their phone book – providing voice tags have been set-up on the phone – without needing to pick up their mobile phone, while a "Change Connected Phone" function in the phone menu allows the user to easily change between paired phones. Detection of crash situations is instantaneous, as the sensors literally hear the event occurring through pressure waves – before the panels have even started to deform. The fatigue warning is generally set at two hours but can be modified according to driver preferences.
The lighting feature provides additional security and peace-of-mind for drivers and passengers.
I have been waiting (and searching the web) for pics of the aero kit on a newer Mo in my color.
Do you think the opening in the lower grill area is the same shape and size as the original? I can't tell from the pics, but do the side skirts delete the chrome strip along the lower side rails of the car?
Stiffened three-pin, leaf spring shackles, which control the position of the spring, are a key feature of the revised rear suspension, to deliver improved steering precision and handling balance. The standard Falcon Ute ?-tonne Styleside Box model and Falcon Ute, Falcon R6 Cab Chassis and R6 Styleside Box models with optional one-tonne suspension, all employ twin-tube shock absorbers on the rear suspension. The standard towpack is rated for a carrying capacity of up to 1600 kg, while manual transmission models have a maximum towing capacity of up to 1200 kg.
I ask because I would like to put my grill insert into that area if I replaced the lower section with the aero kit.
