The Falcon FG

What’s the new look for the Ford Falcon FG Mk 2?
You may have already seen what the latest Ford Falcon FG Mk2 looks like but if you haven’t then read on and have a look.

These latest Falcon images have been released, revealing a revised exterior style, an enhanced interior technology and many other added safety features.

The Ford Falcon FG Mk2 will be seen in Australia and New Zealand somewhere in the fourth quarter of 2011, and will be followed by the much talked about Ford Falcon EcoBoost later in 2012.

You are starting to see the Ford Global One design theme coming through with the FG Falcon.
The new Falcon has a smaller overall top grille and a larger octagonal lower grille, along with revised headlight and spotlight shape assemblies.

The exterior shape is a slight update of the first-generation FG Falcon, with the front-end styling taking its queue from the new Ford Territory SZ.

What’s the Interior like in the Ford Falcon FG Mk 2?

The new Ford Interior Command Centre (ICC) features a 20 cm colour touchscreen that has many new features. This includes the audio with phone settings and satellite navigation system for the higher spec’d models.

The highlight of the cabin is the Interior Command Centre (ICC), which is standard on all models except the XT sedan and XL Ute.

What comes standard in the new G6E and G6E Turbo models is a new sat-nav system. It has a range of new features including the Suna Traffic Message Channel with green routing. It calculates the most economical, as well as the fastest or shortest routes. It also has a 3D map mode, over speed, speed camera warnings, a street house number display, and a number of other amazing functions.
The fully integrated touchscreen interface replaces the old remote control navigation system.

All new Falcons get a revised instrument panel layout with new designs, colours and graphics and offers improved functionality. All the audio systems now feature USB connectivity with full head-unit integration.
There are six airbags, dual front, side and curtains standard on all sedan models, with the new XT, G6, XR6 and XR6 Turbo now matching the G6E and G6E Turbo. All sedans are also equipped with rear-parking sensors.  All the Ute variants will come with four airbags, dual front and sides.
The new Generation 9.0 Dynamic Stability Control system is now standard across the new Falcon FG range. The entry-level XL Ute will now benefit from Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control and brake assist for the very first time. Power output figures remain the same for all the models as far as we can see, and Ford is yet to confirm whether fuel efficiency gains have been made across the Falcon range.
