2004 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo Utility 4.0 straight 6 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
Eats V8's for breakfast
Nothing so far.
The Falcon's 6 cylinder turbo engine is a credit to Fords engineering.
There is so much power on tap and it makes all the right noises especially the turbo at high revs.
The Ute handles extremly well for a leaf spring suspension setup.
Can get a little tail happy when driven hard due to no traction control which the sedans have.
The semi-automatic gearbox handles the power well and changes smoothly.
The interior is modern and very spacious for a ute.
The leather seats are a very comfortable and are a must have.
I love the blue lit instrument panel.
Missing boost gauge which I may install later on.
Greater performance increase is only 5k to double the power without losing reliability due to Ford De-engineering the engine.
Reliability for a turbo is perfect, very little maintenance needed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
