    I must say I hated the new look with the pre release pics but every pic I see now makes me like it more and more!! Maybe Ford have done things right this time.

    Mees thinks Ford might start stomping those kitty cat cars yet.

    The more I see them (FG pics) the more I like them. There's some nancy on the NZV8 site trying to say that it's just a copy of the VE. What a tosspot. The raking angle on the side of the FG looks good. It gives it a nice aggressive and stylish look. Can't wait for the FPV lineup. I particularly like the FPV badge on the grill. Raises the brand image in my opinion. Can't wait to see one in the flesh. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    Is that the dude that I said that I would much rather drive a Ford that was inspired from a Holden, than drive a Holden that was copied from Mitsi 380??. Laughing Laughing

    Hi Jan

    Not trading up yet, but I do have my name down for first option when one of the new GT/GT-P's is traded in. I'll have to have a look at it then. Very Happy

    Yeah that's the guy. I told him to take his hand of his other eye and look again. Laughing Laughing

    Maybe I should have told him to take his other hand off something else. Laughing Laughing

    Read it and weep V8 owners Sad

    The official press release:


    FPV REVEALS POWER FIGURES FOR NEW FG MODEL RANGE

    Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) has today revealed that its new F6 engine will produce 310kW, while the new Boss V8 engine will increase its power output to 315kW.

    The new F6 will be powered by a high performance 4.0 litre turbo charged DOHC 24 valve in-line 6 cylinder engine that produces an awesome 310 kW of power at 5500 RPM, and 565 Nm of torque between 1950 and 5200 RPM.

    The new 5.4 litre Boss V8 engine also receives a substantial performance upgrade, producing 315 kW of power at 6500 RPM and 551 Nm of torque at 4750 RPM- an increase of 13 kW from the previous Boss 302 engine.

    "After months of speculation, we're proud to officially confirm the power figures for our next generation of performance cars," General Manager, Ford Performance Vehicles, Rod Barrett said.

    "After two years of testing and development we have two new engine variants that will deliver big performance."

    The new F6 receives a whopping 40 kilowatt increase, making it one of the best high performance six-cylinder production cars on the market.

    "The F6 is an amazing car with performance equal or better to many European sports cars, but at a fraction of the price." Barrett said.

    "Those who enjoy taking their vehicles to track days are going to really benefit from this car."

    To achieve the significant 40 kilowatt increase, FPV engineers strengthened the piston design and cranked up the boost. The larger intercooler is mounted in front of the radiator, with substantially reduced pressure drop across the intercooler which provides better airflow with no loss of boost capability.

    "With the new Boss 315, our engineers broadened the torque curve, which consequently delivers better pick and drive at a lower rev range, as well as better get up and go from a standing start." Barrett said.

    "As a result, the V8 powered cars feel lighter and more responsive."

    The 310kW turbo-charged 6 will power both the F6 and F6 Ute, while the 315kW Boss V8 will feature in the GT E, GT-P and GT sedans and Super Pursuit and Pursuit utes.

    The Boss 315 badging will feature on the GT and GT-P's new-look power bulge and engine cover.

    The F6 will carry F6 310 badging on the sides and rear of the sedan and ute, as well as the engine air cleaner box.

    "The power upgrades are significant on both our V8 and F6 engines and they perfectly complement the aggressive styling of our new range."

    Further details regarding FPV's new FG range will be made available closer to the on sale date in June.

    A bit disappointing isn't it - unless they have something in the wings for FG MkII

    Remember Ford get their figures by just bench running them without all the belts and pulleys hooked up. I reckon our BA turbos would be in up in that range now - let alone other people's ones that have had even more upgrade work done on them! And without spending a fortune by trading up either. Just my 2c worth.

    That is dissapointing that they cannot keep the same difference between the 6 & 8 as the BF. But won't change me that V8 burble will always win through.

    The F6 is going to be a nice car though the turbo boys will have something great to look forward to.

    The V8 will always have the sound but the differentiation needed to be more - I wonder how this will hurt sales of the 8 to be honest

    I think the F6 is a good way to lead the ricers into real cars. Once they've got a taste for them, when they grow up they can get a V8. A very sound marketing ploy if you ask me. Laughing Laughing

    I wonder what the power figures will be in 18 months time when Ford bring out the 6.0lt pushrod V8. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    And the 3.6lt Twin Turbo V6 F6. Shocked Laughing Laughing

    When I do trade up, it will be one of these, but not until they've been around for a couple of years I think! :albino:
