Ford unveils its facelifted Falcon finale with new XR8

While its days may be numbered, Ford isn’t just going to let its Falcon sedan limp out for the Australian market. No, the Blue Oval is releasing a refreshed Falcon for its final years, and it’s lead by this, the new XR8. That’s right, this dead-car-driving is going to go out on a high note.

Ford’s global design DNA dominates the looks of the new Falcon, with a grille reminiscent of the US market Fusion and the European-market Mondeo. The headlights aren’t a straight port, and boast their own unique LED running light pattern (at least on the XR8), but the overall look is strikingly similar. Out back, LED taillights highlight the rear of the Faclon. Despite the substantial new fascia, this is still a mid-cycle refresh. That means most of the rest of the Falcon’s body panels are carryovers from the current model.

The XR8 model, shown above, arrives with a supercharged V8, allegedly displacing 5.0 liters. Unfortunately, details on the Falcon’s mechanicals are in remarkably short supply. Ford has committed to a range of turbocharged four, as well as turbocharged and naturally aspirated six-cylinders, in addition to the V8, although specifics on those mills aren’t available.

It isn’t just information that’s in short supply ­– official images of the new Falcon are limited to the pic you see above. Of course, we’re working on getting more of both, and as soon as that happens, we’ll be sure to update this post. Scroll down for the brief, styling-focused press release from Ford.
