In Australia and New Zealand, the Ford/Holden battle rages on. One thing is for sure – the Ford FPV F6 Tornado will send a few shivers down the spines of those sitting in the Holden camp. Yes, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado is as fast as its classy design suggests. It never fails to amaze me how a ute can look as racy as the Ford FPV F6 Tornado.
You won’t even have to hop into the cockpit of this bitumen flyer to realise that this will be a ride to remember. The 18″ alloy wheels, FPV Performance brakes and pewter accents signal that this ute can move. The Ford FPV F6 Tornado comes standard with an FPV soft tonneau cover and the option of an alloy sports bar. Also available is an optional hard tonneau with the FPV rear spoiler. I think this option would be for me.
Powered by a turbo-charged, intercooled twin overhead cam 4-litre engine, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado F6 Tornado has a colossal 550Nm of torque which will absolutely blow you away. This six cylinder turbo rates as one of the most powerful six cylinder motors available in the world and hence produces its maximum power of 270kW at 5250 rpm. FPV engineers developed a 4-channel anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution and two brake packages that will stop you in your tracks. This braking package certainly aids the driver confidence when the Ford FPV F6 Tornado is driven to its high speed potential.
The Ford FPV F6 Tornado has a T56 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission that is quick and easy to use.. What a drive!
Inside the cabin, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado ute features supportive, comfortable F6 sports seats. The driver’s is a 4-way electrically adjustable seat that is superb even when taking corners at full velocity. An interior command centre that features an LCD screen is situated in the central console, and a premium prestige 6 stack CD system gives a nice sound that can add to the already enjoyable driving experience.
A very concise safety system co-ordinates the release and synchronization of dual-stage airbags and front seat belt pre-tensioners to maximise driver and passenger protection in the event of an accident. Ford has incorporated into this superior safety package critical safety measures which include superior braking and handling, linked with ABS.
As a status symbol, particularly in New Zealand and Australia, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado has a high ranking. A business that has a go – forward mission statement would do well to acquire a business vehicle like this one. Standing out from the crowd and having the practicality of carrying cargo in the back, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado would easily attract precious customers’ head-turning attention.
Finally, to all those die hard Holden fans, fess up, the Ford FPV F6 Tornado is one great machine that would give any HSV try hard a run for its money!
