Love the performance and power of Ford Performance Vehicles (and the prestige of the name) but afraid that you can’t have one if you’ve got a family and all their gear to carry? Not any more. The all new FPV F6 X blends the rip-snorting power and passion of FPV with the practicality of a people-toting SUV (and you’ve even got a seven seater variant of FPV F6 X).
The FPV F6 X is unique among the FPV range in that is isn’t a regular Ford Falcon on steroids, like the rest of them are. Instead, the FPV F6 X was built from the Ford Territory, adopting the base model’s high stance and all-wheel-drive capacity. This is FPV as you’ve never seen it before!
While you could write rave reviews about the FPV F6 X and how good it is as a safe, practical vehicle with all the safety fittings (more on that later), the important thing about any FPV vehicle is the performance. Can the FPV F6 X cut it along with the rest of the FPV fleet? Of course the FPV F6 X can. Fitted with a grunty F6 270 4-litre turbo diesel engine, the FPV F6 X packs a 270 kW punch along with 550 Nm (count them, 550) of torque. As the FPV F6 X comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, it would be easy for someone to learn to drive on, but would you really want to put this much power into the hands of a teenager? The pleasures of the FPV F6 X should really be for adults only.
But should you let Junior try his/her hand at learning to drive in the FPV F6 X (under very close supervision!), knowing that this big brute is fitted with Brembo six-piston front calliper ABS brakes is a bit of a relief. Not to mention all the other active safety features in the FPV F6 X, such as the Dynamic Stability Control, the EBD and the traction control. Not to mention the side curtain airbags and the dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags.
While the FPV F6 X is more than capable of eating up the miles on a long journey, its good to know that the occupants will be comfortable. The FPV F6 X will see you right here, too. The dual-zone automatic climate control system makes for an equable interior cabin temperature that will suit those who insist on shorts and t-shirts year round as well as those long-sleeve hoodies and track pants. This climate control feature is displayed on the bold colour screen that nestles neatly into the attractively styled and finished instrument panel. All of you will be able to sink back into the FPV F6 X’s leather seats and enjoy the ride.
What does the FPV F6 X look like? Briefly, the FPV F6 X looks like an SUV and it looks great. To give a bit more detail, the FPV F6 X features chunky, aggressive styling with a discreet bonnet air scoop. Sitting high on its 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and looking at you with twin headlights over a mesh grille insert, the FPV F6 X looks like a force to be reckoned with.
With the FPV F6 X, FPV has joined the SUV area. Pack in the family, including grandma, and enjoy the FPV F6 X experience for yourself.
