Ford Falcon Ute

Ford Falcon Ute

Model Update

Very versatile, the new Ford Falcon Ute has pretty much every tradesperson’s job covered. A massive tray on the back makes carrying large objects simple, while a low loading height makes getting the objects onto the deck a lot easier too. Five-star ANCAP safety results, very comfortable seats and driving positions, air conditioning and a 2.3 tonne towing capacity makes this ute a hard act to follow.

If you want a ute that has car-like safety and performance, then the 2010 Ford Falcon Ute needs to be checked over by you. This is a most stylish Ute which is offered in so many different variants. The Cab Chassis or the Styelside Box models can be equipped with the smooth XR6 engine, the throbbing XR8 engine or the blisteringly quick Turbo six-cylinder powerhouse. All in all, there is lots of exciting driving ahead for the discerning buyer of a quality new Ford Falcon Ute. Work never looked so good.

Aussie guys are tough! They deserve a solid looking ute to draw the girls. The new Ford Falcon “cuts the mustard” when it comes to hard charging engines and hot looking lines. Plenty of room, plenty of comfort and plenty of, the all important, grunty stuff!

In output terms, the Ford Falcon Ute whips plenty of its rivals. Sitting on 17-inch rims (Optional bigger rims – of course!), boasting a six speed auto or manual gearbox and showing off with an impressive 290 kW, 5.4 Litre V8 the Falcon XR8 Ute leads the charge. For those who like the effortless torquey performance of the multi-awarded XR6 4.0 litre DOHC Turbo engine, then 270 kWs of power is ready to pounce at the prod of your right foot. Yet even the basic models (What I would consider the real work horses that perhaps the average bloke will buy.) are powerful enough. Four Litres of straight six power is available on the very reasonably priced base model Falcon Ute. You may be a prudent buyer who requires a cheaper alternative fuel source. Then you will enjoy Ford’s option of the LPG Falcon Ute.

Not sure about the carrying capacity? Ford has two body types on offer: the Cab Chassis, and the Styleside box. Both are designed to carry massive loads (rated for 1-tonne), and the towing ability of the new Ford Falcon Ute is exceptional. An optional 2300 kg towing package is available for your Falcon ute, otherwise a very capable 1600 kg towing capacity is standard.

It doesn’t have to be all work and no play! The stylish exterior boasts swooping, sporty lines that are very capable at turning heads. Enter the clean, Smart interior, and you will appreciate the Falcon’s sumptuousness. The seats are very comfortable to sit in, and the big car dimensions ensure that your roomy driving position carries over to your front passenger (two passengers if you opt for the bench seat option). The dash looks good and houses a premium audio system, air con and a hot looking multi-function display. The display shows information that concerns speed, fuel consumption journey distance and other important driving stats and info. The Falcon Ute is well equipped and comes with many great features. You will find the excellent “Human machine interface” that is accessed via the multi functional steering wheel. Bluetooth mobile phone integration makes communication with clients and colleagues that much more advanced, and it allows you to have an extra competitive edge over the other businesses. I-pod integration and sat nav make the Ford Falcon Ute a must for any discerning business owner.

Because the Ford Falcon Ute is an Australian legend and has lasted the test of time, the new Falcon Ute is exceptionally safe and solidly built. The Falcon ute is a crisp handler and boasts the lightning-quick Dynamic Stability Control package. Take a closer look, and you’ll find that the Falcon Ute is packed with all sorts of impressive safety bits and pieces. ABS, Electronic Brake force Distribution and airbags are all part of the five-star safety list. Optional head and thorax air bags are available. A very clever Driver Fatigue warning system is amazingly effective. Sports suspension and Traction control make the XR models a blistering driving experience. All Falcon Utes feel very solid on the road. You will enjoy their quick and responsive steering.
